SmartSensor Matrix™ Detector

Wavetronix’s SmartSensor Matrix detector detects immobile or moving vehicles at an intersection. It solves the problems associated with magnetic detection loops: positioning errors, costly and frequent maintenance, damage to the roadway and lane closures during installation and maintenance operations.


The SmartSensor Matrix generates 16 separate radar beams in close proximity to create its 43-meter, 90-degree two-dimensional field of view. It detects each vehicle in its field of view, remembers its position and can predict future movements. In this way, it creates a two-dimensional view that can replace a video capture.

The Matrix provides constant performance levels regardless of weather conditions: rain, freezing rain, snow, wind, dust, fog or ambient light variations.

If the detector has been prewired, it can be installed and configured in less than an hour. Its configuration software is very easy to use and features auto-configuration capabilities that make it possible to configure the device in as little as 15 minutes. Its installation is highly flexible and very adaptable to needs and the intersection.

The SmartSensor Matrix can operate in uninterrupted mode for 10 years without recalibration, battery replacement or cleaning.
