Canadian company AUG’s Large Animal Detection System (LADS) is designed to minimise the hazards to rural motorists posed by wildlife wandering onto the highways – particularly in periods when visibility is reduced.

While offering traditional traffic monitoring, LADS also differentiates between vehicles and wildlife or people. The all-weather, radar-based monitoring system detects the presence of large animals on highways and provides warnings to motorists for as long as the wildlife remains in the monitored region.

Not only does the system increase human safety and wildlife protection, it is said to improve driver behaviour and provides high cost savings including critical infrastructure protection, perimeter surveillance and real-time monitoring for industry and military applications.

LADS is currently being used along sections of Highway 416 near Kemptville, Ontario and in Mount Revelstoke and Glacier National Park, British Columbia and has been selected as an acceptable wildlife detection system by Ministries of Transportation
in Ontario and British Columbia, the Estonian Road Administration and Highway Authorities in India.
