Leading The Way In Intelligent Traffic Data Collection and Classification Systems
Today,Trakblaze Global has further expanded it’s weighing and monitoring solutions capabilities. In conjunction with Q-Free; a leading supplier of products specifically designed for ‘Weigh In Motion’ traffic, cycling & pedestrian data collection within the Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) market; Trakblaze Global and Q-Free provide class-leading Traffic Management, Infomobility and Connected ITS (C-ITS) / Connected Vehicle solutions. These solutions, together with a broad and unique range of sensors for infrastructure, vulnerable road user and environmental monitoring; enable Trakblaze Global and Q-Free to supply ITS
which address all road infrastructure operating and condition-monitoring needs. In addition, Trakblaze Global provides managed solutions which allow our customers greater flexibility in capital and operating costs.
CYCLE & PEDESTRIAN DETECTION
The HI-TRAC® CMU is a small, low-power, low-cost electronic system capable of monitoring up to 4 cycle lanes and 4 pedestrian lanes.
The CMU uses established piezoelectric sensor technology to detect bicycles in either dedicated cycle ways or mixed traffic lanes as well as pyroelectric infra red sensors to detect pedestrians. Unique algorithms developed by Q-Free measure the axle count, speed and wheelbase to distinguishing true bicycles from other traffic including child scooters, prams, trolleys motorbikes and mopeds.
The CMU can be powered by a small 3W solar panel mounted on top of a small pillar and supported by two rechargeable 6V 8Ah batteries to form a fully standalone permanent solution. The CMU unit is sealed to IP68 and can be installed into a small pillar or post. The CMU can be configured to automatically transmit traffic data to a web server for secure data storage or to a database.
WEIGH-IN-MOTION | SOLUTION OVERVIEW
The HI-TRAC® TMU4 is a high speed Classification & Weigh-in-Motion Traffic Data Collection System recording Vehicle Classification and Axle Load Data without interruption to traffic flow.
The HI-TRAC® TMU4 incorporates embedded Ethernet with TCP/IP stack, VPN and FTP as well as extensive 8GB data storage, and thus provides high-end functionality at a reasonable cost.
The standard configuration of two Class 1 piezoelectric sensors and one inductive loop installed in the highway per lane provides axle weight data to COST 323 Class B(10) accuracy in addition to inter-axle spacing and vehicle speed data. The system can be used as a statistical data device to record highway traffic loading or it can also be used as a screening weighbridge to identify overload vehicles in traffic stream.
The HI-TRAC® TMU4 can be interfaced to traffic signals or diversion signs to intercept overloaded vehicles and to ANPR or CCTV camera systems. The HI-TRAC® TMU4 uses Q-Free advanced loop profiling techniques to improve vehicle classification accuracy, and weight data is significantly improved with advanced automatic temperature compensation algorithms incorporated as standard.
