  • The CONNECT:ITS uses both video analytics and Microwave Vehicle Detection System data to detect and verify the presence of a wrong way vehicle. Configurable logic provides simple operation through the CONNECT:ITS web interface.
  • If both the video and MVDS agree on the presence of the wrong way vehicle, the warning system is automatically activated.
  • If only one of the video or MVDS determine the presence of the wrong way vehicle, the warning is sent to a user for confirmation before warning system activation.
