Houston Radar SpeedLane multi-lane traffic monitor, counter and classifier

Houston Radar SpeedLaneTM is a state of the art true dual beam, low power side-fire radar. It is designed to accurately detect lane, speed and class of individual vehicles and compute per lane volume, occupancy, gap, average speed, 85th percentile and headway parameters.

  • Patent pending true dual beam “speed trap” technology inherently provides accurate measurements without the need for in situ calibration.
  • World’s lowest power usage highly integrated multi-lane traffic measurement radar. At 0.85 Watts SpeedLane requires 10X less power than competing products.
  • FCC and CE listed for full 250MHz operation to suit variety of application requirements.
  • Mounts on the side of the road for non-intrusive traffic data collection and works in all weather and lighting conditions.
  • Simultaneously measures all vehicles in 8 user defined lanes.
  • All traffic measurements are on per-vehicle, per-lane basis, available in real-time and stored in device memory.
  • Lane-by-lane vehicle counts, length based class, average and 85th percentile speeds, occupancy, headway and gap measurements.
  • Companion Windows application provides intuitive GUI to set all configuration parameters, display real time plots of targets and view snapshots & streaming HD video.
  • Built-in long range Class I 2.1+EDR Bluetooth, RS232/RS485 serial ports and Ethernet.
  • 512 Mbytes of on-board storage plus μSD card expansion slot.
  • Built-in 1.3MP HD video camera for sighting makes setup a snap and allows convenient remote monitoring of traffic.
  • Comprehensive Houston Radar protocol, C and C# SDK.
  • Powerful SQL based query interface for historical data.
  • Optional cloud based server to aggregate data from multiple devices provides quick and seamless dashboard view.
  • Optional built-in UPS with rechargeable battery keeps unit running for over 24hrs on loss of external power.
  • Optional MPPT solar charger for optimal winter and cloudy day charging.
  • Optional internal 96Whr LiFePO4 battery for temporary or solar installations.
  • Optional penta band 3G GSM cellular modem for remote access.
  • Optional PoE (Power over Ethernet).
