Smartmicro, a Germany headquartered specialist in automotive and traffic management radar sensors, is here at the ITS World Congress to showcase its latest radar technology for adaptive intersection control and arterial management.
As the company points out, Smartmicro Traffic Radar technology is used today at thousands of intersections in the US and worldwide. It has proven to be robust and remarkably reliable.
Indeed, the company says that US University studies and benchmarks show that the Smartmicro Stop Bar+ technology outperforms all other radar detectors. It is also very cost efficient, being the only technology which can do stop bar detection and advance detection with one single radar unit, saving hardware cost, space and installation effort.
Smartmicro says there are many more advantages including lane specific advance detection and the capability to perform detection at long ranges, even for curved roads. The company says it not only offers the longest range radar sensors available today, but also the smallest size sensors on the market. Here at the ITS World Congress, the entire family of Universal Traffic Management Radars is being shown: products for intersection management, for traffic counting and classification as well as for speed and red light enforcement applications. Interface cards and other accessories, offering TS1 loop detector outputs, TS2 SDLC interface and Ethernet are also being presented.
