When asked why laser sensors technology, below is what Mr. Sandeep Pawar, Managing Director of Kent ITS, said about why the company opted for the laser senser over the light curtain on RGSL, Mumbai tollway.
With increasing number of vehicles detected and scanned during a particular interval of time, especially during rush hours. KENT had earlier used the light curtain for the required purposes, but they were not able to attain the desired efficiency especially during foul weather conditions like fog, rain, and dim lights during nights.
With the laser sensors from BEA, the number of vehicles detected during rush hours has been tripled compared to its earlier value, which helps them to reduce traffic congestion with high efficiency. As per the statics, while with the light curtains 322 vehicles have been processed between 7 PM -8 PM, whereas with the laser sensors installed the number of vehicles processed during the same duration was 966. Similarly, the 316 vehicles crossed between 9 PM -10 PM as compared to 153 with the previous system installed, giving the enhancement of 106%.
To conclude, laser sensors is a good replacement of light curtains because:
