New York City to Install Radar for Coordinated Traffic Control



New York City Cyber Security

November 18, 2009 By

New York City (NYC) has acquired mid-block radar detection units for some 200 intersections in four different boroughs as part of a NYC Transportation Department traffic coordination program using centralized computer control to improve traffic flow. The RTMS (Remote Traffic Microwave Sensor) G4 supplied by Imaging Sensing Systems Inc., detects and measures roadway traffic. According to the company Web site, the G4 is a small roadside pole-mounted radar, operating in the microwave band. It provides per-lane presence as well as volume, occupancy, speed and classification information for up to 12 user-defined detection zones, simultaneously. Mohamad Talas, deputy director of system engineering for the NYC Department of Transportation said, "Rigorous procedures were put in place to ensure the most applicable detector technology matching our deployment criteria was selected."
