Solutions

Introduction

We are design manufacturers. We can design new products to your specifications when you order products from us. You therefore get the benefit of a customised cost effective and unique product without having to spend large amounts on R&D. We employ many hardware and software design parts that are proven, in production in other products and already field tested.
Most of our existing hardware design parts are down to component level, which allow us a lot of flexibility to achieve design elegance in form, function and price whereas competitors tend to use ready-made modules. Using component level hardware parts reduces the risk of obsolescence and also significantly reduces the manufacturing cost as volume increases. In addition to these manufacturing benefits we also have the ability to employ innovative and unique low level control and optimisation that allow our products to mostly outperform competing products in all respects.

Tracking and Fleet

We offer an integrated state of the art Fleet solution

Collision Avoidance

Our driver monitoring and collision avoidance product is similar to those fitted currently to premium class sedan. It makes use of 3D tracking radar and is combined with an internal or external camera to provide driver assistance in various scenarios including

  • Pedestrian warning
  • Lane change warning
  • Lane departure warning
  • Following distance warning
  • Dangerous overtaking warning
  • Curve assist for entering corners and curves too fast
The system constantly calculates the Time to Impact (TTI) to all targets around the vehicle and parameters can be configured according to driver capability and vehicle parameters to prevent collisions. The system complies with the level-1 requirements for autonomous driving and driver assistance systems designed towards a zero automobile fatality rate.

Traffic Signal Priority

The Radar Vision Signal Priority system combines local intelligent bus priority, bus alignment, audio announcement and traffic detection in one unit. The on-board system complies with VDV-300 standard for commercial/passenger vehicles. The system caters for:

  • Public Transport vehicles
  • Life Safety emergency vehicles
  • Police vehicles
  • Disabled persons
  • School crossings
The TSP system resolves priority or importance from all these road users based on parameters they transmit as well as parameters defined for the intersection.
  • Passenger count
  • Route origin and destination
  • Priority level or Emergency type
  • Vehicle speed or Estimated Time of Arrival
  • Importance based on route and current controller plan/cycle time
The system is able to dynamically change the decision rules through our Remote Management System which can receive conditions from other SQL, SOAP, OPC, JSON, XML, XLS file or any raw TCP source. It can also receive current traffic controller status and apply priority accordingly. For example during peak traffic times or even congested times, the TSP receiver could prioritize certain emergency vehicles, but not public transport vehicles.

Long range radar

We offer long range radar sensors to detect intruders, poachers and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV). The radar systems are ideal for Keypoint security, police station, Farming and event monitoring. These high end sensors are able to detect vehicles over 15km and people over 10m away and can cover up to 360 degree angle. Using digital beam forming techniques the sensor is able to track multiple targets with high precision. As such very complex behavioural rules can be implemented to trigger alarms based on origin of threat and also behaviour of threat.

Short range radar

Radar Vision developed a new generation covert security radar system that uses the latest radar technology to detect intruders approaching key points from up to 80m away. At a typical human walking speed of 1.4m/s, this detector provide 60s warning before intruders reach buildings or key points. The benefit of radar is that it can be installed covertly and provide true distance and speed measurement of targets in all weather conditions without any light. The radar emit through the covert Electrical connection box.
The radar system can be configured to include and exclude any region such as a swimming pool or regions with regular traffic. The radar is installed unobtrusively and appears like a junction box if installed next to a floodlight. The radar reports the number of targets, their speed and distance to the programmable controller that can be configured to report the threat state to the cloud, provide localised alarms, control PTZ cameras to focus in on the threat or alert security staff. The radar antenna and controller inside the junction box transmit the intruder distance and signal properties to a central computer. The central computer display the alarm and introder location on a map. Rules can be configured based on time of day, distance, speed or origin to generate an alarm, send sms, turn on certain lights or control CCTV cameras.

Intelligent tracking

The Stuttgtart Radio Transponder is automotive grade device that is able to report location as well as other metrics to other Transponders or to Intelligent Controllers described below. The transponder is offered in ISM and licensed band versions. The transponder is offered in 10dBm, 20dBm and 30dBm versions to achieve radio range up to a few kilometers. Additional sensors/devices can be connected to the tranponder and will be relayed to the intelligent controller. The tranponder can also log data and download when near an intelligent controller. The transponder is able to upload configuration from the intelligent controller to on-board equipment and sensors. The transponder can also relay information from other transponders in forming an ad-hoc mesh network.

High resolution surveillance

We offer ultra high resolution cameras up to 200 megapixel. Our digital zoom capability is different than traditional digital zoom in that the full wide angle resolution is recorded whilst the operator zoom into a specific location. So during replay the operator is able to zoom in elsewhere. The camera store the full resolution images locally in a circular buffer. If an event occur, the operator can mark a certain buffer for transfer to the control centre.

Acoustic Shield

In collaboration with ADS we offer a VIRTUAL FENCE product that keeps intruders out without physical barriers by using a combination of radar or fibre sensors, intelligent control and acoustic devices. The non-lethal deterrence and crowd control systems achieve a pain threshold in under 10 seconds and have been proven effective against poachers, pirates and aggressive crowds.


An advanced solid-state radar automatically detects potential intruders at a distance and immediately activates the system's warning and deterrence capabilities. The system gains active psychological CONTROL of the situation BEFORE the perimeter is breached. The acoustic device initially broadcasts a clear intelligible warning message that is loud enough not just to surprise intruders, but in fact to scare them.If the intruders ignore such aggressive warnings and continue to approach, the system becomes exponentially louder by means of radar distance sensing. Even with top quality ear defenders, the sound becomes unbearable within a few steps. If the intruders still continue, then even before reaching a building or installation, a deterrent tone will be activated which is loud enough to achieve a pain threshold within a couple of seconds.
We have been designing large LED sign boards since 1996, for the past 20 years.Some of our products are currently deployed in South Africa, USA, UK, India and Australia. We were initially involved with the initial National Transportation for ITS Protocol (NTCIP) specification formulation by the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE)

Displays

We customise the boards according to your specific needs. We have numerous reference designs with software, protocols, LED controllers, etc ready for manufacturign. The design adjustment time could be as little as 2 weeks before production.

Speed Signs

We combine radar sensors with very simple LED panels to produce LED speed signs. This can be combined with a logging device to log traffic. Adding a low cost camera allow low cost informal speed management by body corporates or management at organisations


Vehicle mounted signs

Our bluetooth LED signs is strap or magnetic mount and is available in half size as in the image or full size. The LED panels can be populed front and backwards facing or either one depending on your requirements. The sign interfaces through bluetooth to mobile devices and this allow a mobile app to post messages. We have developed a sample Android app that post messages, adjust the brightness and control the scrolling. This is an ideal hardware kit for app developers to build apps that would

  • Change messages depending on the vehicle GPS location, greeting the company or location where it is
