Intellicone Overheight

MVIS and its partner Highway Resource Solutions’ pioneering Overheight Integrated Solution ensures that drivers of on-coming overheight vehicles and bridge workers are notified of an impending breach in an instant, enabling them to take relevant action.

An Intellicone Sentry Ultrasonic Sensor is positioned in advance of the bridge where work is being carried out to detect high sided vehicles. Upon detection the beam activates the display of a message on a variable message sign (VMS), also positioned in advance of the bridge, notifying the driver to find an alternative route. This corresponds with an (optional) audible Portable Site Alarm being triggered to alert the bridge workers (if relevant) giving them time to leave the bridge and find a position of safety.
