Video Camera Detectors
Video camera detectors utilizing new sensor technology are now at some Medicine Hat traffic intersections. They use digital image processing to detect a change in the traffic lane due to the presence of a vehicle.

Cameras will improve system reliability and traffic flow, reduce congestion, lower emissions and create safer roadways. They will replace the vehicle detection loops utilizing “metal detection” that are currently in place in the asphalt.
