Navtech’s new CTS350-X set for Swedish roads
NavTech Radar, the specialist manufacturer of radar-based automatic incident detection (AID) solutions, is unveiling its latest CTS350-X radar at the show.
The unit is smaller, lighter and easier to install and commission than previous models and its response time for detecting a stopped vehicle and sending an alert is less than 10-15 seconds. It is suitable for automatic incident detection on bridges and strategic roads and in tunnels and covers up to 1,000m of road surface (500m radius) and detects people within a 350m radius.
The product launch follows Navtech’s four year Framework contract with Trafikverket, Sweden’s national transport administration and will see the CTS350-X, which has an operating range of temperature -20°C to +60°C deployed on strategic multi-lane roads without a hard shoulder.
Dr Stephen Clark, the company’s technical director says: “Several of the AID projects our technology is implemented on include multi-lane running on strategic roads, with no hard shoulder, so fast and accurate detection is a must.”
The first stretch of road which will be equipped with the new CTS350-X ClearWay AID solution is a part of the E4 motorway, running from Stockholm to Arlanda International Airport.
