Intelligent traffic counting with the TAPS sensor

01/05/2021 | Emanuell Tomes

TAPS sensors record the basic data for a traffic count in flowing or static traffic with a 99 percent certainty. TAPS sensors operate completely self-sufficiently in terms of energy, i.e. they require neither a power connection nor a battery or accumulator. Sensors are easy to install in the roadway and replace the usual induction loops, which are costly to install and maintain. Data obtained from the TAPS sensors serves as the basis for intelligent traffic management by controlling traffic lights and signs or for an optimally functioning parking guidance system. The collected data is transmitted wirelessly to the data collection point - the gateway - and processed from there. Any necessary configuration changes or updates are carried out over-the-air (OTA), i.e. also wirelessly.
