The smart traffic and parking management system TAPS, based on the world’s first energy-autonomous ground sensor, enables dynamic detection of vehicles on the road and stationary detection in parking lots and car parks.

World‘s first completely energy self-sufficient ground sensor

By using the smart Traffic and Parking Management System TAPS, LTS AG offers the world’s first completely energy self-sufficient ground sensor that guarantees on the one hand the exact dynamic registration of vehicles on the road and on the other hand also registers the stationary objects on parking spaces and in car parks and thus contributes essentially to an intelligent traffic management in real time.

The associated innovative energy concept of the sensor guarantees a stable autonomous supply of energy and is very well protected. In this way the ground sensor is completely self-sufficient and does not have to rely on batteries or rechargeable batteries.

This high quality and low maintenance product with a V4A casing and safety glass resists all weather influences and offers reliable protection over a period of more than ten years. Its large range of application with almost any standard interface facilitates its integration into existing traffic systems - from Lora SigFox via LTE, Wifi and optical interfaces right up to copper lines.

Beyond that, the LTS AG sensor is easily and quickly installed in the ground within approximately 30 minutes. Only a quick bore is needed to insert the sensor in the centre of the lane to be monitored.

This means that roads need not be torn up on a large scale in the future. The cost-intensive installation of induction loops and cables as well as the high maintenance costs over the years will become a thing of the past.TAPS reduces the current high construction- and maintenance costs for the public domain by up to 50%.

Energy self-sufficient, low maintenance, cost-effective

The LTS AG sensor registers the object, sends the signal received to the LTS-TAPS-gateway via a proprietary radio protocol. The vehicle recording sensor calibrates itself with the associated gateway - comparable to standard household repeaters.

Following the processing, the received data is directly transmitted to the customer-specific infrastructure (e.g. server) via the desired interface. With the user-friendly LTS-software, the desired data is called up, displayed and evaluated in real time.

Distinctly lower initial costs, lower maintenance costs, autonomous energy supply of the sensor as well as the data transmission and evaluation in real time mean that maximum flexibility is obtained in all application areas (recording, evaluation, forecast). The development of the device right up to the overall software architecture was carried out in-house.
