With the annual growth in the use of our road network showing no signs of slowing, it is imperative that safety, when carrying out road traffic surveys, is high on the agenda.
Temporary traffic surveys have always involved vast man power, which only increases further when road closures are required to install a set of pneumatic tubes. Not only does this cause disruption to road users, but the costs of that single traffic survey somewhat increase too.
High flowing roads and dual carriageway surveys can be carried out safely and efficiently with the use of the BlackCAT Radar. The product design allows for a swift one man 5 minute deployment and configuration, to minimise the time engineers are spending at the side of the road.
TagMaster UK have carried out extensive development to push the boundaries of Doppler radar technology to produce a non-invasive speed & length recorder with accuracy that will rival in-ground inductive loop technology.
To prove this concept we carried out in-depth testing and analysis of the BlackCAT Radar against an inductive loop site and wrote up the report.
Further to the benefits of not being required to work in the carriageway, the covert nature of the BlackCAT Radar will ensure that road users won’t change their behaviour as they pass through the site and the much dreaded ‘thud thud’ of cars travelling over pneumatic tubes in residential areas is no longer a concern.
With this technology the future of traffic surveys becomes safer and more efficient whilst most importantly expanding market potential. Don’t get caught using traditional techniques when new technology is available to be exploited.
