Sensor

The world's first completely energy self-sufficient ground sensor

The ground sensor of LTS AG was developed for different stakeholders. TAPS uses electromagnetic sensors to detect the presence of vehicles. Due to advanced and proprietary algorithms all sensors have a minimum detection level of 99%. Furthermore, the sensor is completely energy self-sufficient and does not depend on batteries or accumulators. The sensor can be used in the field of dynamic traffic management (replacement of induction loops) and intelligent parking management.

 

The TAPS sensor uses different sensor technologies to detect the object and transmits the received signal via a proprietary radio protocol to the TAPS gateway. After processing, the received data is forwarded in real-time via the desired interface to the customer-specific infrastructure (e.g. server or cloud).
