podTrafficware's Valence Pod Wireless Vehicle Detection

The Valence Pod Detection System™ is Trafficware’s answer to a smart and flexible detection system. By using a wireless magnetic sensor embedded in the road, the system will accurately measure vehicle occupancy and detection.

Powered by an industry-leading D-cell lithium battery, the Pod will transmit real-time data autonomously for up to 10 years, providing a solution to a broad range of transportation needs. The Valence Pod Detection System™ is simple to install and easy to use, with three primary components: the Pod, Access Point & Antennas, and Base Station.

The system works by sensing the disturbances in the earth’s magnetic field that occur due to the presence of a car or motorcycle. There are algorithms that interpret this disruption to characterize it into meaningful and reliable data.

The Valence Pod Detection System™ was installed in the City of New Britain to resolve a conduit issue they were faced with at an existing intersection. This wireless system along with the reliability of the Pods has proven to be a valuable solution to the otherwise costly repair work to underground wiring.

inroadlanelightLaneLight In Road Warning Systems
Since 2000 LaneLight ITEM Ltd. has been saving lives with streetscape friendly LaneLight flashing crosswalks and grade crossing warning systems designed to catch the attention of distracted drivers.

Because LaneLights alert the driver without adding roadside clutter they are very effective in applications such as mid-block crosswalks, roundabouts, heritage areas, and school zones.  LaneLight IRWL systems are engineered to survive in the toughest of road conditions, are snow-plow safe, and come with a standard 5 year warranty.

Activated by the pedestrian, a LaneLight flashing crosswalk system shows a barrier of bright flashing lights directly in the driver's line of sight making them more effective than roadside systems such as beacons, RRFBs, or signs.

A LaneLight marker has a very low profile (less than 3mm above the road surface) and optionally it can be installed flush with the road surface in snowplow regions.  LaneLights have absolutely no plastic parts exposed to vehicle traffic and do not use any buried, inaccessible connectors.

The LaneLight In-Road Crosswalk System has been specificied to accomodate heavy pedestrian traffic at the Gateway Garage in the City of Stamford. The lighted crosswalk system will be installed at a crosswalk traversing six lanes of vehiclular traffic entering and exiting the parking garage informing motorists that pedestrians are actively in the crosswalk. Expected installation 2015.



City of Stamford - No Turn On Red

Issue: Taking Right Turns in No Turn on Red Intersections
Solution: Install illuminated No Turn on Red signs with Customized Flashing Red LEDs. Flashing LEDs tied into controller to flash with red indicator.

Traffic Cabinet Location Constraints, Hartford
Issue: Traffic Cabinet to be installed in the same vicinity as existing underground service. With little room to install multiple cabinets, NETs had the traffic cabinet base adapter extended beyond the traffic cabinet to also protect service entrance. Access panel was installed in the base over service entrance.

Video Detection in low light areas
Issue: Detection not picking up vehicles at locations where ambient light is too dark for the video  cameras.
Solution: Replace video cameras with thermal imaging cameras. Thermal cameras detect the heat signature given off by everything in their field of view. Because they see heat and not light, they don't get confused by sun glare, darkness, headlights, shadows, wet streets, snow and fog like video cameras. do.
