A traffic counting system that measures volume, occupancy and speed in 12 separate lanes and within a distance of up to 76 metres is being introduced by the Department of Transport in Abu Dhabi.

One hundred and seventy five devices will be installed in the emirate.

The Dh7 million project is expected to be completed by the third quarter of this year.

The devices provide real time data which will be used for main roads planning, designing, operation and maintenance.

They will operate on solar energy and be connected with the traffic central system via wireless communication.
