Vidar Axle Camera
for Vehicle Axle Counting

Image-based axle counting with a single, intelligent camera


Vidar Axle Count is a compact yet robust camera of the Vidar industrial camera family designed for axle identification and counting in road tolling, ferry access control, logistics, and other operations. The camera provides side-scan type reconstructed images with metadata containing axle count and vehicle category, which can be further processed by any kind of traffic-related business intelligence.

The camera handles challenging conditions such as darkness and inclement weather with ease. Detection of vehicles is highly accurate with Vidar Axle Count thanks to the industry-first built-in laser trigger technology complemented by an image-based vehicle detection algorithm. You can optionally connect the camera to external triggers.

Highlighted Features
