Autonomous Traffic Gauging

Description

Autonomous stations for collecting and integrating traffic information.

Applications

  • Gather statistics for analyzing, prospecting and auditing traffic.
  • Monitor access to parkings, service areas and shopping centers.
  • Support solutions for traffic analytics.

Features

  • Per-event report of time of detection,duration of presence, speed and length (1).
  • Periodic report of aggregated data: intensity, occupancy, average time headway, average speed and vehicle classification.
  • Local storage of data to support prolonged off-line periods without losing data. Data can be downloaded using a web interface.
  • Easily integrates with traffic management systems using open protocols and data formats defined with a SDK Wireless connectivity by wifi and 3G (2).
  • Remote configured and management via web
  • Integration with Sensefields' Fastrack cloud-based services to collect and download data, and generate graphs and reports.

Benefits

  • Low cost of installation and maintenance.
  • No calibration required.
  • Easy deployment: requires minimal intervention in the infrastructure.
  • Doesn’t require dedicated power line for sensors.
  • Accuracy not affected by either weather conditions or occlusions.
  • Itinerancy: components can be relocated as needed. Ideal for temporary measurement.
  • Simplified integration with traffic management systems.
  • Simplified in field and remote management using web interface.
