SKU: 100687-01 Category:


The standard classification scheme is FHWA 13 classes (or Scheme F), however, alternate user classification schemes can be provided for an extra fee.  Data includes volume, classification, lane, and speed.

iTHEIA detects three (3) lanes in the same direction or four (4) lanes (with two (2) lanes each) in the opposing direction.  Four lane applications with a larger median will require two (2) AI Classifiers one on each side in order to accommodate FHWA Scheme F.

A side view camera and electronics are installed at the roadside.  It is often possible to use an existing roadside pole to mount the camera.  Access to the system can be via cellular modem and/or by laptop computer at roadside.  Data is delivered by reporting software, a real-time data stream or in standard spreadsheet formats, and is verifiable through video and image review.
