In focus: Stephanie Hilton of Houston Radar
Houston Radar, a leading supplier of Doppler and FMCW radars for the traffic industry with customers in over 32 countries, is highlighting three major product innovations - Speedlane Pro with the Tetryon traffic server, Armadillo Tracker and the Armadillo Crossfire. The company says that the Speedlane Pro is the industry-leading true dual beam, ultra-low power side-fire radar.
It is designed to accurately detect lane, speed, and class of individual vehicles and compute per lane volume, occupancy, gap, average speed, 85th percentile and headway parameters in up to 16 lanes on the road, in all weather conditions. The Speedlane won the 2016 Intertraffic Innovation Award in the Traffic Management Category.
Houston Radar’s Tetryon traffic server is a customisable cloud server used to aggregate data from multiple Speedlane Pros in one central location.
Meanwhile, the company says its Armadillo Tracker, a fully integrated multi-lane, bi-directional traffic statistics gathering device, is the leading non-intrusive real-time and archiving statistics collector in the world.
It is also claimed to be the smallest radar-based stats collection box with target tracking, multi-lane and bi-directional capabilities. The device collects individual time-stamped vehicle counts, speeds, and class (up to three) per direction in up to 2+2 lanes, making it a perfect fit for traffic monitoring and speed study applications.
