An overheight detection system monitors a vehicles height and gives drivers or Road Management Authorities advanced warning if the vehicle exceeds the maximum height for an approaching overhead structure. The system can help prevent high value assets such as bridges and tunnels from being struck by overheight vehicles. The solution saves time, money and also many unseen downstream effects that may impact business, insurance and the community in general. In most cases it only takes the prevention of one significant impact to pay for an entire overheight detection system making return on investment extremely fast.
At Intelligent Traffic Systems we can design, develop and install off the shelf and bespoke solutions for overheight vehicle detection. The system consists of a laser scanner detector combined with a control unit to trigger an electronic warning sign.
