Vehicle Detection System From Signal-Tech

How does the Vehicle Detection System work?

When a vehicle passes our specially designed sensor’s beam, it sends an electronic relay to the Vehicle Detection System’s Control Module. When the Control Module receives the sensor’s electronic signal, it activates all the components of the Vehicle Detection System for a timespan of 1-99 seconds as programmed by the user.

While illuminated, the direct-view LED sign — which is readable in direct sunlight — alerts pedestrians of the danger of approaching traffic outside of their line of sight. The sign should be installed in a location that gives pedestrians adequate time to see the illuminated sign, read its warning message, stop, see the approaching vehicle, and avoid a devastating collision.

The Vehicle Detection System can be equipped with auxiliary visual alerts.

In addition to illuminated signage, the Vehicle Detection System can be equipped with auxiliary visual alerts, such as beacon strobes or flashing lights, that are activated and kept illuminated by the Control Module. These added visual cues help garner more attention than just the sign by itself.

Finally, Audio Accessories can be added to the Vehicle Detection System to bolster its ability to warn pedestrians of approaching vehicles. Audio accessories are also activated and kept audible by the Control Module and maximize the system’s ability to capture pedestrians’ attention. Signal-Tech’s Vehicle Detection System is a smart, proactive way to protect pedestrians while safeguarding your organization from liability.

What is the Vehicle Detection System?

The Vehicle Detection System is a simple solution that promotes pedestrian safety and deters vehicle-pedestrian accidents by activating a sign to alert pedestrians of an approaching vehicle. It is made of up to five unique components:

Finish Your System

In addition to the system’s two primary components (Sensor and Control Module), the system is made complete with the addition of three optional pieces: Signage, Auxiliary Visual Alerts, and Audio Accessories. Installing these add-on components will maximize the system’s ability to protect both pedestrians and motorists.
