Did you know that microwave sensors, also known as Radar, RF or Doppler sensors, detect walking or running pedestrians in indoor or outdoor environments? Microwave sensors generate an electromagnetic (RF) field creating an invisible volumetric detection zone.
the sensor emits waves which are then reflected back to the receiver. The receiver analyzes the waves that are reflected and detects moving objects.
One of the strengths of radar technology is its ability to measure the speed and distance of moving objects, regardless of the light or temperature conditions. Cyclists, pedestrians, cars or trucks, Icoms Detections radars detect with accuracy.
Icoms radars are reliable as they require no maintenance and are not influenced by ambient light or temperature. The radars are non-intrusive and can therefore be installed easily and safely. Icoms Detections has manufactured and supplied thousands of radars all over the world for more than 25 years.
Some applications for which Icoms radars are used:
Detection of motorised vehicles, traffic light control, queue detection
Traffic measurement: counting, speed measurement, classification
Speed alert: speed signs, sensors for VMS activation
Bicycle count on bicycle paths, dedicated traffic light control
Alert for motorists on bicycle crossing, activation of public lighting
Traffic light control: adaptive green for pedestrians
Activation of public lighting, Pedestrian crossing alert
