Long a major player in the European market, Vitronic is looking to expand its reach in the US with a new automated speed enforcement system using LIDAR technology. Specifically, the company is highlighting the use of its systems by the Oregon DoT at its booth at ITS American San Jose.
According to Rob Riebe, vice president of business development, traffic systems, crews in Oregon needed to count vehicles passing through a construction zone but multiple lanes and a constantly moving construction site made it difficult to get an accurate number using traditional radar technology. The LIDAR automated speed enforcement systems are able to efficiently determine the volume of vehicles passing through with three times the accuracy of the DoT's previous solution.
