Navtech’s highway safety system, ClearWay, has been selected as the automatic incident detection (AID) technology for a major highway corridor in Maryland. It will provide multiple capabilities to improve journeys and advance safety on the US highway. Chosen due to its increased functionality against the AID specification, ClearWay will deliver Stopped Vehicle Detection, Automatic Incident Detection, Count and Classify, Slow Vehicle Detection and Wrong-way Driver Detection.
What’s different about Navtech’s ITS technology?
When you need a highway safety system that works in all weather conditions, ClearWay is the best technology available. It finds a stopped vehicle or wrong-way driver in seconds. The same system can provide other actionable data to deliver further improvements, such as vehicle count and classification, automatic incident detection, and hard shoulder monitioring — to name a few.
- Works in poor visibility when you need it most
- 360° coverage across long lengths of highway
- Multiple capabilities from a single system
ClearWay is deployed on highways and in tunnels from Sweden to Australia, New Zealand and America. Field-proven to be effective over large national schemes covering 200+ miles, with high detection and low false alarm rates, it delivers a level of operational performance that makes any road significantly safer and more efficient.
KTS radar for the US
