Yunex Traffic adds smartmicro MLR Radar Detection for advanced Traffic Signals
Yunex Traffic has announced the addition of the smartmicro MLR multi lane radar solution to its advanced traffic detection and management portfolio. With an extended range and flexibility, the solution delivers a cost-effective alternative to traditional induction loops, offering high levels of accuracy without the need for extensive ducting or disruptive and costly maintenance.
Wilke Reints, Managing Director, Yunex Traffic in the UK, said: “As the latest addition to our comprehensive detection portfolio, the smartmicro MLR enables all road user types, from pedestrians and cyclists to HGVs and buses, to be accurately detected.
“Operating effectively and accurately in all weather and light conditions, the new smartmicro MLR radar units provide traffic managers and network operators with a flexible and cost-effective detection solution, with the added confidence that the performance of their traffic signal assets and their road network will remain optimised – keeping people and goods on the move in all weather conditions and times of the day.”
Requiring no slot cutting or disruptive civils works to install, the smartmicro MLR can be deployed with the minimum of environmental impact and inconvenience to the travelling public and those living and working in towns and cities.
The system supports multiple detection zones (or ‘virtual loops’) and a range of intersection layouts, making the non-intrusive units the ideal detection solution, particularly for MOVA and VA signal control across multiple lanes. The system operates on a high frequency waveband and uses advanced algorithms to support both VA and MOVA applications where the identification of gaps between vehicles is critical.
The smartmicro MLR’s use of forward-firing radar technology offers improved accuracy over older side firing devices. This also makes the sensors suitable for installing on existing infrastructure, including traffic signals, with the added benefit that the sensors are easily reconfigured or adjusted in the event of changes to the road layout.
