Traffic & Toll Gates are used to regulate or restrict the flow of traffic and in some cases collect fees. Sensing technology creates a layer of safety for these gates, preventing unwanted contact between the gate and vehicle. Laser-based sensors can effectively and precisely scan a vehicle and identify distinguishing characteristics (size, profile, axel count) to determine the make, model or type. This information can then be used for toll assessment, emergency access or other vehicle classifications that help streamline operations in high-traffic areas.
Raw data laser sensors can scan a vehicle and the information collected can be paired with data analysis software to determine defining characteristics, such as vehicle size, shape or axel count. This information can be used in applications such as advanced toll collection or vehicle identification.
