Iteris’ SmartCycle video-based bicycle detection system distinguishes bicycles from other vehicles in any road lane, says the company.
The information is sent to the traffic signal controller to extend the green-light time, allowing bicycles to safely cross the intersection before the light changes for vehicles to proceed.
Another new product is the Vantage Vector Hybrid sensor that provides detailed ‘dilemma zone’ detection. The dilemma zone is that moment in time when a vehicle is rapidly approaching an intersection but the driver is not sure if he should stop or proceed through because the traffic signal is amber. The Vantage Vector hybrid system regulates this through radar technology for advanced high-speed approaches.
