• The Icoms Detections multi-lane traffic light sensor has been chosen by Brussels Mobility for the management of a complex intersection on Boulevard Léopold III in Evere.
  • The two radars replace a total of ten inductive loops, without civil works.

Stopping traffic to put an inductive loop in the roadway is a costly operation in terms of time and energy. It also has a significant negative impact on mobility. Such an operation is however necessary for fitting the inductive loops traditionally used to manage traffic lights. In order to optimize installation, renovation and maintenance operations, Brussels Mobility has decided to regulate the majority of crossroads in the region using above-ground detectors.

For the renovation of the crossroads between Boulevard Léopold III and Avenue Jules Bordet in Evere, its choice fell on the TMB-134 launched in June 2020 by Icoms Detections. For each of the two directions of Boulevard Léopold III, a radar detects the traffic on the five traffic lanes. These two sensors therefore replace a total of ten intrusive sensors. They detect the tramway as well as vehicles on lanes with specific phases.

Placed about fifty meters from the stop-line, the sensors make it possible to manage stopped and moving vehicles on each of the lanes separately. The information from the sensors is fed back via a RS-485 link to a relay card placed in the Dynniq intersection controller.

Two TMB-134 radars replace 10 inductive loops on Boulevard Léopold III in Brussels

The two TMB-134 units were installed in less than 15 minutes by VSE (Eiffage Energie Systèmes), therefore make this crossroads agile and responsive without civil engineering.
