Vehicle detection is ensured by a combination of microwave and ultrasonic wave
A microwave sensor can detect the presences of a vehicle based on FMCW (frequency-modulated continuous-wave)
Detection of objects other than a vehicle can be reduced
Built-in heater reduces snow on the sensor (automatically activates based on the outside air temperature)
Not affected by underground obstructions
Reduced installation time as access road for vehicle is not closed, as no civil engineering work is required
