Siemens Mobility is to install 68 traffic detectors from ADEC Technologies on highway E661 from the municipality of Gradiška to the city of Banja Luka in Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Siemens says the TDC3-8 (TLS 8+1) traffic detectors are part of an ITS system which monitors and controls traffic on the highway.
The detectors collect statistical traffic data such as the number and classification of vehicles and level of service.
Milan Radivojevic, project manager at Siemens Mobility, says the project involves 18 gantries with up to four detectors at each site.
“The traffic data is collected and processed in conduct and traffic management system, which in turn controls the variable message signs,” he continues. “In addition, the data is used for the historical reports which further helps the roads authority to evaluate the traffic situation.”
