FLIR’s Low-cost TrafiOne
Online — FLIR Systems announced the FLIR TrafiOne, a traffic sensor developed specifically for accurate traffic detection utilizing the world’s most advanced low-cost thermal imaging technology.
The FLIR TrafiOne features the company’s Lepton microcamera module, a thermal sensor that can see in total darkness and through shadows and sun glare, and detect heat signatures of pedestrians, bicyclists, and vehicles.
“Through the use of Lepton-based thermal sensors connected to a city’s traffic network, the FLIR TrafiOne will help traffic engineers accurately adapt traffic signal timing, reduce vehicle idling time, monitor traffic congestion and enhance driver safety in a broader range of environmental and lighting conditions,” said Andy Teich, president and CEO in a written statement.
According to a report in the Portland Business Journal.
The FLIR TrafiOne uses Wi-Fi tracking technology to capture detailed traffic flow data, including travel and route times along road segments.
Using the traffic flow information, the FLIR TrafiOne can also measure traffic delay times at intersections.
Traffic engineers can access information collected by the FLIR TrafiOne through the cloud to obtain useful traffic insights to aid in their decision making.
The FLIR TrafiOne will be available in the second half of 2016.
