Banner Engineering, a global leader in sensing technology, will use the ITS World Congress to present a wide range of sensors to detect vehicles for various applications.
For instance, the company’s Array products have been used for more than a decade for vehicle classification at toll booths. Being highlighted at the World Congress will be the company’s Mini-Array and EZ-Array measuring light curtains that can sense the profile of any class of vehicle. Banner will also be featuring its QS30 sensor with optical power that has been specially tuned to look through mist or fog, and to be sunlight immune, but not miss any cars or trucks. Overheight detection for bridges or tunnels is accomplished with the ruggedized QS30 EX/RX, which is also used in thousands of car washes.
For parking access control systems, Banner will be featuring a range of radar sensor and traffic light systems, including the R-Gage QT50R, a FMCS radar sensor that can detect both moving and stationary objects, regardless of shape or colour, while magneto-resistive and ultrasonic sensors with embedded wireless communication are the enabling technology for parking occupancy systems.
For traffic management systems, the company’s wireless I/O sensor systems can transmit a variety of signals to activate dynamic information panels.
