Overview

Making traffic routes more efficient, safer and environmentally friendly

Modern traffic management on road, rail and sea routes is geared towards safety, efficiency and a good environmental balance. Rugged sensor solutions provide reliable control and monitoring systems for transportation applications. With solutions from SICK, you rely on many years of experience indoors and outdoors. Laser measurement systems classify vehicles as part of the road toll system, automation light grids reliably detect people at train door systems, and dust measuring devices and gas analyzers measure pollutant concentrations in tunnel areas. The wide range of rugged and innovative products combined with a worldwide service and sales structure has made SICK a market and technology leader in many fields of data acquisition in traffic engineering.

Trends & news

Port of Tallinn – automated traffic management in a port

The Old City Harbor of Tallinn is one of the busiest on the Baltic Sea. To continue to be able to control the steadily increasing traffic volume and to improve the experience for passengers, the port operator Port of Tallinn commissioned the development of an automated traffic management system.

The platform screen doors on the Seoul Metro are monitored by 2D LiDAR sensors

The Seoul Metro forms the backbone of the city’s local public transport network. Every year the metro system in South Korea’s capital is used by millions of passengers. Almost all of its more than 300 stations are fitted with automated platform screen doors. The majority of these are monitored by 2D LiDAR sensors from SICK’s TiM351 product family.

Protection of the overhead line in the Gotthard Base Tunnel

After 17 years of construction, the Gotthard Base Tunnel finally opened to passenger and cargo traffic on 11 December 2016. Deployed as a sensor solution for protection of the overhead line, LMS511PRO laser scanners from SICK help ensure that the trains operate on schedule through the 57 km railway tunnel, the longest in the world.

Challenges

Detection

Reliable detection of vehicles in flowing, slowed or stationary traffic is required for progressive traffic planning and efficient traffic management. SICK provides appropriate solutions with high reliability and flexibility for all requirements.

Classification

During traffic data acquisition, vehicles must be classified at traffic counting stations according to regulations such as TLS 8+1 (Germany) or SWISS10 (Switzerland). Solutions from SICK are highly accurate, even in free-flowing traffic across multiple lanes with lane-changing.

Measurement

SICK is the market and technology leader for dimension measurement of trucks, 3D measurement of road surfaces and clearance profiles. Solutions from SICK provide accurate measurements and can be certified depending on the application. In addition, these solutions can also be used to determine vehicle speed.

Monitoring and controlling

Continuous monitoring of air quality and visibility in tunnels is absolutely required for traffic safety. Hazardous weather conditions, such as fog, must be detected on open roads. Solutions from SICK are able to detect the smallest particle and gas concentrations to reliably measure visibility in foggy conditions.

Safety

Significant damage to the infrastructure can occur when vehicles are too wide or too tall, or when objects protrude. Displaced cargo can lead to damages and accidents. SICK provides reliable and flexible solutions for increasing safety outdoors – even when type approval for single vehicles by the inspection authority responsible is required.

Services

Thanks to its extensive knowledge of sensor technology for transportation routes, SICK provides sound application consulting and customized service concepts from simple device instruction to detailed training to long-term maintenance contracts. The global presence of SICK ensures quick, efficient support on site.
