METROTag™ is a transit signal priority system that provides priority for buses and other transit vehicles to pass through traffic signal controlled intersections with minimal delay to facilitate transit efficiency and improve service delivery. A highly accurate in-ground inductive loop system is utilized to achieve this result.
The Novax MetroTag™ Transponder provides the means to transfer a signal from a moving vehicle to an inductive loop imbedded in the roadway beneath the moving vehicle. Mounted to the under carriage of the front of the transit vehicle. The transmitter is powered by the vehicles 12-volt DC system. Using an onboard microprocessor the MetroTag™ transmits a continuous field which is 100% compatible for use with the existing ‘Streetcar Receiver Module’ (SRM) technology.
• Transit Priority (with standard Rectangular Road Loops).
• Compact (for Low Ride type Buses).
• Rugged (for Extreme Weather).
• Secure (against Reverse Voltage).
• Adaptable (for Data Transmission).
