Traffic Data Classifier System

The Wanco Traffic Data Classifier System provides a safe method for analyzing traffic patterns. The data collector employs side-fire radar to measure vehicle speed and length. Completely non-intrusive, it uses no wires, loops or hoses. The classifier software is an analytic graphing application that makes charting and analyzing traffic data easy. With an optional modem, data can be retrieved remotely via the Internet.
