The company claims its in-ground radar technology is immune to electromagnetic interference and this enables the accurate detection of bicycles in the presence of trams.
German capital city, Berlin, has chosen to equip its roadways with Sensys Networks’ traffic detection technology.
Based on a series of trials at multiple locations throughout the city, the stop bar and advance detection technology will be deployed at ‘numerous’ intersections.
With a dense network of tram lines and bicycle paths across the city, the FlexRadar sensor was the critical component for Berlin’s traffic authority, according to Sensys.
The company claims because this in-ground radar technology is immune to electromagnetic interference, it enables the accurate detection of bicycles in the presence of trams.
“Berlin gets the high-quality data required by modern traffic management systems, and can do it in considerably less time and a lower cost”
The smart city technology company’s FlexMag wireless vehicle detection system, which uses magneto-resistive wireless sensors to detect vehicle presence and movement, will also be deployed at “wide-scale”.
“With the intricate maze of tram, bicycle and automobile traffic in Berlin, it’s critical to have accurate detection enabling [the city’s] intelligent traffic solutions,” said Amine Haoui, CEO of Sensys Networks.
“Also, Berlin gets the high-quality data required by modern traffic management systems, and can do it in considerably less time and a lower cost.”
Berlin’s general contractor, Alliander, has taken the lead to determine and to select the sites for these smart intersection installations. Assisting with implementation are Siemens, Swarco, Stuehrenberg, Spie and AVT Stoye.
Sensys Networks said it seeks to improve the way people travel through cities through accurate detection and actionable data to drive reductions in urban traffic congestion for partners and public agencies around the globe.
