smartmicro offers traffic detection solutions for end users as well as sensors for OEM integration. Our radar technology is highly valued by numerous partners worldwide.


Over 150 thousand sensors are already deployed. With more than ten years of experience in the traffic industry, smartmicro is the perfect partner for traffic system providers and system integrators.


Our sensors feature most advanced multi-lane and multi-object tracking. They achieve highest detection performance, excellent counting accuracy and classification of moving and stopped traffic – no matter if the road is straight or curved.


Due to the innovative design, one single smartmicro sensor can be utilized for multiple applications: at intersections (stop bar and advance detection), for highway management (counting and classification) or enforcement applications.


Using ultra-high definition (4D/UHD) technology, traffic can be reliably classified in seven classes – pedestrians, bikes, motorcycles, passenger cars, transporters, trucks or buses and long trucks – to enhance safety especially for vulnerable road users.


Radar is the most robust sensing technology and is not affected by dirt, smog, sunlight, wind or sandstorms. Rain and snow have only a small impact on the performance. Our radars are almost unbreakable, rated IP67 and reliably work in environments from -40 to +85°C over a long lifetime.


Using forward-firing radar technology, the mounting position of our non-intrusive sensors is most flexible. They can be installed on existing infrastructure: at the roadside, the corner of an intersection, the median of a highway or on a gantry. The integrated attitude sensor reports pitch and roll angles of the sensor and simplifies the setup.


smartmicro sensors undergo a sophisticated end-of-line test and calibration procedure, as well as a burn-in stage after the production. The sensors maintain high accuracy by means of built-in self-calibration functions throughout the entire design life.


Our radar sensors offer fail-safe features. By means of integrated self-calibration and self-diagnosis functions, such as blind and rain detection, misalignment reporting and interference suppression, they ensure dependable operation.

our technology is unrivalled

Forward Firing

Unlike older side firing sensors, the modern smartmicro sensors use multiple forward firing beams which has many advantages. Vehicles remain inside the field of view for much longer, their position and speed vectors are measured with higher accuracy, and a better classification is achieved. Our sensors are the only technology available on the market today that supports precise trajectory tracking of vehicles. Due to their high coverage, vehicle positions can be tracked for up to 300m and over a 100-degree field of view.

Looking along the road, the mounting position is more flexible. On the roadside, at the corner of an intersection, at the median of a highway or on a gantry, whatever sensor position: forward firing provides the best coverage.

Existing infrastructure like traffic light poles or street light poles can be used. Other than for obsolete side-firing technology which usually need a very high mounting position, moderate heights are sufficient. Since vehicles are tracked over a longer period when they drive in the field of view, occlusion rarely happens.


One single smartmicro sensor offers up to 32 detection zones and can, for example, replace up to 32 loops. Additionally, the detection zones covered with our sensors can be configured in their position, size and function. Compared to in-ground systems, our above-ground detection technology is easy to install on existing infrastructure. 
This means not only that our sensors are a lot more cost-efficient, since one single device can cover an entire area. smartmicro sensors can also be easily reconfigured or adjusted in their position in case the traffic routing on-site changes or, for example, a bike lane is added.


smartmicro sensors featuring high-definition 3D technology provide Cartesian coordinates, velocity vector, range and azimuth angle simultaneously for all traffic objects within the field of view.

Our 3-dimensional radar detection principle measures:

  • Direct unambiguous Doppler (speed)
  • Direct range
  • Direct azimuth (horizontal) angle


In addition to these three dimensions, our 4D measurement includes the elevation angle simultaneously for all traffic objects within the field of view. The additional measurement of the elevation angle indicates the vehicle height.

Our 4-dimensional radar detection principle measures:

  • Direct unambiguous Doppler (speed)
  • Direct range
  • Direct azimuth (horizontal) angle
  • Direct elevation (vertical) angle


Most other detectors on the market separate objects by only one parameter, for example either range or speed. Featuring HD technology smartmicro sensors separate objects by both speed and range. This leads to robust performance especially in dense traffic conditions.

  • Separation in speed
  • Separation in range




smartmicro sensors featuring ultra-high definition (UHD) technology achieve the highest performance available today and outperform other traffic radars. UHD radar technology enables to separate objects by speed, range and azimuth angle and to measure elevation angles.

  • Separation in speed

  • Separation in range

  • Separation in angle



For reliable detection and control of the traffic flow at intersections, typically up to four sensors are installed. Those can be operated free of any mutual interference. However, with other, mainly automotive radars in the same area, interference could result in reduced sensitivity and detection range. This may lead to inaccurate traffic detection, which can affect the safety of all road users.

Thus, all smartmicro devices have integrated interference mitigation. A special algorithm detects and suppresses the interference adaptively. This reliably filters out any false detections and significantly improves the detection rate in scenarios with high interference levels. Also, the interference level is reported as diagnosis information.


Since many roads are not straight, smartmicro traffic sensors support any shape a road may have: not by approximating the road shape with many short straight sections, but by elegantly bending the virtual lanes – just as the real road is shaped.
