AGD to take new stop-line detector to the JCT Symposium

Home   »   News   »   AGD to take new stop-line detector to the JCT Symposium

Visitors to an upcoming industry event will have the chance to see AGD’s latest product – a multi-lane stop-line detector.

Early AGD650 units are currently being deployed across city and local authority sites after initial testing showed an impressive precision accuracy rate – something which attendees at next week’s JCT Symposium will be able to find out more about.

The event takes place on Wednesday 14th and Thursday 15th September at Nottingham Trent University, bringing together traffic signal practitioners and manufacturers.

It’s been running since 1996, with the MOVA User Group taking place immediately before at the same venue. The two days are packed full of everything from networking opportunities and social events to conference style papers on topics including use of 5G and environmental credentials.

We’re proud to not only be attending, but also co-sponsoring the video element of the event.

The team – including Commercial Director Ian Hind and Commercial Manager Greg Baker – will be taking along a selection of our pedestrian suite and traffic detection products – including, of course, the 650.

Now just three months away from full-volume production, the AGD650 is the result of our determination to improve detection accuracy at red lights, particularly of bicycles and e-scooters. The final result (after extensive research, development and testing) is a smart, optical, dynamic environment detector which improves the efficiency of intersections and junctions by delivering robust vehicle data at the stop-line of multi-lane approaches.

The 650 has inbuilt artificial intelligence and makes use of a new neural processing platform and sophisticated algorithms to provide ultra-reliable real-time detection and automated decision making on vehicle types. Both stationary and moving targets are detected using high-grade optics and deep-learning image recognition.
