In This Issue
Field Systems Engineers:
Welcome to the first issue of the Traffic Systems, Inc. Newsletter where our focus is to bring you relevant news on the latest traffic related technology being implemented by various agencies in the NY, NJ & CT area.
As always, our goal is to be brief, but high in value for the reader.
I hope you enjoy this issue and please let me know if there is anything you would like us to add in the next issue later this year.
The New Jersey Turnpike Authority (NJTA) has implemented Sensys Networks wireless In-Pavement sensors for their vehicle detection requirements. Several thousand sensors and hundreds of wireless access points (WAP) will be installed over the length of both the New Jersey Turnpike and the Garden State Parkway. The vehicle detection stations will primarily be co-located with new variable message signs.
The detection system consists of a wireless magnetometer that is embedded in a 4” inch core drilled hole at approximately 2 ½” deep. Typical installation time is approximately 5 minutes per sensor. Each sensor is spaced 20 feet apart and within 150 feet of the local sign gantry on which the WAP is mounted. The detection station provides extremely accurate vehicle data including volume, occupancy, and speed (VOS) as well as classification by length.
The VOS data is transported to the Traffic Management Center in Woodbridge over the NJTA broadband communication network where it is captured and archived by the Sensys Networks Archive Proxy and Statistics software (SNAPS) which will ultimately be integrated into the NJTA ATMS system.
To date Traffic Systems Inc., has delivered and worked with contractors to install over 65 WAP units and 750 sensors, with the remainder being installed throughout 2012 and 2013.
