POINTS AND TRAFFIC LIGHTS UNDER COMMON CONTROL USING VETAG

A trial installation of Philips' Vetag (vehicle tagging) equipment will be made in Amsterdam following a policy decision on adopting a standard method of automatic control of tramway switches and traffic lights. Vetag functions to detect, identify and locate selected vehicles in a stream of road traffic and is adapted to automation of LRT or streetcar signalling which must operate without external supervision. Vetag consists of three basic units--an interrogator installed along the roadway, a detection loop in the roadway surface and a transponder underneath each vehicle.
