Econolite and Image Sensing Systems, Inc. (ISS) (NASDAQ:ISNS), today announced the introduction of Autoscope ® Duo™, a first in a new generation of hybrid sensor technologies. Autoscope Duo converges the robust capabilities of radar and video to provide the highest detection accuracy in all conditions with the lowest total cost of ownership.
Autoscope Duo, an all-in-one, high performing detection system for the transportation industry, represents another industry innovation from the long-standing Econolite-ISS partnership. “The Econolite-ISS collaboration on Autoscope Duo is another example of a joint-effort product breakthrough, addressing and providing transportation agencies with powerful ITS solutions and a high return on their investment,” said Mike Doyle, Econolite Group Chief Executive Officer. “Focusing on helping agencies reduce traffic congestion while increasing safety and mobility is Autoscope Duo’s number one target.”
Autoscope Duo has been field-tested for nearly a year and has proven to be a superior alternative to in-ground detection systems. Integrating radar and video detection algorithms expands the benefits of non-intrusive detection, and ensures years of low maintenance when compared to the expense of installing and maintaining inductive loop detectors. Autoscope Duo also represents a gateway to employing new Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) programs.
“ Duo is introduced with a background that includes years of innovative development driven by the voice of our customers. To address the concerns of transportation agencies, we converge radar and video computer enabled detection to provide the highest levels of accuracy in all traffic, lighting, weather, and pavement conditions,” said Image Sensing Systems, Inc. President and CEO Ken Aubrey.The Autoscope Duo Detection System uses intelligent decision logic to monitor the current operating conditions and to combine the best of radar with the best of video data, continuously—lane-by-lane and second-by-second. These two sensor technologies lead to significant performance improvements and provide the highest accuracy attainable for the demands of today’s most advanced intersection control requirements. Duo orders begin shipping early second quarter 2012.
