BIARRITZ, FRANCE—A major traffic route through Northeastern France will soon be monitored by SmartSensor HD. The Direction Interdépartementale des Routes Est has recently procured 12 SmartSensor HD units for installation at stations on a section of the A36 autoroute near Mulhouse. Officials with DIR EST say the purchase reflects the agency’s commitment to expand real-time, dynamic operations across its network.

The A36 is a toll motorway that connects the German border with Burgundy. The road also forms part of European Route E60. “SmartSensor HD will be used to monitor vehicle volumes and speeds and was chosen for its ease of use and quick installation,” says Jean-Marc Coutellier, president of Magsys, a respected ITS equipment supplier and the authorised Wavetronix channel partner in France. “The non-intrusive technology was also preferred for its easy maintenance and for the availability of its data.”

Magsys supplied the SmartSensor HD units for the project and is responsible for putting them into operation and training DIR EST maintenance personnel. Other companies are also participating in the project: Karrus offered their expertise on traffic management; Vinci performed the civil engineering work; and Sécurité Services Installation is installing the sensors and will make sure all of the equipment is properly connected.
