Q.  How is Detection of a vehicle made?

A.  Detection is achieved using dual channel Doppler Radar that can detect movement and vehicle direction up to 500′.  Additionally, a Detector may be programmed to treat either approaching vehicles or receding vehicles as Wrong Way.

 

Q.  Can Detectors link up to each other automatically?

A.  All Detectors are factory programmed to link up automatically in the field.  However, they are also field configurable as well.  A separate Bluetooth port allows for local connections for Data Collection, Configuration, Firmware Updates and Diagnostics.

 

Q.  Are Detectors capable of monitoring and reporting system Health Checks?

A.  The Detectors do a period self-check that includes the wireless mesh-net communications bridge and report the status of ALL members through the wireless mesh-net network, by Bluetooth to a local device or by cellular data modem to a remote computer.

 

Q.  Are Cameras available?

A.  In some installations, a zone one or zone three detector may be fitted with a high resolution camera system and a 4G / LTE cellular modem.  Camera equipped devices are programmed to take a sequence of three photos based on a programmed set of circumstances.

 

Q.  Is there a limit as to how many Detectors can be used on one Wrong Way Alert System?

A.  It is possible to create an installation using hundreds of Detectors or Sign Enhancement Bars all linked in the same network and operated by rules that cause them to be slaved only to certain other detectors.  Because of this configurability, the system lends itself to reliable coverage of unique situations.

 

Q.  Are any of the Wrong Way Alert Systems currently installed?

A.  Yes we currently have Wrong Way Alert installed in Arizona, Idaho, Colorado with numerous systems installed in Texas.
