The ITVP-2 is an all-in-one microwave detector for traffic light management.  It replaces the approach loop and the presence loop at the foot of the fire.

It detects the movement AND presence of two-wheelers and cars

Your benefit? A reduction in costs on: 

  • the civil engineering budget
  • the security budget
  • the personal intervention budget

Operation and strengths

The ITVP2 detects vehicles approaching the stop line over a distance of 40 m.  Two relays are activated: one when a vehicle is in motion in a 40 m zone in front of the stop line, the other when a vehicle is in motion or stops in a (adjustable) 10 m zone by default in front of the stop line.

Relay 1 is maintained, within the time limit of forgetting, until the vehicle restarts.  If a vehicle does not start when the light turns green, the automatic control system is thus informed of a possible blockage of the intersection.

Use cases

Comparative tests conducted against induction loops show an accuracy of 95 to 98% on approach detection, contact maintenance during vehicle stopping and restart validation.

Several hundred units have been installed in Europe (Belgium, France, Finland, Switzerland, Germany, Poland, etc.), Quebec, South Africa, etc.
