PROVO, UT—A study published by the Oregon Department of Transportation has identified SmartSensor HD as a viable alternative to typical dual-loop detectors, citing the sensor's overall accuracy and its ability to provide per vehicle speeds. As a result of its performance, SmartSensor HD has been recommended as a suitable radar traffic sensor for Oregon DOT's ITS applications.

The study evaluated SmartSensor HD's ability to provide volume, speed, occupancy and classification data, and found that the sensor "detected traffic at a high degree of accuracy, well within its specifications." The study noted in particular HD's ability to detect and track rapid speed changes, saying, "the SmartSensor HD was able to provide accurate per vehicle speed data, leading to more accurate and responsive speed data within sampling periods."

Sensors were evaluated for two specific ITS projects demanding the use of non-intrusive detectors capable of providing real-time traffic measurements. Although not a product endorsement, the ODOT study is a strong recommendation for SmartSensor HD. Wavetronix is represented in Oregon by Advanced Traffic Products of Everett, WA.
