Company Profile AGD Systems Boasting over two decades of experience in designing and developing groundbreaking intelligent radar detection technology, AGD Systems is at the forefront of the next generation of bespoke solutions to meet the complex, ever-changing needs of the transport industry. Committed to continuous research and development, AGD is constantly designing and manufacturing new, innovative systems to capture critical event data for specific customer applications which include: Speed and red light enforcement AGD offers precise speed measurement to the exacting enforcement standards of international jurisdictions and provides accurate range measurements of vehicle targets in highways environments from roadside mounted positions within existing infrastructure. Its intelligent radar expertise can help increase traffic safety, even on the busiest routes. In highways environments, AGD can supply roadside or gantry-mounted intelligent radar solutions for accurate and effective speed enforcement. And with its unrivalled expertise in developing custom-designed antenna 66 ITS REVIEW Annual Review 2015 solutions for its global clients and partners, AGD can deliver bespoke systems to perform a wide range of specific tasks. Using the very latest planar antenna technology, its systems are suitable for range and speed and positional measurements in many different red light and speed enforcement applications. Highways AGD’s intelligent radar detection systems are deployed in multi-lane highways throughout the world to track multiple vehicle targets helping highways authorities monitor traffic flows and manage congestion. Quick and straightforward to install at the roadside, AGD’s radars reduce the need for disruptive lane closures for installation, repair or maintenance, delivering significant long-term cost savings. Measuring speed, range, traffic volumes, occupancy and vehicle classification in multiple lanes from existing fixed infrastructure and with wireless communications for remote monitoring, AGD radars offer complete flexibility of deployment. Specialised applications such as wrong way detection on entry and exit slip roads to highways are also available. AGD is also actively working with Highways England and international highways authorities to replace embedded inductive loop systems for traffic incident and low cost congestion detection (LCCD). Urban traffic control AGD has a proven track record helping road authorities monitor traffic levels and improve safety in urban and inter-urban areas with its highly effective and accurate vehicle and pedestrian detection systems. Over the past 20 years, its wide range of internationally installed applications have included: intersection control, congestion management, queue detection on the highway, stop-line detection, VMS speed warning signs, temporary traffic control, traffic monitoring and pedestrian detection and signals and strategic lighting control. More recently, AGD has developed intelligent radar solutions for remote inter-urban routes, where there is little or no power or communications infrastructure, but still a need to monitor traffic flow and detect incidents. Strategic integration The ease of integration of its intelligent radars into third party host systems makes AGD one of the world’s leading radar design and manufacturers, helping to provide sustainable, long-term solutions for highways agencies and road authorities that deliver. It has years of experience of working closely and collaboratively with some of the leading players in the ITS industry, including: Redflex, Imtech Traffic & Infra, and Highways England to develop bespoke intelligent radar detection solutions.
