Project Details






The RTMS SX-300 by Image Sensing Systems an advanced radar-based roadside sensor for detecting and measuring the traffic. The ideal maintenance-free, non-intrusive sensor for getting exact volume, classification, speed and occupancy in up to 12 lanes of traffic from the side of the road.

The small, sleek design allows quick mounting on poles, making it very suitable for both urban environment and interurban environments. The SX-300 has a lane-detection wizard for minimizing configuration time.

The sensor combines maximum robustness for roadside operation with optimal performance through high resolution data capture.

  • Provides presence indication and accurate measurements of volume, occupancy, speed and classification in up to 12 separate zones (lanes) up to 76 meters (250 feet) away
  • Fully programmable to support multiple applications using simple intuitive software on a Notebook PC
  • True-presence: detects stationary and fast moving vehicles; single or dual loop emulation
  • Reliable all-weather performance
  • Low life-cycle cost with no routine maintenance procedures and high reliability. Typical MTBF 10 years or 90,000 hours
  • Easy to calibrate by fast, automatic set-up wizard


  • Can cover up to 12 lanes from the side of the road
  • Field proven technology
  • Multi-lane, side-fire sensor
  • Cost-effective solution for traffic management
  • Reliable Traffic Data
  • Incident Detection
  • Non-volatile memory data storage
  • Low power consumption


  • Traffic Data Collection
  • Congestion & Incident detection
  • Online web based applications


  • The automatic set-up wizard makes it easy and fast to calibrate
  • The all-in-one sensor mounts directly onto a pole
  • Robust data transmission if installed in conjunction with DeepBlue sensor
  • The sensor operates with the DeepBlue Core and DeepBlue Core+ central software
  • The DeepBlue Core can be installed locally, or at the trafficnow Virtual Control Center
  • Easy integration with ATMS systems through XML and SOAP, REST web services



This product was designed by Image Sensing Systems, and is distributed by trafficnow in parts of Latin America.


DeepBlue Roadside Router

DeepBlue v2t R-model

The DeepBlue Sensor R-model serves as a roadside router for the RTMS. The DeepBlue Sensor polls traffic data directly from the RTMS through a serial connection, stores it on the onboard database, and compresses and sends the interval data to a centralized server of choice. The DeepBlue Sensor is actively controlling the transmission, thus taking a great load away from the centralized server. This allows simplifying the network requirements, and improving the reliability of the transmission. The sensor can work with FTP, SSH and TCP Socket.
