SVS-1 Video Detection for Intersection Traffic Signal Control.

The latest addition to the SmarTek Systems’ family of non-embedded detector systems, this video detector lives up to its heritage of product quality and powerful processing in a small package for intersection signal control.

The SmarTek Systems SVS-1 delivers reliable stop line vehicle detection at an affordable price for back fit or new video detection installation. This means that a municipal department of transportation manager can replace older processing equipment in a cabinet while leaving existing cameras on the pole, saving thousands of dollars when upgrading to new equipment. A sophisticated algorithm lies behind the clean exterior of the rugged processor enclosure with small footprint.

This system allows the user to cconfigure up to 6 off-the-shelf video cameras with up to 30 zones each. Each zone provides directional detection, activation delay and extension. The system allows the user to map the zones via Boolean logic to on-board or external opto-isolated relays. The SVS-1 can monitor the state of six isolated logic inputs. The user can verify setup of the individually addressable processor channels via front panel selection and video monitor output via video monitor, RS-232 interface, or Ethernet Connection. Connect to TS-1, TS-2, and 170/2070 card files.

Non-Embedded SAS-1 Passive Acoustic Traffic Detector for Traffic Management and Intersection Control.

SmarTek Systems’ Acoustic Sensor -Version 1 (SAS-1) is a non-contact, passive acoustic, multi-lane highway vehicle detection. The SAS-1’s compact size and modest weight make installation easy for a single installer using a bucket truck on existing overhead or roadside structures such as light poles, sign bridges, and overpasses. Completely non-intrusive, it is an ideal replacement for failed loops or new construction projects requiring highway traffic information. The non-embedded sensor is designed to operate from a roadside position, eliminating lane closures for a typical installation. Design reliability for adverse highway environment minimizes or eliminates any periodic maintenance requirements.

As a passive sensor, SAS-1 requires very little power to operate. Coupled with a wireless “home run” option, this makes SAS-1 very suitable for autonomous installation and operation using small solar panels. The need for a wired “home run” cable, associated conduit, and installation labor is eliminated, making this an ideal vehicle detector for work zone monitoring or other remote applications.

The SAS-1 has several different interfaces depending on the communication link and the cabinet controller interface desired. The standard SAS-1output message provides traffic flow measurements of vehicle volume, lane occupancy, and average speed for each monitored zone (up to 5 zones or lanes) for a specified update period (1-Sec to 220 Sec) for ITS/Incident detection, freeway management, intersection advance or system detection from a side fire position. Traffic Managers depend on the SAS-1 for highway traffic flow monitoring, automated incident and congestion detection, ramp metering, work zone safety, and travel time predictions.

The true presence detection for intersections is the perfect complement to video detection 100 m ahead of the stop line. The SAS-1 relay option allows the device to be back fit into embedded loop-based traffic monitoring and intersection control systems using Type 2070/170, TS-1 or TS-2 standards. Several communications interface-, data storage-, and reporting options provide an excellent traffic monitoring and data collection system for real time monitoring, data collection and traffic planning using permanent or portable count sites.
