A Polish company that designed and developed the detection system for cars and pedestrians has been operating since 2011 and has strong experience in creating highly specialized electronic equipment for city traffic engineering. The system which the company has developed combines two detection solutions into one highly effective and efficient system therefore it is called as integrated detection system.
Pedestrian detection - the pedestrian sensor button rely on capacitive sensor. The solution applied for cars detection uses magnetic sensors. The integrated system for detecting vehicles and pedestrians offers an innovative approach with respect to detection, combining detection of vehicles and pedestrians in a single comprehensive system.
Integrated detection system is composed of following units:
Central Processing Unit (CPU),
Vehicle detectors' extension card,
Pedestrian buttons' extension card,
Wireless base station – the signal repeater,
CAN (Controller Area Network) bus splitter.
Data from each individual unit is transferred through a bus or via a wireless link. Car detection units and pedestrian buttons share common robust protocol minimising the amount of cabling. Inputs / outputs from the system are fed into a controller either through simple on/off states or through Ethernet link, thus being suitable to any brand of controller. CPU – the Central Processing Unit is the heart of the detection system, which purpose is to gather data coming from all parts of the system. This unit allows to setup the system using provided PC software. It allows to attach up to eight extension cards to serve individual vehicle detectors and pedestrian buttons. WatchDog (WDT) provides a signal informing that all units are functioning correctly. If Ethernet module is used, the system will inform a user by e-mail in case any interruptions occur. Pedestrian buttons' extension card is used to gather data from pedestrian buttons that are mounted on the crossroad. To extend the system coverage area, the wireless base stations are used.
The company wants to expand its operation on foreign markets and therefore it is looking for distributors in Europe and beyond its borders. The advantage of a distributor would be an excellent knowledge of smart city solutions market, established contacts with city urban designers, institutions responsible for traffic engineering and city traffic authorities.
