Smart Video & Sensing Ltd & smartmicro GmbH plan combined exhibition stand at Traffex 2019

SVS Ltd join our German based radar partners, smartmicro, on Stand B005 at Traffex 2019 at the NEC Birmingham from April 2nd - 4th. 

Roadside radar technology is tried and tested for road vehicle detection. smartmicro traffic radars feature the most advanced multi-lane, multi-object tracking radar technology available today.  There are tens of thousands of smartmicro radar products deployed Worldwide. 

Come and visit us to see the latest products from both companies especially the launch of our recently developed radar product based upon tried and tested smartmicro technology for non-intrusive loop emulation. This technology is specifically targeted for replacing embedded loops within the existing Highways England MIDAS systems.

Cutting loops can cause a deterioration of the road surfaces and high cost of maintenance of embedded loops has led many operators to seek an effective technology to replace traditional loop-based systems.  

Unlike the older side-fire radar systems with narrow beams and occlusion issues, the modern smartmicro radars use multiple forward firing beams. This technology has many advantages. Vehicles remain inside the field of view for much longer therefore their speed and position vectors are measured much more accurately and with a higher confidence level.

The smartmicro radar can be conveniently situated at the roadside or mounted to existing infrastructure adding to its flexibility. No offset (setback) is required for pole mounting at a moderate height. This offers a great advantage over side-fire radar which generally requires a high mounting position and critical offset.The purpose made 'loop emulation' cards simply replacing conventional cards in the existing MIDAS roadside outstation.

" The combination of SVS with smartmicro at Traffex showcases our joint commitment to our home market" commented Peter Eccleson, Managing Director of SVS.  " We are looking at a number of other applications for smartmicro radars within the Urban traffic sector" he added.
