Effective Operation –
without accidents or overloads
From streetlights to roads, bridges and tunnels to waterways – we all rely on a functioning infrastructure every day. Modern sensor technology keeps everything running, saving energy and preventing accidents or interruptions in operation. Infrastructures are critical to our economy and our everyday lives – so we should be equally critical when selecting the sensors to be used. Modern radar technology guarantees precision and functional reliability.
Not every corner needs to be completely lit up by streetlights all night long. Areas with fewer pedestrians in particular are lit for several hours per night, despite not needing to be at all. This results in unnecessary energy consumption and light pollution that disturbs and endangers insects.
Radar sensors from Symeo control the streetlighting, depending on whether a person is approaching or moving away from the light pole. The lighting is therefore switched on exactly where it is needed. No cameras need to be used in the process. This means the person detection does not cause privacy concerns and is therefore accepted immediately.
Our product recommendation
Will the vehicle fit through the tunnel? This issue must be resolved promptly, otherwise there is a risk of serious accidents and long interruptions to operations. However, automatic detection must not impede the flow of traffic. It must function with absolute reliability even in fog and driving snow or very heavy traffic.
Radar sensors from Symeo measure even fast passing vehicles reliably and precisely, so that drivers are warned in time if their vehicle will not fit through a tunnel or under bridge.
The structural integrity of road and railroad bridges must be continuously monitored. Performing a simple visual inspection is not sufficient for this. It needs extremely accurate data on how the structure behaves under load. This requires extremely accurate measurement technology that provides continuous and reliable data even under difficult environmental conditions.
Radar sensors from Symeo provide an accurate assessment of the condition of a bridge by analyzing its deflection under load. Even the smallest deformations are detected with pin-point precision. This allows damage to be detected before it becomes a safety issue.
Traffic management systems can only be controlled with precision if the traffic density is measured accurately. In the digital age, traffic lights should be switched according to demand.
Radar sensors from Symeo detect every vehicle and provide accurate traffic data in any weather. This also allows traffic lights to be switched to green when vehicles are approaching, cross traffic permitting.
Vehicle detection can also be used, for example, to control locks.
Continuous monitoring of the river level is critical in responding to flood situations quickly and correctly. Accurate measurement at short intervals is especially important during extreme weather events, as levels can rise very quickly. With radar technology, you’re on the safe side even in the pouring rain.
Radar sensors from Symeo measure the water level under bridges and report the current values to the situation center. In this way, hazardous situations can be detected at an early stage and at-risk residents can be warned.
