GEORGIA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION CONSIDERS COMARK SENSORS FOR OVHD EFFICIENT AND COST – EFFECTIVE WARNING SYSTEMS
Georgia Department of Transportation has carried out a study analyzing off-the shelf systems designed to detect the heights of vehicles to minimize collisions with roadway bridges. According to the research appointed by Georgia Department to the University of Civil Engineering and Construction, the report underlines the reliability, cost – effective and efficiency of RAM 20 of Comark’s sensors as warning systems for Overhead Clearance Detection.
Georgia Department of Transportation needs to minimize the number of collisions of tall vehicles against low-clearance bridges. The main problem is related to the constant outflow of resources for repair and traffic control. The project team identified, evaluated, and recommended existing systems that detect overheight vehicles and warn their drivers that they are approaching low-clearance bridges. Of course, the study was carried out in US, but can be extended overseas. In fact, the problem of minimizing collisions is an actual issue.
The need of a cost-effective, reliable, and efficient system is absolutely needed.
Therefore, Comark has developed RAM 20.
Comark has in fact just sold to Ireland nr. 22 RAM 20 (the same sensor recommended by US Department) that will be installed within 2021 in the Irish motorways.
