SmartMicro Radar Detection

SmartMicro traffic sensors feature the most advanced 3D object tracking Radar technology available today. Specializing in products for intersection applications (stop bar and advance detection), road traffic management applications (counting and classification) and enforcement applications (speed and red light).

With more than five years of experience in the traffic sector, leading edge Radar technology and a constantly growing product portfolio Smartmicro is the perfect partner for traffic system providers and system integrators.

SmartMicro traffic Radar, Derived from automotive technology, Engineered and made in Germany.

Intersection Management
Where other radar competitors need two separate sensors for the two functions of stopbar and advanced detection, only Smartmicro can accomplish this with one traffic sensor, saving hardware cost and additional installation.

For the first time, lane specific (tracking) advance detection has become possible making adaptive control available for intersections. Advance detection plus sets the new standard in detection range, for mid-block detection and other adaptive solutions.

Moreover, because of its modular application software design, additional software modules can be added like ETA, wrong way detection, counting and statistics. Even such features as stopbar violation detection can be integrated.

Stopbar Detection
Smartmicro stopbar detectors are working today on thousands of intersections. They have a proven record of reliability and have shown (in various benchmark tests) to achieve the highest detection rates.
The applied radar technology is maintenance free and works in almost any weather conditions.

In many cases SmartMicro sensors can process up to six lanes simultaneously allowing one radar sensor to typically replace four loops, including an advanced queue of vehicles.

SmartMicro provides several different radar antenna models for almost any intersection, be it small or large, and is the only supplier to offer radar sensors to detect bicycles.

Stopbar and Advanced Detection
1 – A single radar for both stopbar and advance detection.
2 – Lane specific advance detection.

3 – Possibility to add the ETA, counting, traffic statistic and other applications.

The three statements above summarize the key differences to other advance detection products and is why Smartmicro traffic solutions outperforms the competitors.

Smartmicro radar sensor saves cost both in terms of hardware and installation by integrating many functions into one sensor.

SmartMicro represents the most universal radar detection technology on the market covering a wide field of view the sensor provides presence information at the stopbar and advanced detection zones.

In addition to presence detection the integrated Event Trigger Module can be used to conveniently handle dilemma zone protection, signal priority, signal phase extension and other concepts for modern actuated intersections.

Advanced Detection PLUS
Smartmicro advance detection PLUS technology is the latest development for intersection applications.
It performs advance detection up to 1000ft (for passenger car) and allows adaptive control for intersections because lane specific advance detection is possible.

Covering a wide field of view with typically 4 lanes the sensor provides presence information at advance zones. Approach, advance and system loops can effectively be replaced.

In addition to presence detection the integrated Event Trigger Module can be used to conveniently handle dilemma zone protection, signal priority, signal phase extension and other concepts for modern actuated intersections and represents the most universal detection technology on the market.

Complete Intersection Management
Most intersection installations today cover all four directional phases and require extended time in the field to configure. Using the Traffic Management Configurator (TMC) the coverage of the intersection’s detection zones can be planned, optimum mounting positions/locations and alignment angles can be determined in the lab.
The radar sensors can be preconfigured in the lab and using Smartmicro designed brackets, field installation and alignment become quick and easy. The software also allows access to the intersection (through a multi-sensor interface) providing access to the intersection via 4G/3G WiFi.

Additional Radar Applications
Beside the applications for intersections, traffic counting and enforcement, the versatile Smartmicro traffic Radar technology can be used for a number of additional applications.
With the data interface options: trigger signals, traffic statistic data, object lists and raw target lists, toll charging applications, weight-in-motion systems or even for variable message signs.
Radar sensors are also available for stand-alone solutions where sensing and application software is completely integrated and relay contacts are accessible. Alternatively options are always available to integrate the sensor into an OEM module/existing customer systems, Smartmicro engineering team supports all new ideas.
SmartMicro Traffic Management Interface Board
The Smartmicro TMIB (Traffic Management Interface Board) connects up to four UMRR Radar sensors (traffic detectors) to NEMA TS-1 or TS-2 cabinets (TMIB rack mount version); or to other traffic controllers (TMIB shelf mount version). A TMIB set consists of two cards, the TMIB_AB assembly is the control board plus the interface board. The second (B) board contains all power, surge and overvoltage protection for four sensors, as it is the typical case on an intersection. One TMIB set can replace up to 16 inductive loops (TS-1 usage) / up to 64 inductive loops (TS-2 SDLC usage), or up to four TS-2 BIU’s. The data of all four Radar sensors can be accessed conveniently through one single 100Base-TX Ethernet interface.

Traffic Management Configurator (TMC)
In order to ensure a quick and convenient setup and configuration of Smartmicro’s Traffic Management Radar the Traffic Management Configurator (TMC) is provided for set-up and management. The TMC guides the operator in an user-friendly step-by-step procedure through the alignment and setup process. All features of the sensor like the Statistics Module or the Event Trigger Module can be parameterized in advance, during and after installation. Visualization of multiple sensor data is embedded and can also be synchronized with video data (Add-on Feature). In addition to displaying real-time data the TMC provides tools to view and export statistic data and more.
