Data collector virtual loop
TrafiCam Collect-R is a cost-effective solution to collect traffic data, monitor traffic flow and emulate or simulate loops on highways and inter-urban roads.
TrafiCam Collect-R integrates both CMOS sensor and detector in a compact, stylish housing.
The design of this sensor ensures fast and easy above-ground installation without the need for intrusive adjustments.
User-friendly configuration software guarantees quick configuration.
TrafiCam Collect-R combines traffic flow monitoring, traffic data collection, loop emulation and simulation in one single sensor
TrafiCam Collect-R is an above-ground sensor providing a wide range of traffic data on up to four lanes.
Data traffic collection
TrafiCam Collect-R provides all relevant traffic data such as volume, speed, occupancy and classification on multiple lanes, day and night and in all weather conditions.
Depending on sensor positioning (overhead/side-fired) TrafiCam Collect-R can cover up to four lanes. Data is provided for each lane and each vehicle class.
Integrated data is stored in the sensor and can easily be transferred via an open protocol SDK (La Semaforica Management System) or an off-line download tool. Downloading this data to a PC can be done locally or remotely. This transmission of data can be done at predefined times or on command of the operator.
TrafiCam Collect-R installed on existing structures
TrafiCam Collect-R monitors traffic flow. Via the flow speed and the zone occupancy, the sensor automatically distinguishes between 5 levels of service: normal, dense, delayed, stop-and-go and congested.
Alarms can be generated on the outputs for each of these service levels, or can be transmitted to the Traffic Management System.
TrafiCam Collect-R can also be used to trigger third party systems such as flashing lights, barriers, CCD cameras and VMS panels when traffic flow exceeds a certain predefined level.
Loop simulation & loop emulation
TrafiCam Collect-R is also used to simulate or emulate single or double loops. Physical inductive loops are simply replaced by ‘virtual loops’. Vehicles are detected by the sensor when crossing these virtual loops. The outputs of the TrafiCam Collect-R can be connected to a controller board to ensure predefined actions, similar to the single and/or double loops.
Quick & easy configuration
TrafiCam Collect-R is an out-of-the-box product: install it, configure it and start analyzing traffic.
Configuration of the sensor happens via a portable computer or via amodem and a remote PC. It is quick and easy (‘click and drag’) and can be done on-site or remotely.
An image allows accurate positioning of the data zones (‘virtual loops’) as well as visual verification of the system outputs communicating to the traffic counter/controller.
Quick and easy configuration via user-friendly software.
Reliable detection 24/7
TrafiCam Collect-R uses a state-of-the-art CMOS camera and has an intelligent day and night detection algorithm on board for accurate and relevant data collection around the clock. Advanced filters suppress unwanted detection that may be caused by changing light conditions or the effects of extreme weather conditions.
