TAPS system successfully tested in the traffic area

02/11/2022 | Emanuell Tomes

Every day, several thousand vehicles pass through intersections controlled by traffic lights. In order to register vehicles with the traffic light systems, so-called induction loops are used, which recognise the vehicles. These are complex to install and can close roads for several weeks during the installation phase. With its TAPS sensors, LTS AG has now had the opportunity to prove in Bülach that its system works equivalently to the existing infrastructure. It should be noted that the installation time and costs are drastically reduced by the TAPS system and software data is generated that opens the door to intelligent traffic systems.

In order for the TAPS system to be able to assert itself in traffic, the canton of Zurich provided an access road in Bülach, namely the southern access road of the Schaffhauserstrasse in the direction of Schaffhausen. In this access road, TAPS sensors were drilled next to or into the existing loop detectors. Comparisons and characteristic values can be made from the comparison of the TAPS signals and the signals of the existing loop detectors.
