Laser sensors for traffic control

Traffic information

Noptel laser sensors provide versatile alternatives to measure fast and reliably various information concerning the passing traffic flow. The acquired traffic information is delivered to the traffic control center or control unit of the system via serial or Ethernet communication or radio link.

Noptel laser sensors measure independently and automatically the required traffic information and the sensor operation is easily configured to collect and deliver required data. They are applicable for fixed and mobile systems, which collect traffic related information measuring both approaching and receding vehicles.

Typical provided information e.g.:

  • Vehicle speed
  • Vehicle count
  • Snow quantity
  • Average speed
  • Road occupancy
  • Congestion
  • Tailgating, safety distance
  • Over height vehicle warning
  • Queue detection and warning
  • Vehicle type, size, length, height
  • Vehicle profile and classification


The compact and small size Noptel laser sensor can be placed into the camera housing together with the camera pointing to the same direction.

However, thanks to the delayed camera triggering feature the Noptel laser sensor can be pointed further on the road than the camera, which captures then the image of the violating vehicle when required.
