Data Collecting Station - DCS

The Data Collecting Station (DCS) collects and processes data provided by the Sensefields wireless magnetic sensors in order to compute vehicle’s speed and length, gather traffic metrics and control actuators. It is a Lite version of the Data Processing Station (DPS) for simple installation with few detectors, where no extra local data processing is needed.


  • Provides a comprehensive set of traffic metrics: intensity, occupancy, presence, time headway, gap, individual and average speed and length of vehicles.
  • User-friendly web interface for easy configuration
  • Reports status and diagnostic information
  • Versatile communication options (RS485/RS232, IEEE 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, Ethernet, 3G or 4G LTE)
  • Great radio coverage thanks to easy-to-install low power repeaters
  • Cost effective solution for small installations, where vehicle detection is required to activate barriers or signals, as well, display panel information, among others.
