The Idaho Transportation Department announced that it has started a project in partnership with WTI to test a wildlife detection system on U.S. 95 in northern Idaho. The system uses a Doppler radar sensor to detect large animals on both sides of the road. It activates flashing warning beacons to alert drivers if animals are on or near the road. WTI will evaluate the performance of the system at a highway “hot spot” where there is a history of collisions with wildlife. The ITD press release contains more details and links to photos.
The completed project can be viewed here.
