  • No work required on the road surface
  • Minimal operating and maintenance costs thanks to proven laser scanner technology
The VHD (Vehicle Hot Spot Detector) profiling system combines thermal imaging cameras and 2D LiDAR sensors to detect overheated vehicles. This makes it possible to stop vehicles before they enter critical road sections such as tunnels or ferry/train boarding areas. The VHD system measures the temperature and dimension of each vehicle, determines the vehicle class, and generates a 3D model. This allows individual vehicle parts, such as the wheels, exhaust pipe or cargo hold, to be automatically identified based on individual thresholds. The system operates under free-flow traffic conditions at highway speeds around the clock (24/7).
