Why choose Navtech's ITS technology?

Navtech’s ITS technology is enhancing safety on highways by reducing the time it takes to detect an incident from 20 minutes down to typically 20 seconds.

It can detect when and where other technologies aren't able to with 360º, multi-lane highway coverage and consistent operation in all conditions. It works 24/7 in the rain, fog, snow and complete darkness, the very situations when it is needed most.

It delivers multiple capabilities from the same single radar. Proven solutions that will further advance safety and improve journeys for those using your roads, using the same road infrastructure including count and classify and wrong-way driver detection. It’s so much more than SVD.

ClearWay — Innovative ITS technology Making the World’s Roads Safer

By harnessing the power of the latest radar technology, we have developed the best available solution for incident detection in all weather and light conditions.

Using our ClearWay safety solution for highways, operators are alerted within 10 seconds when a vehicle stops or is detected driving in the wrong direction, significantly reducing the time taken to set warning signs and respond to incidents, especially in adverse conditions.

Navtech’s radar technology is unique. It offers 360°, wide-area coverage, across all lanes and on both sides of the highway. This means you can continuously monitor all activity on the road, with minimal infrastructure over long distances.

The data from the sensor can be used to deliver additional capabilities and information about your network, including our tried and tested applications such as count and classify, hard shoulder monitoring, queue detection and many more. We are already working with partners in the U.S. to bring a new level of road safety to key strategic roads following the release of our KTS radar with FCC certification.

 Beyond a Tunnel Vision: The second European conference on tunnel renovation
 
Friday 27th November 2020

Our ClearWay solution has been designed to minimise the potential for secondary impacts after an initial incident is identified. This is achieved by our system automatically detecting and reporting stopped vehicles, pedestrians and debris in seconds.

The situational awareness module, within our ClearWay solution, provides the exact position of vehicles and pedestrians in the tunnel, even in smoke and fire conditions, when you need it most. Real-time updates enable operators and fire services to make life-saving decisions quickly.

Watch our ClearWay - Situational Awareness video below to see our ClearWay solution in action.

About Beyond a Tunnel Vision

Beyond a tunnel vision is an international conference on tunnel renovation, focused on the joint challenges in the infrastructure network of Europe. The virtual event will discuss technology for tunnel renovations, diminish energy consumption and environmental impact as well as the digitalization of processes. The main topic of the event will be addressed in plenary sessions and interactive workshops.

Webinar Q&A

Questions answered by Phil Avery, Founder and Managing Director and Navtech Radar.

Can the radar be powered using a solar panel? What options are available for powering the radar unit?

At present, there is no solar powered option available for this radar however this can be a very useful addition to the unit, especially in locations that have an abundance of sunlight. Depending on the 3rd party involved they could provide this option, with the requirement of supporting the power requirements of the radar, which is 24 volts DC.

In your model of 10 sensors (found on slide) along the road in the UK - does the system track the vehicle from radar to radar as it travels the system or is this just showing activity in each 100 meter section but not interrelated to the vehicle itself in each section rather just the volume of traffic in each section. 

For the purposes of tracking live traffic, the system tracks on a per radar basis.

Therefore, the same track of a live vehicle will be maintained in the detection area of each radar. As the vehicle travels through and overlaps between detection areas of subsequent radars, a new track is created for the same vehicle.

Stopped vehicle however and other Automatic Incident Detection (AID) functions are largely independent of this and can be detected/reported dependent on customer needs. For example for stopped vehicles, we are able to report it’s exact location in terms of lat/long, x and y (in reference to our User Interface), or on a per section basis. The latter involves dividing the road or carriageway in our software into equal 100m sections, where the stopped vehicle can be reported on that basis. Again, this is largely customer driven.

What height is the radar mounted from the ground?

We generally say that our optimum radar performance comes when it is mounted 4.5-5.5m from the ground. This is not to say we cannot do any other height however.

If the bridge structure has no sufficient shoulder and maintenance activity requires lane closure to perform.  How long does the maintenance activity usually require?

There is no regular cleaning or other preventative maintenance required for the sensors so they would be quite well suited to these conditions.  Once every 5 years we need to perform a motor belt assembly change, that takes approximately 30-45 minutes each so with the set up and tear down of a lane closure you’re looking at a 4-6 hour lane closure to complete them for 2-4 sensors. 

We have a question pertaining to the radar performance in the high wind environment, such as at high elevation, long span bridges. Do you have any other references, where the radar was used in similar environment?

Yes, currently conducting trials on bridge structures, which are of course susceptible to high wind loads. 

There are two concerns with high wind environments – mechanically (need a bracket structure strong enough to withstand the design wind loads that might be encountered), and performance wise.

In relation to performance, we recommend that the system be designed as to the following constraint - torsional stiffness of the bracket so as to limit movement less than 0.5 degrees in any axis. For pole mounted radars, the constraint is to ensure that the wind loads do not cause more than 10mm of movement.

The radar data will not be affected by this, this is just to ensure optimum performance according to our standards. In the event of high winds, it may lead to a mismatch between our clutter floor image and our radar raw data, and hence leading to performance uncertainties.

Can you monitor both roadways and other areas surrounding the road both on land and water?

Yes we can do that, with our main concern being line of sight, and the scope of detection – i.e. what we are trying to detect. Therefore, when considering areas such as forests, line of sight can sometimes be an issue with surrounding trees. Also on water, we are able to do so, but it would require a good understanding of the specifications of detection.

Use cases could be in tunnel, areas with low cellular network coverage, could Satellite communication be an option?

As mentioned during the webinar, the radars generate high resolution radar images, which results in high volume data communications with the edge processing servers in the field. Therefore, we prefer to utilize fiber optic or ethernet communications between the sensors and the edge processing servers. The alarms generated by the edge processing servers can then be used by a 3rd party system to communicate with the outside world using a cellular network or satellite communication link.
