Move OVA Loops…AGD to showcase 318 at Scotland Road Expo 2016!

AGD Systems will be showcasing its industry leading ‘318’ Intelligent Detection Radar System, as an alternative method of advanced vehicle detection for MOVA sites, at Scotland’s Road Expo 2016.

Taking place on 2nd and 3rd of November at Edinburgh’s Royal Hyland Centre, the Road Expo attracts key stakeholders from across the Scottish road network. Exhibiting on Stand G12, AGD will be showcasing the recent trials of its ‘318’ radar detector, with in-built AGD Technology, at a number of MOVA sites across the UK.

To date, trials have proven that the 318 provides accurate, critical event data for supporting the MOVA algorithm and increasing traffic flow – enabling a reliable and precise input of occupancy data for both ‘In’ and ‘X’ detection points up to 150m from the stop line.

Compared to conventional inductive loop detection, customers have confirmed that the 318 offers a real non-intrusive and cost-effective solution that eliminates the need to cut into the road surface, thus reducing the risk of potential pockets that wear from traffic and the weather.

By using AGD technology, installers benefit from not requiring expensive ducting activity away from the stop line to the ‘In’ and ‘X’ detection points – which has traditionally prevented some sites benefiting from MOVA.

Dan Preece, Executive Engineer at Integrated Traffic Services Limited, has created several successful schemes using AGD’s 318, and on discussing the benefits of using RADAR detection for MOVA, he said: “It is an exciting time in the industry as new technology is coming through fast, not least of which is the AGD 318 radar. The Dual output version of this radar is going to make a big difference to the amount of schemes that are able to be converted to MOVA operation, particularly in the urban/semi urban environment where traditionally cost, services and available ducting has made the upgrade prohibitively expensive or simply not practical.”

“A product like the 318 can grow alongside MOVA development, potentially offering much more than on/off gate output which will enhance MOVA’s ability to act intelligently to the behaviour, type and level of demand from all types of vehicles.”

The ‘318’ will be a focal point of AGD’s stand at Road Expo 2016, together with its range of ground breaking intelligent radar detection systems.
