RADAR FOR AUTOMATIC INCIDENT DETECTION AND TRAFFIC ANALYSIS

Thomson-CSF has developed two versions of radar for highway traffic management. The automatic incident detection radar is able to monitor multi-lane motorway areas over a distance of 100 meters to one kilometer for both directions of traffic, to detect incidents directly (real time), as well as congestion. The traffic analysis radar measures from the side of the highway each lane of traffic, the number of vehicles, the taxi ratio, the occupancy rate, the average speed and vehicle headways. Benefits include minimal installation interference and only minor sensitivity to weather and light conditions.
