Taking advantage of countless inductive loops already installed throughout North America, Europe and around the world, Global Traffic Technologies (GTT) announced the general availability of its latest traffic sensing technology today. A key component of its traffic sensing suite of solutions, the Canoga™ 9004 Vehicle Detector can measure vehicle presence, count, class and speed, including bikes and motorcycles, all with a single loop. The addition of an LCD front panel and an Ethernet port, among many other features, brings excellent capability to traffic management, at a cost-effective price.
Field testing for the Canoga 9004 Vehicle Detector has been completed and it’s now available for sale. “Massport has a rich history in leveraging GTT Canoga-based technology for traffic counts at Logan Airport’s signalized intersections. With the new Canoga 9004, Massport looks forward to enhanced data and communications capabilities that add vehicle classification to our roadway monitoring program,” said Lourenco Dantas, AICP, EIT, Senior Transportation Planner for Massachusetts Port Authority.
With the addition of the LCD panel, the Canoga 9004 Vehicle Detector can easily be configured on-site; or for those agencies using a centralized management model, the Ethernet port enables configuration remotely, using GTT’s Central Management Software (CMS).
Bret Tredway, Traffic Signal Electronic Crew Chief, City of Bellevue, Washington commented, “One thing I really like about Canoga products is the quality and long-lasting durability. The new Canoga 9004 has worked flawlessly in our testing and we love the real time status/feedback over our IP communication system.”
“Although other technologies have been experimented with in recent years, the inductive loop is still the gold standard for accuracy and we’re finding many agencies are moving back to loops due to performance, cost-effectiveness and the ease of maintenance. With so many loops in use, we believe there’s a significant opportunity to leverage existing infrastructure for new purposes,” said Doug Roberts, CEO of GTT.
Headquartered in St. Paul, MN, GTT is the market leader in traffic management systems, having an installation base of over 70,000 intersections in over 3,000 cities worldwide. Any inquiries can be directed to:
