RVC: Radar Vehicle Classifier

Radar Vehicle Classifier

The RVC: Radar Vehicle Classifier is a radar based vehicle counter and classifier with solar charging. Suitable for use in remote or urban applications, this system collects vehicle data with no in road sensors.

Designed to attach to a 50mm road sign type post, it is unobtrusive and looks like a piece of road furniture and solar panel.

Utilising Stalker Radars Stationary Statistics Sensor this instrument can report traffic data in real time as well as collect statistics on vehicle speed and type. It also has the option of integrating a speed awareness sign or other advisory sign.

Ideal for remote areas and unmade roads, no in or on road sensors means one less thing to go wrong with torn tubes or broken inductive loops a thing of the past.

Traffic Analyst

Traffic Analyst is the APP used to program, retrieve data and analyse data from the Stationary Speed Sensors. Incorporating a sophisticated, user friendly analysis tools, it give the user the ability to:
– Analyse data.
– View data in real time.
– Configure the radar sensor up both in the office and field.
– View data in real time after setup.
– Tailor the radar sensor to the site.
– Load preconfigured settings.
