The solution

Q-Free’s HI-TRAC UTC-P Axle Counter Classifier was selected to provide up-to-date, highly-accurate traffic information to assist with countrywide road project decision making. Supported in the region by an established local partner and distributor, Shibh Al-Jazira installed and commissioned the technology.

Q-Free’s low-maintenance, low-cost solar powered units were mounted on top of small housing pillars at more than 250 sites. Each location includes a GPRS-enabled, real-time communications to the Drakewell C2 web-based database platform.
