Smartmicro has acquired its traffic sensor distributor in the UK, Smart Video and Sensing.

Following the deal, the firm will be known as Smartmicro UK. "The entire team will stay on board to ensure a smooth transition," Smartmicro says in a statement.

Germany-based Smartmicro develops radar solutions for traffic management and says this acquisition "is part of its accelerated growth strategy to strengthen the international presence and create a network of the brand’s own entities in major global markets".

"This is a great natural fit between the two companies as we bring the experience of the UK market into the core Smartmicro team," says Peter Eccleson, MD of Smartmicro UK.

As a distributor, Smart Video and Sensing installed Smartmicro solutions at more than 500 locations, including the first Mova installation at Ashcombe roundabout in East Sussex, plus junction deployments in Coventry and Leeds and a recent bicycle detection applications in Plymouth.
