Caiman I

WIDE BEAM STOP+MOTION RADAR DETECTOR

The Caiman I wide beam Stop+Motion radar detector is suited for lane discrimination in interurban areas over multiple lanes. It detects and tracks moving and stopped objects within the entire detection area delivering the following data: vehicle speed, length, net time gap, direction and classification.

Due to its forward firing position it offers a wide range of applications, detection points and mounting positions.

The Caiman I is available with two antennas suited for detection areas of 20 m up to 160 m.

FEATURES

  • Wide beam over multiple lanes
  • Stop+Motion function (moving and stopped objects)
  • Accurate vehicle speed measurementSingle vehicle data with peed, length, net time gap, direction and classification in interurban areas
  • 2 vehicle classes acc. to TLS (car-similar / truck-similar)*, 4 vehicle classes (car, truck, motorbike, other vehicles)
  • Multiple choice of detection points and mounting positions (e.g. mast arm, vertical pole or sign gantry)

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS

  • Traffic management and traffic data acquisition in interurban areas with detection of vehicle speed, counting and occupancy
  • Classification on up to 4 lanes
  • Special applications such as wrong way driver detection, traffic jam detection

STOP+MOTION FUNCTION

Due to its novel Stop+Motion function the Caiman M not only detects and tracks moving objects but also determines stopped objects. The sophisticated algorithm "remembers" static objects until they start moving again thus providing an additional presence detection.

DETECTION POINTS

For the most accurate classification we recommend the mounting in a sidefired position (right or left)

 

___________________________
* on the basis of German TLS-BASt, in Versions including PRIMOS IOC

  • Only one radar necessary for the detection
  • Simultaneous detection accross all lanes within the detection area
  • Detection within the entire detection area up to the detection threshold (20 m up to 160 m from mounting point) or only in selected parts
  • 100 % independent of time of the day and light conditions (bright sunlight, shadow, dawn, night)
