Sick is highlighting three innovations on its stand: an automated hot spot detector, an integrated tunnel sensor and a vehicle profiling system.

The VHD Pro (vehicle hotspot detector) combines laser-based 3D modelling and infrared imaging to automatically differentiate between allowable hot spots (such as engines and transmissions) and those which could result in a fire. Without the need for human oversight, the system can detect a worrying hot spot (brakes or load) on a vehicle in less than five seconds. This allows enough time for the offending vehicle to be diverted before entering a tunnel or boarding a ferry or train.

The VISIC100SF tunnel sensor combines visibility, CO and NO measurements into one unit. Readings from the sensors are sent to the tunnel control room, allowing the tunnel operators to set the triggering values for the ventilation control system.

Also automated is the new vehicle profiling system (VPS Pro) which measures vehicles' dimensions using eye-safe laser scanners. As the vehicle passes through the measuring station it calculates its height, length, width and speed with information sent via a TCP/ip interface to the viewer’s station.
