Florida DOT certifies traffic detection solutions from FLIR Systems


Florida DOT, widely recognized as having one of the most, if not the most, stringent certification processes in the United States, has place several of FLIR’s new generation of smart sensors on its  approved products list (APL).

The sensors for traffic detection and data collection include the TrafiSense2, TrafiOne, Traficam x-stream2, and the TrafiSense2 Dual.

DOT testing and certification ensures new technologies are viable and acceptable solutions, which then allows adoption across city, county, and state applications. In many states, securing a place on the APL is required before state-wide or local municipality implementation.

Securing a place on the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) APL affords a level of trust that shows other existing or potential customers such as city councils or integrators, the level of quality these products offer.

Because of the high bar FDOT maintains for products to achieve APL certification, several other state DOTs recognize FDOT’s APL and use it as part of their acceptance process in addition to their own respective state standards.

In addition to Florida, FLIR is working with several other state DOTs to include its latest smart sensors on each state’s respective APLs, enabling wider adoption of this critical technology. Worldwide, FLIR has tens of thousands of smart sensors deployed in dozens of countries.
