Wavetronix SmartSensor Advance
SmartSensor™ Advance and SmartSensor™ Advance Extended Range
The Wavetronix SmartSensor™ Advance bridges the gap between safety and efficiency with one-of-akind SafeArrival™ technology. SafeArrival allows custom management of intersections based upon the estimated time of arrival (ETA), speed and range of vehicles approaching the stop bar.
Long-Range Advance Detection
SmartSensor Advance begins to detect vehicles up to 600 feet away from the stop bar, and the Extended Range sensor can detect semis and other high-profile vehicles at a range of 900 feet. These ranges are greater than most video detection systems and more effective than the single-zone detection offered by loops. By monitoring individual vehicles as they approach the intersection, SmartSensor Advance protects all vehicles in the dilemma zone and actually increases intersection efficiency.
Continuous Vehicle Tracking
SmartSensor Advance tracks the speed, range and estimated time of arrival at the stop bar (ETA) of each vehicle it detects. With accurate ETA detections, SmartSensor Advance can determine the time, location and size of gaps in flowing traffic. ETA is then used to adjust the physical location of gap detection for dynamic protection of high-speed vehicles as far back as 500 feet, creating more gap-out opportunities and preventing green extension for low speed vehicles.
SmartSensor Advance Extended Range boosts detection of high-profile vehicles out to 900 feet. Such advance detection allows the sensor to give signal priority to these high-profile vehicles, providing dilemma zone protection to all vehicles and reducing truck crashes, hazardous load spills and fatality rates; as well as truck emissions, start-up delays and truck corridor delivery times.
Flexible Mounting Options
The additional 300-foot range provided by SmartSensor Advance Extended Range increases the mounting options for the sensor, making it even easier to install. Overhead and straightforward mast arm installations are now even more effective, particularly on high-speed approaches.
A single SmartSensor Advance is like having a series of contiguous loops between its minimum and maximum detection ranges. These “virtual loops” are dynamic because they can be activated based on a vehicle’s speed, range and ETA. In other words, dynamic zones are adjusted for each unique vehicle, making intersections safer and more efficient. Loops can only detect vehicles at the moment they pass over the loop’s fixed location, so there are times when no vehicles are detected, even though vehicles may be present in the dilemma zone. With SmartSensor Advance, any one of a series of virtual loops can be selectively activated based on user-defined detection criteria.
SmartSensor Advance only places a call when user-defined ranges, speeds, ETAs or qualified counts are met. By using these parameters, SmartSensor Advance can provide superior protection against high-speed max-out. In contrast, loops only place calls based upon vehicle presence. When SmartSensor Advance detects a vehicle that meets the user-defined criteria, it sends a call to the controller, which then extends the green light.
