Have you ever heard of the term Kangaroo Driving? It describes a common phenomenon on the roads where speed enforcement systems are well-known and anticipated. Speeding drivers, not wanting to be caught by radar, suddenly brake in the area, and accelerate again after passing the enforcement system. Their sudden change in movement is not only dangerous to all road users behind them but can have an impact on the measurement statistics performed by less precise detectors.
smartmicro sensors are designed to eliminate the consequences of 'kangaroo jumps'. Their long-range beams catch the speeding vehicle even before the driver attempts to trick the radar.
Thanks to their 4D/UHD technology, our sensors provide a highly accurate measurement. Multiple independent receiving antennas allow the system to perfectly match the value with the correct vehicle and identify its actual speed - even if sudden pace changes occur. The ability to cover up to eight lanes maximizes the number of recognized offenses, thus increasing road safety.
