Points the exact location of an incident within seconds of occurring
The biggest challenge of Highways Authorities is to maintain safety on an ever busier road network. In order to maximise traffic flow, they need to be notified as soon as incidents occur or traffic flow reaches threshold levels. This is so issues can be resolved and traffic routed as quickly as possible to keep traffic moving. The award-winning ClearWay solution deploys radar technology providing highly accurate incident detection, unaffected by changing weather and light conditions. ClearWay is a modular system, which can be adapted and customised to suit the individual needs of each customer. The system performs flawlessly all year round with a lower lifetime cost than traditional systems.
ClearWay has been adopted by leading Highways Authorities as the system of choice for increasing safety and throughput on roads. If you are looking for the best technology to provide the highest safety on your highways, whilst maximising your capacity, then ClearWay is the system for you.Technical Information
Smart Highways look to increase the road capacity without building new roads and without impacting safety. ClearWay is a key component of a Smart Highways safety solution, providing accurate and reliable vehicle tracking and automatic incident detection in all weather and lighting conditions. ClearWay automatically detects and alerts of incidents such as stopped vehicles, slow vehicles, accidents, wildlife in the area and debris on the hard shoulder. It increases road users’ safety by integrating smart signs and connected vehicles, delivering alerts directly to road users.
Due to the confined space and artificial environment, tunnel accidents are always serious and can often create secondary incidents.
ClearWay minimises the potential for secondary impacts after an initial incident is identified, as the system automatically detects and reports stopped vehicles, pedestrians and debris in seconds.
The Situational Awareness module within ClearWay 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.
Often, the lack of physical barriers to prevent a pedestrian entering a vehicle lane on a bridge is of great concern to road authorities. ClearWay monitors the whole length of the bridge acting as an early warning system for any pedestrians that may attempt to enter the restricted zone.
It accurately tracks the exact location of the pedestrians and vehicles in real-time and reports this information on an over-head map to operators within seconds, giving them maximum time to take action
. Immunity to vibration and operation in all weather and light conditions enable a system with a very low false alarm rate, giving operators confidence.
