RTMS SX-300 D-model

Project Details






The RTMS SX-300 D-model is a product designed in collaboration by Image Sensing Systems and trafficnow the advanced radar-based roadside sensor in combination with the most powerful Bluetooth and Wi-Fi tracking sensor in the world offers the best of two worlds in one product. The ideal maintenance-free, non-intrusive sensor for getting traffic data as well as online travel time information and origin/destination information.

Both technologies are designed for optimal performance in up to 12 lanes of traffic from the side of the road. The specially designed DeepBlue AA antennas offer optimal dual-channel performance without interference. The design allows quick mounting on poles, making it very suitable for non-intrusive highway installations. The lane-detection wizard ensures quick configuration.

This easy-to-install side-fire Sensor detects volume, classification, speed and occupancy along with tracking wireless signals from vehicles; from hands free sets, smart phones and GPS systems.

The sensor combines maximum robustness for roadside operation with optimal performance for both traffic data and vehicle tracking.
