Radar for Traffic Monitoring

Technology Service Corporation (TSC) investigated the technical feasibility of building a traffic monitoring
sensor based on a police speed radar. This sensor would provide estimated vehicle counts and speeds along
an extended stretch of remote roadway. TSC evaluated the visibility from two WSDOT towers that were
suggested as demonstration test sites. A radar system configuration was designed for future implementation
and required components were identified.
