ADEC Technologies supplied customized vehicle classifiers to Tallinn (Estonia)

Eschenbach, March 16th 2012: ADEC Technologies delivered customized software for over 150 TDC3-5 vehicle classifiers that will help the city of Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, to get a grip on its traffic situation. Ats Tamm, chairman at Signaal, an Estonian manufacturer and installer of traffic products, comments “Our company was appointed to provide city-wide traffic information so that officials can base any decisions for infrastructure investments, including priority-lanes for busses, on factual data. As a result, our classification needs were somewhat different form the ordinary TLS-based classification scheme. In particular, we were looking for separate classes for our trolleys and articulated buses. ADEC Technologies worked closely with our engineers and added our classification needs to their detectors in very short time. The test results clearly exceed our expectations. We’re very pleased with the professionalism and speed that ADEC Technologies managed to implement our needs and have the products delivered so quickly.”

Markus Güntensperger, Product manager at ADEC Technologies adds that “Signaal has provided us with clear requirements and access to a test-site with excellent traffic mix that allowed us to implement the customization in very short time. Our engineers were especially pleased with the short turnaround-time for technical and site-specific questions. We’ve been extremely pleased with the support and feedback that helped us greatly in getting this job done in this short time.”

New radar-based vehicle detector

Eschenbach, August 16th 2011: ADEC Technologies today announced the release of a simple short to medium-range traffic detector. The Doppler radar-based detector stands out through its rather unique accessory. Markus Güntensperger, Product Manager at ADEC Technologies, comments “The commissioning interface of any detector often leads to a compromise between longevity and versatility. We felt that neither DIP switches nor additional connectors optimally serve the temporary nature of the commissioning task. A simple IR remote control device does.”

Besides the novel approach to set application specific parameters via IR remote, the device features a detection range up to 30 m (100 ft.) at an opening angle of 25 degrees. Output is provided via SPDT relays and a feed-back LEDs on the front. It can be powered from a wide range of supplies, accepting 5-60 VDC or 24 VAC.

Typical applications include green-phase requests at traffic lights (mobile and stationary), speed dependent detection of vehicles and auto-operation of doors and gates.

SWARCO iTravel System approved by Dutch NDW institute

Eschenbach, May 12th 2011: SWARCO iTravel traffic data acquisition system approved by the Dutch National Data Warehouse institute NDW.

Dutch Highway Authority Rijkswaterstaat is main participant within NDW. This approval is a major step for the innovative, solar-powered iTravel system that combines Bluetooth wireless technology, next generation PIR infrared traffic detectors and 3G wireless data transmission for accurate and reliable traffic data acquisition for the National Data Warehouse (NDW) operation. This project was won by the consortium Data4Traffic D4T participated by Van den Berg Infrastructuren B.V. – Swarco AG – VerkeersInformatieDienst B.V. and alone will encompass over 1000 measurement points.

“We are very pleased with the positive result of the tests and feel that the innovative and versatile iTravel system integrating our enhanced PIR detectors will find applications outside The Netherlands as well” comments Andreas Hartmann, Marketing Manager at ADEC Technologies.
Boris Ulrich, Head of Detection at Swarco confirms that “the cooperation with ADEC has been extremely productive, their specifically for Swarco enhanced TDC1-PIR detectors constitute a major step forward in low-power, high-accuracy traffic detection technology”.
