Road Monitoring

Optimizing roadway operations

Optimizing the use of new and existing infrastructure is vital for road operators to manage the impact of rapidly increasing traffic volumes. Having access to accurate and timely information on the current traffic situation is critical to minimize congestion and reduce journey times. Our Traffic Monitoring Solution converts existing fiber-optic cable into an array of intelligent sensors which deliver timely and accurate traffic monitoring and incident detection information from the entire road.
