Vehicle Detection SolutionsWireless Magnetometer
A magnetometer detects large ferrous objects (such as cars) by measuring the change in the ambient magnetic field. A wireless magnetometer can be installed above or below grade and is suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
Vehicle Detection SolutionsWireless Ultrasonic Sensor
A wireless ultrasonic sensor is best suited for indoor vehicle detection applications. Using sound waves to detect objects, an ultrasonic sensor can be mounted directly onto the ceiling of a parking garage to identify the presence of a vehicle below.
Vehicle Detection SolutionsRadar Sensor
Radar sensors use Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) radar to detect moving or stationary targets, including trains, trucks and cargo in extreme weather conditions. Radar sensors are best suited for large predictable targets.
Vehicle Detection SolutionsOptical Sensor (Infrared)
An opposed mode optical sensor uses the interruption of a light beam between an emitter and a receiver to detect vehicles. Optical sensors are usually better suited for indoor applications and require mounting for both emitter and receiver.
Vehicle Detection SolutionsMeasuring Light Grid
Measuring light screens are often used for vehicle detection to start and stop a transaction (such as paying a toll). A measuring light grid provides fast profiling of moving vehicles, accurately detecting vehicles regardless of their speed.

Vehicle detection at loading docks is complicated because sensing solutions are exposed to the elements and need to recognize a wide variety of surfaces. Rugged ultrasonic sensors work well to accurately detect the surfaces of delivery vehicles regardless of the material. Pairing with bright LED indication creates unmistakable operator guidance.
