Monitoring Equipment

Monitoring software, when paired with other traffic devices such as changeable message signs and speed monitoring equipment, is used for smart work zones in order to improve safety and mobility in and around work zones. Providing the traveling public with real-time information allows a response to traffic conditions such as slowed or stopped traffic ahead. Alternative route information is oftentimes made available giving drivers a choice to avoid congestion. K&S Industries represents leading manufacturers in this cutting-edge technology which provides excellent solutions in order to mitigate traffic congestion for increased roadway user mobility.

barricades type 2

The CHIPS software is a patented internet-based system for monitoring desired events or conditions in a plurality of locations and providing corresponding warnings based on such monitored events or conditions; these events or conditions relate to a traffic monitoring system for use on highways to monitor changing traffic conditions and warn motorists of potential traffic problems ahead.

The ability to monitor events at multiple locations and provide immediate information, response or guidance to persons affected by such events is of great interest to traffic controllers. In a typical arrangement, a plurality of traffic sensors are deployed in the area to be monitored in communication with a centrally located computer(s). One or more motorist warning devices are also located at the appropriate pre-selected locations and are also in communication with the centrally located computer(s). The typical sensors gather speed, volume and occupancy through a designated section of the highway; however, CHIPS is not limited to these types of sensors. Bluetooth readers, satellite detection and cellular tracking can be incorporated. CCTV can also be included for visual confirmation of conditions.

Portable Traffic Signals

K&S Industries represents the leading industry manufacturer of both short-term and long-term portable traffic signals (PTS). Growing more popular in work zones, with the use of PTS, flaggers can be safely and efficiently removed from the work zone thereby eliminating their exposure. The PTS technology is convenient, in that much of it is solar-powered and wireless. It is quick to install and remove. There are significant differences in how sophisticated and versatile such systems can be and how complex or simple their programming may be. Please consult with a K&S Industries expert to fully understand your needs before you specify or choose a PTS system. For instance, you may need more simple equipment to handle a single lane closure. Or, you may need equipment to temporarily replace a complex intersection. Either way, you can rely on K&S Industries to offer quality equipment and the technology to go with it in order to get your job done, on-time and within budget.
