Intelligent traffic detectors

Smart detectors for effective traffic management

Intersection controllers need them and traffic management systems need them even more: precise information about the traffic at location X at second Y. Intelligent traffic detectors that not only detect the presence of a vehicle or other road user but also provide additional information, such as speed.

It doesn’t matter if it’s a vehicle, cyclist, or pedestrian: With intelligent detectors, you can keep track of everything.
Depending on the requirements, different technologies are used for traffic and vehicle detection.

Intelligent traffic detectors record and monitor all traffic activity

Intelligent traffic detectors are indispensable for reliably detecting vehicles even in difficult situations and thus providing traffic management with reliable information on traffic density and flow. The devices and systems use various technologies that can not only control traffic signals locally, but also automatically detect the traffic situation or measure travel times directly and with high accuracy.

Specific technologies also detect pedestrians and cyclists

Many cities focus on environmentally friendly mobility and therefore want to provide pedestrians and cyclists with short and safe routes in traffic. This includes ensuring that the control of traffic signals can give priority to pedestrians and cyclists. This is no problem with special traffic detectors: radar systems, thermal imaging cameras or new AI-based detectors.

Traffic detectors can also be used to integrate pedestrians and cyclists into local traffic control.

Devices and systems

Optimal data for traffic control

Whether it’s a ground sensor or an overhead sensor, the right traffic detector can be used to solve any detection task in such a way that it precisely fits the application in question, both technically and economically.

Each intersection has its specific characteristics, which is why detectors must be installed in different situations.

Choose the option that fits best for the specific use-case

Whether for strategic detection or detection in the intersection approaches, whether cars, bicycles or pedestrians, whether flowing or stationary traffic: With our intelligent traffic detectors you will find the best solution for every use case. Special interface boards enable the direct integration of video and radar detectors into the intersection controller – saving hardware and cabling costs and simplifying configuration.

Ground Detectors

Our ground sensors provide you with highly precise information about the traffic volume in your city or municipality. Based on this information, you can better plan your infrastructure, reduce congestion and significantly improve traffic flow.

Overhead Detectors

High-accuracy detection with modern radar technology for intersection control: With Heimdall, the multilane radar detector smartmicro MLR or awareAI, Yunex Traffic offers a wide range of products for local traffic detection. In addition, our video detectors offer ideal solutions from cost-effective presence detection at intersections, via thermal image detection, to AI-supported optical detection and classification of road users.

For travel time measurement as part of strategic detection, we additionally support your traffic management with Bluetooth/WLAN scanners.
