Highway Management under adverse weather conditions
The spring weather conditions in Europe and elsewhere can be challenging for road users, even the most experienced ones - such as truck drivers. When traveling longer distances, such as a cross-country highway, they can experience all seasons within a few hours - from full sun to snow, rain, and fog.
Those condition changes can be confusing and can negatively impact the driver’s focus and driving behavior. It’s especially these times when accidents occur more frequently - and the importance of fully operational highway management is evident. A reliable traffic detection sensor is key for the highway management system.
smartmicro sensors can stream precise real-time traffic object data to an operations center or collect it for analytics. Being the only multi-lane multi-object sensors that can be gantry-mounted, smartmicro detectors are the perfect fit for fixed or mobile traffic counting stations. They provide features such as incident detection and wrong-way detection to warn drivers about dangerous road situations.
smartmicro sensors are practically unbreakable, rated IP67, and reliably work in environments from -40°C to +85°C over a long lifetime. Their performance is not affected by dirt, smog, sunlight, wind, or sandstorms.
