Detection of trucks at risk of fire

Vehicles at risk of fire must be detected and diverted before they enter a tunnel. The VHD Vehicle Hot Spot Detector combines 3D data from LMS511 2D LiDAR sensors and temperature data from infrared cameras. This enables individual vehicle components (e.g., wheels) to be identified and checked against specific temperature limits without impacting on the flow of traffic.
