Digital Traffic Twins by 61 GHz Radar
Monitoring of Railway Crossings
Upon train approach activation, the Radar will provide a warning message when obstacles are still the monitoring zone, to allow early train operator warning at a safe distance.
The KY-RAY 3D.02.04 Radar sensor does not have any moving parts and is completely maintenance-free.
Traffic Control at Intersections
KY-RAY 3D.02.04 Radar sensors, in combination with cameras, can optimize the traffic analysis and control.
The Radar detects all road users (truck, cars, motorcycles, cyclists and pedestrians) in complete darkness, with wet, reflecting street surfaces, direct sunlight or snowy conditions - situations, where cameras typically have their technical limitations.
- Detection, qualification and counting of road users
- Early information about dangerous situations (road blocks, accidents, vulnerable road users in close proximity)
- Acquisition of traffic density (dynamic green light phase skipping)
Technically, Radar does not recognize any number plates or faces - it is absolutely safe regarding the protection of personal data.
Safety Monitoring of Road Shoulders
The future use of autonomous vehicles on highways or inner city roads will be supported by the KY-RAY 3D.02.04 traffic Radar, in order to detect environmental situations beyond reach of the sensors onboard the autonomous vehicles. This enhancement of the environmental perception will be transmitted over low latency 5G networks and allows autonomous traffic participants to make better driving decisions.
