LINDON, UT—The state of Hawaii is in the process of replacing their existing SmartSensor 105 units with the SmartSensor HD. Like many states, Hawaii sees the benefits of utilizing a single detection technology for both planning and ITS applications, and the Hawaii Department of Transportation is taking steps to improve the level of cooperation between those two groups.

SmartSensor HD's ability to detect individual vehicle speeds is an important benefit for both planning and ITS. Per vehicle speeds are a critical part of Hawaii's freeway monitoring system; at the same time, each HD sensor will send data to the DOT via CDMA where it will be used for statistical analysis and reporting.
