DESCRIPTION

The LSR2001-DOUBLE sensor uses two lasers scanners to detect vehicles. Compared to other technologies, this sensor is able to detect vehicles with high precision and resolution. LSR2001-DOUBLE is able to accurately measure vehicle profiles and is therefore the ideal tool for applications where precise vehicle classification is required. It is able to distinguish more than 20 classes of vehicles including:

· Motorcycles

· Cars

· Vans

· Trucks

· Lorries

· Articulated lorries

· Buses

The LSR2001-DOUBLE is composed by a master and a slave sensor. The master, which contains the CPU, gets the data from the slave and combines it with his own data. . The master sensor makes vertical scans and is mainly encharged of counting, classification and triggering. The slave is rotated to detect the vehicle at a certain distance from the master and is used, in combination with the master, to measure speed and length. The orientation of the slave detector depends on the installation height of the detector.

Being a laser scanner, the detector can measure the vehicle’s profile and their presence. For this reasons it is very precise on classifying and counting vehicles even in “heavy” traffic conditions, stop & go and in queue presence.

LSR 2001-DOUBLE provides the following data:

· Counting

· Speed

· Length

· Height

· Class

· Traffic state

INSTALLATION

The LSR2001-DOUBLE can be installed on the side of the road or at a minimum height of 5 meters to detect one lane and 8-10 meters to detect 2 lanes.

It can also be installed in a gantry, one per lane, for high accuracy in a multilane road.

APPLICATIONS

· Toll

· Traffic monitoring (ITS)

· Vehicle profiling

· Maximum height relief

· Vehicle classification

· Trigger for cameras

 

HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE

The detector has been designed both on the mechanical and firmware aspect to work outdoor with harsh weather conditions. The firmware has inside some filters for the rain and the snow.

The scanner optics are designed in a different way than other producers do, and are made of two different areas for  sending and receiving the laser beam making it resistant to dust, water and other elements.

The detector has a CPU that makes the analysis of the signals received by the scanner to extract all the parameters of the vehicle.The communication with the sensor can be done trough an Ethernet or RS485 line.

The configuration of the sensor can be done through easy to use web pages. On these pages it is possible to set the background, check the scans, set the lanes and view the log of detected transits.
