The Radar Recorder represents a leap forward in the use of radar for accurate traffic data collection. Equipped with 2nd generation algorithms, the Radar Recorder accurately records up to two lanes of bi-directional traffic data without personnel ever having to go into the road.
There are no road tubes or loops required with this device - simply mount the unit at a convenient location, aim it at the road and you'll begin collecting highly accurate data in a matter of minutes. The unobtrusive nature of this device means you can covertly record data without drivers knowing and altering their driving habits.
When you are ready to review your data and produce reports, connect a computer to the unit and download your data using the TRAXPro Software.
The data can then be processed, and reports produced.

Safe and Easy Installation
The non-invasive radar sensing method allows you to easily install the Radar Recorder and begin collecting in just a matter of minutes. Since no tubes or loops are used, you never have to be in the road when installing the Radar Recorder. Simply mount the Radar Recorder to any convenient location and aim it toward the road.
Included with the Radar Recorder is an installation kit comprised of installation bracket and utility tools. This installation kit gives you everything you need to install the Radar Recorder in the field. Low cost spare mounting bracket kits are also available for purchase to simplify installation at locations you count frequently.
Covert 'Black Box' Recording
One of the advantages of the Radar Recorder is that it is all but invisible to drivers. Since there are no road tubes in the road, and no other obvious signs that data is being collected, you get unbiased data without drivers changing their driving habits and skewing the results.
Ideal for Portable or Permanent Station Use
The compact design of the Radar Recorder makes it easy to take it from one location to another, if you need to record data at multiple sites. However, it can also be used at permanent stations to provide continuous counting coverage throughout the year. By using the solar panel option, you can record data for months at a time, without having to replace and recharge batteries. The recorder's 4 MB internal memory can store weeks or months of data before needing to be downloaded.
Highly Accurate Data Collection
The Radar Recorder offers significant improvements over previous models of these types of data collectors. The most important of these is the 2nd generation processing algorithm, which provides highly accurate speed information. The speeds of recorded vehicles are accurate to +/- 1 Mph.
A sophisticated and powerful platoon splitting algorithm makes the Radar Recorder also an extremely accurate counting device. A properly installed Radar Recorder being used to record a busy two lane bi-directional road will accurately record more than 98 percent of vehicles for the near lane and more than 96 percent for the far lane. This makes the Radar Recorder a highly reliable tool for getting accurate data on both sides of a two-lane road with traffic volumes of up to approximately 12,000 vehicles.
Easy Data Interface & Retrieval
At any point while data is being collected, you can connect to a laptop (either directly or with Bluetooth wireless) and monitor the recording of vehicles using the TRAXPro software. TRAXPro can also be used to retrieve and process your data once you have completed your data collection.
Data from the Radar Recorder can be processed with our powerful TRAXPro software. TRAXPro has been designed specifically to be easy to use, while still providing powerful data analysis functions. The program allows you to create your own report formats and produce color graphs in 2 or 3 dimensions. Finished reports can also be saved in Acrobat PDF or Rich Text RTF format for easy electronic transfer. Sample Reports
