Canoga™ Traffic Sensing Solution is the first to add speed, class and count to detection capabilities – in a single loop
Woodbury, MN —September 4, 2014 — GTT, designers of the leading-edge Canoga™ 9000 Series, introduces the first traffic sensing solution to add speed, class and count to detection capabilities in a single width, four-channel traffic management card. This revolutionary technology gives traffic engineers access to more information about vehicles on the nation’s roadways — with more consistency and accuracy.
“The Canoga™ 9000 Series sets a new standard for traffic sensing technology,” said Tim Hall, GTT’s Market Development Director. “With our innovative, single-loop technology, traffic engineers can use a single card to obtain information that traditionally requires two sets of cards and sensors. Our new technology provides more information with less guesswork, so engineers can make more accurate decisions that improve traffic flow and enhance safety.”
Traditional, four-channel cards are compatible with inductive loop systems, which allow field technicians to swap out legacy traffic management detection cards with a single card that adds additional functionality including, speed, class and count. Historically, two cards were needed to obtain the same information.
“We believe traffic engineers should be the first to know when and how traffic is changing in their community,” said Hall. “Now, capturing important vehicle information has never been more convenient.”
Canoga™ includes Ethernet so it can connect to GTT’s Central Management Software (CMS). Traffic engineers can use CMS to access key data, run customized reports, and receive maintenance alerts—all in real time, all from a remote location.
Canoga™ Anywhere, Any time
“Canoga™ offers more information so engineers can make better, faster decisions,” said Hall. “Engineers can use it to adjust timing for signalized intersections, to record state- and federal-mandated traffic counts, or just for a more accurate count of the number of vehicles on the road.”
The new Canoga™ cards are easily interchanged with sensors already installed. The cards can even be used to capture information about vehicles in parking lots, or to capture information about bicyclists in bike lanes.
Because it captures more information using fewer cards, GTT is confident that the new Canoga™ single-loop card will be used in even more applications, including as a replacement for standard inductive loop cards, in the near future.
