A leading specialist in the design of automatic door and access control systems were looking for a partner to assist in the development of a new solution to keep passengers safe and warm inside two newly renovated bus stations located in Consett and Stanley, County Durham.
Controlling access to the individual bus departure bays was critical to prevent passengers from wandering into the path of moving vehicles, whilst also minimising unnecessary heat loss from the stations, reducing heating costs as well as keeping passengers safe, warm and comfortable inside.
Access to the bus departure bays needed to be controlled via door-mounted motion sensor systems, which are only activated when the presence of a bus has been detected in the respective bay. The project required a vehicle detection system that would seamlessly integrate with the motion sensor system and be able to trigger activation as a bus appeared in the bay.
Following simple tests to assure integration with the motion sensor system, the Clearview Intelligence M100BR system was selected and deployed at both bus stations. Quick and easy to install, the M100BR system will operate for up to 10 years without needing to replace the sensors.
In place of inductive loops, the M100BR system utilises a wide band micro-radar sensor located in each of the bus departure bays to detect the prolonged presence of a bus in the bay and relays this vehicle presence information back to the motion sensor control system for the door operation via wireless radio technology.
In using wireless technology the installation and daily operation did not require any unsightly street furniture or additional construction work that would tarnish the revitalised, smart appearance that the refurbished stations had now achieved. As a result of its successful trial, the installation now covers a total of 19 departure bays across two bus stations in County Durham and has been in live operation since just before Christmas 2013.
The project has been a great success and proved a fruitful integration between two entirely separate state-of-the-art technology systems.
The M100BR Bicycle Radar Detector has been designed to uniquely detect the presence of a bicycle within a defined zone and differentiate it from other forms of traffic. The M100BR works in conjunction with the M100 wireless vehicle detection system.
M100BR installation keeps bus station customers safe and warm in the North East of England.
Clearview Intelligence worked with Atkins and Cambridgshire County Council to design a lighting solution that provided cyclists and pedestrians with a clear delineation between the cycle path and the busway tracks along the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway.
Improving safety for pedestrians on railway crossings using pedeSOLAR level crossing system with integrated SolarLite solar powered active road studs to delineate the edges of the crossing.
Blue solar powered lighting studs were installed on the platform edge in Romford railway station in a trial to understand the effectiveness of using blue lighting to reduce incidents and anti-social behaviour at railway stations. The studs have the added benefit of enhancing the delineation of the platform edge.

The Union Canal is a 31.5 mile (50.7 km) canal in Scotland, from Lochrin Basin and the Leamington lift bridge in Fountainbridge, Edinburgh to Falkirk, where it meets the Forthand Clyde Canal.
With SolarLite Road Studs installed for the illumination of stretches on the M25 Motorway and also between the M2 and M20, Clearview Intelligence installed a quantity of 7,000 Road Studs between junctions 3, 4, 5 and 6 on the M40 Motorway providing ultrabright guidance to motorists around the clock.
Slough Borough Council and their traffic signal consultants Atkins were looking for a more cost effective solution when upgrading multiple traffic signalised junctions along the very busy main A4 dual carriageway
