Phil Lack with Laser Technology Australia set up a live
video feed of LTI’s TruSense T-series in action
Phil Lack, CEO of Laser Technology Australia, spearheaded a traffic management project working closely with VicRoads from Melbourne, Australia. Five dual traffic laser systems are mounted onto a gantry and looking straight down to cover the traffic flow for each lane. The TruSense T-series are scanning vehicles 24 hours a day and calculating precise vehicle speed, height, length, headway and occupancy data in real-time. Both Phil and a representative from VicRoads co-presented their project at LTI's dealer meeting with a live video feed of all the traffic data being collected. This same video feed was broadcasted live in LTI's Intertraffic stand, which ended up being the main attraction.

2014 Intertraffic Conference
This year the conference hosted 800 exhibitors from over 40 countries worldwide that show cased their latest products for the intelligent traffic management market. Show organizers estimated that over 27,000 people were in attendance and almost everyone there was a decision maker.
LTI brought a few new product offerings that spoke loudly to this particular target market. The PicoDigiCam® product and the TruSense® T-Series T100/T200 traffic sensors, were on display in LTI's stand at the exhibition.

LTI Australia's test project with VicRoads.
The T100/T200 were promoted with classification and speed monitoring software, allowing the traffic engineers in attendance to see the non-intrusive alternative for traffic sensors. This set-up garnered a lot of ‘buzz’ at the show and even made its way into the InterTraffic 2014 daily news, which was part of this year's convention.
Everyone at LTI is looking forward to the next Dealer meeting at their headquarters in Denver, Colorado, USA, in 2015 and then again, at the 2016 InterTraffic conference in Amsterdam, which has always proven to be a great opportunity to showcase new technology, share ideas, and connect with traffic management business professionals.
