LED-Based Traffic Management Solution

Smarter, All-Weather Traffic Detection

The Leddar d-tec is a traffic sensor offering accurate stop bar and advanced detection. It’s the industry’s first and only optical detection and ranging product based on the time-of-flight of light principle. It compiles data thousands of times per second, procuring accurate and consistently reliable detection in all environmental conditions.  Providing lateral positioning in the field of view, it ensures that vehicles of all sizes, including bicycles and motorcycles, are accurately detected.

The second- generation d-tec traffic sensor detects at a distance of up to 250 feet, thus allowing traffic managers to perform advanced detection for dilemma zone requirements.


Innovative Leddar technology for smarter, more efficient traffic management

The Leddar d-tec emits non-visible light into the area of interest and measures the time taken for the light to reflect off of objects and return to the sensor. Thanks in part to the speed of light, it provides very accurate information as well as excellent lateral positioning of detected objects in the field of view—this enables the system to precisely detect objects of variable dimensions. In addition, since the acquisition information is compiled thousands of times per second, the Leddar d-tec is able to provide robust traffic detection in adverse weather and lighting conditions, 24 hours a day. 

The system also uses the flow direction the vehicles, thereby preventing false calls to traffic signal controllers. The result: accurate performance and smooth traffic operations around the clock.


Compatible with all current traffic control systems

The Leddar d-tec was designed to ensure fast and user-friendly installation. This non-intrusive solution can be mounted directly to current traffic infrastructure without the requirement of installing additional mounting poles, providing unmatched flexibility and ease of configuration. An integrated onboard image processor enables the remote alignment of the d-tec sensors. A value-added feature of the onboard image processor is the capability to transmit video images back to the Traffic Operations Center (TOC).


Resistant, durable housing

The d-tec is a rugged traffic detection system that is built to last! Made of robust, high-quality materials, its enclosure is waterproof and designed to withstand the worst adverse or extreme weather conditions. And thanks to its innovative design, the light and urban system integrates seamlessly with any type of infrastructure.
