Vehicle detection technology for traffic enforcement

Laser Atlanta : 14 May, 2008  (New Product)
WIDAR remote vehicle detector can be used in toll applications and red light enforcement without disruptive roadway installations
Laser Atlanta has announced the development of new laser technology for the unmanned, remote detection of vehicles. The new Wide Detection and Range, or wiDAR, is designed for use in automated vehicle tolling, speed and traffic signal enforcement, red light camera applications and traffic signal control.

"Our new wiDAR is the latest in intelligent transportation system (ITS) technology to accurately detect the location, direction and speed of vehicles non-invasively," said James Kelly, President and CEO of Laser Atlanta. "The wiDAR allows transportation management professionals to detect vehicles without tying up traffic installing and maintaining inductive pavement loops. Additionally, the technology is designed to detect the presence of vehicles anywhere in the lane and can be used with red light enforcement cameras, or other ITS systems requiring vehicle detection."

wiDAR employs LiDAR, or lasers, and is independently tested to obtain measurements in any type of weather and on vehicles at a farther distance than other systems. With the ability to take a reading of a targeted highway segment in just 0.1 seconds, and virtually cover the lane, wiDAR is designed to interface with any type of highway monitoring system. wiDAR is Bluetooth capable and may be daisy-chained to provide multiple segment coverage.
