The World's First Intelligent Thermal Traffic Sensor
TrafiSense is an integrated thermal camera and detector for vehicle and
bike detection. TrafiSense does not need light to operate, but uses the
thermal energy emitted from vehicles and bicyclists. This enables the
sensor to detect vehicles and bikes in the darkest of nights, over a long
range and in the most difficult weather conditions. The result is reliable,
24/7 traffic detection for a wide range of applications.
TrafiSense can be used to control traffic lights by detecting vehicles and
bicycles at and nearby the stop bar. The intelligent TrafiSense sensor will
transmit its detection information over contact closures or over IP to the
traffic light controller and will thus allow a more dynamic control of traffic
lights. This results in reduced vehicle idling time, improved traffic flow and
improved safety and mobility for bicyclists. Typical intersection applications
are ‘green on demand’ and ‘lengthening green times’.
TrafiSense uses the thermal energy emitted from vehicles and bicyclists
to make a distinction between both. The intelligent sensor can provide
the traffic light controller with specific information on vehicle and bike
presence, which allows traffic managers to make more intelligent
decisions and adapt green times according to the specific road user type
(bike or other vehicle).
Inverse Direction Detection
Through real-time analysis of thermal images, TrafiSense will detect
wrong-way drivers on highways, highway entries and exits, or inter-urban
roads in a matter of seconds. TrafiSense’s algorithms are based on proven
performance of more than 20 years.
Vehicle and bicycle counting
TrafiSense also offers vehicle and bicycle counting. This functionality can
work simultaneously with the presence detection functionality and uses
the same detection zones and regions.
