TagMaster CityRadar cuts through clutter

Swedish company TagMaster has unveiled a new radar designed and optimised for smart city applications in traffic counting.

Traditionally, it has been difficult for this type of radar to accurately track the number of pedestrians and cyclists because of the interference generated by passing vehicles. TagMaster’s CityRadar cuts through this interference, allowing the radar to count all three classes of traffic simultaneously in adjacent lanes – particularly useful in a city such as Amsterdam, with its huge volume of cyclists.

The radar has been designed without the traditional low-speed cut-out filters, to be able to handle paths with any combination of pedestrians or cyclists, while the advanced radar can detect carbonfibre bicycles.

“As far as we know, nobody else has this technology,” said the company’s international sales director, traffic, Peter Grøntved. The radar is also able to detect vehicle length and speed, allowing it to classify different types of vehicles.

A major advantage of the new radar, added Grøntved, was that it required no ground loops, allowing installation without having to dig up the road surface. It was also able to use mains, battery or solar power sources. “Solar is probably the best option, as you don’t have to install a power cable or replace the battery.”

CityRadar is available in fixed or mobile positions and has the ability for remote data collection. It is scheduled for launch in June, following around nine months’ development.
