ITS (UK) member AGD Systems will exhibit at this year’s ITS World Congress, 21-25 October, at Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre, showcasing two of its most successful product solutions at the event – the AGD 645 Pedestrian Detector, now with 10m x 3m detection zone, and the AGD 318 Traffic Control Radar.
The 26th Intelligent Transport Systems World Congress is themed ‘Smart Mobility, Empowering Cities’, with more than 300 exhibitors taking part and over 10,000 delegates expected.
The WiFi-enabled, IP-capable 645 Pedestrian Detector now has volumetric capability as part of the standard build, which allows monitoring of the level of pedestrian occupancy in the wait zone for safer, smarter pedestrian crossings. There is also new functionality for the non-intrusive, loop-replacing AGD 318 Traffic Control Radar, which now has the ability to detect stationary or queuing traffic. This, together with WiFi AGD Touch-setup technology and an enhanced user setup GUI, will facilitate a wide range of strategic applications.
AGD will also present its new 343 Highways Monitoring Radar at the show. Developed using the company’s experience and expertise in designing radars for highway speed enforcement, the AGD 343 is an easy-to-integrate traffic flow monitoring solution that provides real-time data on multi-lane highways.
The 343 can be mounted as close as 2m from inner edge of the inside lane of the carriageway and will still provide information for the lane immediately below the radar, as well as the lane on the farthest point of the carriageway – looking across both carriageways to detect vehicle travel in approaching and receding directions. It can be used almost anywhere for better-informed decision-making and optimised traffic flows and combines well with AGD’s enforcement solutions to offer a full product suite for UK smart motorways as well as international highways.
In a podcast ahead of the show, managing director of AGD Systems Pty in Australia, Stuart Douglas, said: “We are looking to forward to bringing our product range to the Asian market. Our highways monitoring radar will help improve the efficiency of their motorway systems, while our pedestrian detection solutions can help with the safety of vulnerable road users around their intersections, which is a major issue in the region.”
AGD Systems can be found on stand number B10 at ITS World Congress.
