DeepBlue V-model

Project Details






The DeepBlue V-model by trafficnow – a unique small roadside sensor for Bluetooth, BLE and Wi-Fi tracking. The ideal maintenance-free, non-intrusive sensor for getting online travel time information and origin/destination information for improved infrastructure planning.

The small, sleek design allows quick mounting on poles or mast-arm, making it very suitable for an urban environment, or interurban roads. An auto-configured, easy-to-install side-fire Sensor that detects the wireless signals from vehicles; from hands free sets, smart phones and GPS systems.

The DeepBlue Sensor is easy to install, and has no detector zone setup
The all-in-one sensor mounts directly onto a pole or mast arm
The sensor operates with the DeepBlue Core and DeepBlue Core+ central software
The DeepBlue Core can be installed locally, or at the trafficnow Virtual Control Center
Easy integration with ATMS systems through XML and SOAP, REST web services

As of 2020 the DeepBlue Sensor models are all delivered with 3 radios as standard, the typical consumption, with modem, is 3.59W

Consumption of the internal modems may vary depending on network operator coverage
We work to optimize the consumption. The numbers may vary with the HW and firmware revisions. The numbers above correspond to HW 3.11, and firmware 950
