AGD 350 Traffic Control Radar withdrawn pending further development
AGD Systems has announced that plans to launch its new 350 Traffic Control Radar – a sophisticated multi-lane loop replacement radar with stationary detection – early in 2018 have been revised and the product has been withdrawn until further notice.
All AGD’s ITS product solutions undergo highly comprehensive internal verification and on-street validation testing before they are released into service. Initial testing of the 350 TCR required complex data-set verification and optimisation. The original intention was to release dual zone units with stationary detection at the stop line in Q1 2018, with secondary release of multi-zone units, capable of monitoring at least four zones with the use of expansion cards, scheduled for Q2 2018.
The extensive verification and validation testing of the product has identified inconsistent levels of performance for the initial stop line application. The fundamental technology deployed in the radar is not able to deliver a level of performance that meets AGD’s high standards and the expectations of the market.
AGD is currently in the early feasibility stage of looking at alternative technology to deliver the critical performance levels that customers require in their junction control applications. AGD has taken the decision to withdraw the product from the market until such time as it has arrived at a solution that will deliver the reliability and performance for which its solutions are renowned.
