Intertraffic is where breakthrough products often first grab the imagination and this is likely to be the case with the Micro Lane System (MLS), enhanced with Idris Technology, from Federal Signal Technologies.
A completely new approach to the provision of roadside tolling, monitoring and management, it can be applied to many services which require vehicle detection or vehicle information collection and provides a complete lane solution 'in a box'. Importantly, it solves the often difficult task of integrating key sub-systems as well as providing many other cost, labour and infrastructure benefits.
Although an innovative new approach, the MLS has an outstanding pedigree guaranteeing global success. Idris is the brand name for a range of ITS products based on advanced vehicle detection and classification. It has found great success in the North American Open Road Tolling market where it has become the automatic vehicle classification system of choice.
Federal Signal Technologies (FST) is a company formed to provide complete ITS systems and includes Idris Technology, PIPS ALPR cameras and Sirit RFID Systems. The MLS has been developed by FST as a result of the bringing together of these market-leading ITS technology companies.
“MLS promises a complete lane solution for tolling, HOT lanes, EVR and incident detection applications without compromise on performance and with many significant advantages to the system integrator and end user,” says Mike Payne, business development manager for Idris.
