Navtech Radar showcases CTS350 Automatic Incident Detection Radar at TRAFFEX
Navtech Radar, leading manufacturer of radar-based Automatic Incident Detection (AID) solutions for traffic management applications is teaming up with Business Partner P Ducker Systems (PDS) to showcase their unique CTS350 radar at the TRAFFEX Show at the NEC in Birmingham, April 21-23 2015.
The CTS350 is small, lighter than previous models, and easy to install and commission into service. The new CTS product launched in 2014, followed swiftly after Navtech’s announcement of the company securing a 4 year Framework contract with Trafikverket in Sweden – the country’s national transport administration. Navtech Radar’s AID solution, using CTS350, is to be deployed for all lanes running on strategic road stretches with no hard shoulder, throughout the country.
Ryan Hood, Sales & Marketing Director of Navtech Radar explains, “Our Radar based AID solution has now been adopted as a de facto standard in many places. Several of the AID projects our technology is implemented on include all lanes running on strategic roads, with no hard shoulder, so fast and accurate detection is a must. ClearWay gives very low numbers of false alarms – typically one per 1 km per 24 hours. It is further widely used in geographical regions where inclement weather – rain, fog, snow, sand and dust is common. There simply are not other technologies which would be effective for this kind of application.”
Some of the most recent projects completed using Navtech’s ClearWay AID solution includes several stretches on strategic roads in Sweden, Mastrafjord and Byfjord subsea tunnels in Norway, and Bolte Bridge in Melbourne, Australia. Several trials are currently ongoing both in the UK and abroad for all lane running and tunnel AID solutions.
