Wrong way driver detection

Wrong-way Driver Detection

Wrong way driving on busy roads and highways can have catastrophic outcomes. If a wrong way driver is not detected and dealt with instantly, they will be endangering the lives of themselves and other road users.

ClearWay can be installed at roadside for wrong way driver detection. The radar will detect the vehicle and alert operators within less than 10 seconds. This provides emergency services with the maximum time to reach the driver and intervene. It also allows operators time to activate necessary warning signs.

Detection Conditions

  • Fog, snow and rain
  • Fire, smoke and hot gasses
  • Water and spray
  • All levels of light, from darkness to sun glare

How Does Wrong-way Driver Detection Work?

The configurable software can be easily modified to detect any vehicle breaking a rule by travelling in the wrong direction. If the rule is broken, an alarm will be generated and operators will be alerted to the event. ClearWay will provide the wrong-way driver's location, so emergency services can be sent to intervene. The vehicle can be tracked continuously so operators are aware of their location throughout. The low false alarm rate and the fast detection make ClearWay a reliable system, trusted by the operators and recommended by independent consultants.
