How to Choose a Vehicle Detection Technology

The ability to reliably detect vehicles offers significant advantages for asset management, resource allocation, site safety and traffic control. 

Factors to Consider

Identifying the right technology for your vehicle detection application can be challenging, and many factors must be taken into consideration, including task, size of target, sensing range, sensor mounting, and whether the application is primarily indoor or outdoor.

Combine Multiple Solutions

Applications that require the highest possible accuracy should consider implementing redundant technology.  Utilizing two sensor technologies simultaneously can help reduce risk of error in case one sensing method fails.  We recommend discussing your specific application needs with a professional.
