Wavetronix's Jeremy Wright with the company's latest radar traffic sensors
Wavetronix is using its exhibit at ITS America 2013 to announce improvements to its line of radar traffic sensors, and to unveil an application-based focus to traffic detection that the company says will give departments of transportation more control over traffic.
“Wavetronix has successfully demonstrated the value of accurate, reliable data in ITS and traffic applications,” says Jeremy Wright, marketing manager for North America at Wavetronix. “Now we are shifting our focus from individual products to comprehensive applications that use Wavetronix technology to positively affect drivers on their commutes.”
Invoking the iconic image of a cowboy taming the Old West, the Wavetronix exhibit illustrates the control DOTs can have over traffic. “Effective applications rely on accurate detection and reliable data management,” Wright says. “Wavetronix provides both; enabling agencies to implement a wide range of applications, from trip times and variable speed limits to high occupancy toll lanes and work zone management.”
At the same time, Wavetronix is announcing several changes to its SmartSensor line that Wright says will contribute significantly to the effectiveness of these applications. These changes include improved speed accuracy, extended advance detection, extended bar stop detection, and improved data management.
