Classification products

The vehicle detection and classification products by Kapsch TrafficCom continuously measure the location, length, width and height of all vehicles passing through the detection zone of an enforcement station. Each vehicle is measured in the detection zone, creating a location of the vehicle overlapping the locations of transponders measured by the DSRC microwave communication subsystem. This subsystem also triggers the capture of registration images in the vehicle registration subsystem.


Kapsch TrafficCom offers the following types of vehicle detection and classification systems:

Laser-based vehicle detection and classification (LVDC): The system uses a patented arrangement of infrared laser scanners for the detection and classification of vehicles and is the optimal and most cost effective solution for enforcement stations in free-flow traffic conditions.

Vehicle detections and classification (VDC): The VDC system is based on a stereoscopic video-camera and provides unrivalled performance for vehicle enforcement in stop/start traffic conditions.

Automatic vehicle classification (AVC): The Automatic Vehicle Classification system is designed for manual single lane applications. The AVC classifies vehicles by determining the number of axles, indicating double wheels and vehicle height. The AVC uses a combination of magnetic induction and non-invasive infrared sensors.

Weigh-in-Motion (WiM): The Kapsch TrafficCom WiM system consists of a controller unit, sensors and a specially designed software. The product uses high precision Kistler Lineas® WiM sensors, which are installed into small pavement slots. The sensor signal is transformed and processed into wheel -based weight information. Kapsch WIM reliably determines and checks axle weights, gross weight and trailer weight. Additionally, the vehicles are classified according to the customer’s vehicle classification scheme.
