Drive-Through Vehicle Detection and Business Indication
Banner’s Adjustable Field R-Gage AFH (R-Gage AFH) is ideal for drive-through automation because it uses Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) radar to reliably detect moving or stationary vehicles regardless of environmental conditions. Unlike other sensing solutions, radar detection is immune to snow, fog, rain, and strong winds, ensuring outdoor sensing capabilities. The radar sensor can sense up to 3.5 meters and its rugged IP67 housing withstands harsh environments, protecting the sensor from extreme weather conditions.
In addition to vehicle detection, the R-Gage AFH also provides business indication. As vehicles approach the drive-through window, the R-GAGE AFH signals a light inside the restaurant’s work station to turn red, alerting workers to customers approaching the window. The sensor is also able to count the number of cars passing through each day.
The R-Gage’s vehicle detection, business indication, and count functions, help restaurants efficiently respond to drive-through customers, measure drive-through demand, and manage drive-through operations.
