stephen clarkNavtech Radar, the world’s leading manufacturer of Radar based Automatic Incident Detection (AID) solutions for traffic management applications, will be exhibiting their ClearWay solution with the new CTS350- X radar at the 10th European ITS Congress. The company has teamed up with Imtech Traffic & Infra, specialists in delivering total solutions for the Traffic and infrastructure market at the Conference, which takes place in Helsinki, June 16 -19 2014.

Dr Stephen Clark, Technical Director of Navtech Radar explains, “Our Radar based AID solution has now been adopted as a de facto standard in many places. As demand for larger volumes of radars has gone up, we have invested heavily in the development of a new radar, which is lighter, smaller and easier to install and commission. Earlier this year, we announced that Navtech have entered a 4 year Framework contract with Trafikverket in Sweden – the country’s national transport administration – where CTS350-X, will be deployed for multilane running on strategic road stretches with no hard shoulder, throughout the country. The first stretch of road which will be equipped with the new CTS350-X ClearWay AID solution is a part of the E4 motorway, running from Stockholm to Arlanda International Airport.

ClearWay gives very low numbers of false alarms – typically one per 1 km per 24 hours. It is further widely used in geographical regions where inclement weather – rain, fog, snow, sand and dust is common. There simply are not other technologies which would be effective for this kind of application.”
