By FLIR Staff
FLIR Systems announced the FLIR TrafiOne, a traffic sensor developed specifically for accurate traffic detection utilizing the world’s most advanced low-cost thermal imaging technology.
The FLIR TrafiOne features the company’s Lepton microcamera module, a thermal sensor that can see in total darkness and through shadows and sun glare, and detect heat signatures of pedestrians, bicyclists, and vehicles. Using the TrafiOne, city traffic engineers have a smarter way to detect vehicles, bicycles, and pedestrians in urban environments.
The FLIR TrafiOne uses Wi-Fi tracking technology to capture detailed traffic flow data, including travel and route times along road segments. Using traffic flow information, the FLIR TrafiOne can also measure traffic delay times at intersections. Traffic engineers can access information collected by the FLIR TrafiOne through the cloud to obtain useful traffic insights to aid in their decision making.
The FLIR TrafiOne will be available in the second half of 2016. For more information, visit www.flir.com/traffic.
