Intellicone Smart Taper System has been designed to provide:

  • Real-time roadworks information
  • Taper strike detection
  • Historical data on-demand
  • Ability to interface with third party systems

How it works:

Smart Taper

Intellicone Smart Taper System connects conventional temporary roadworks equipment to the internet, enabling remote monitoring. This provides instant alerts when a taper is struck or in the event of a vehicle incursion, triggering a prompter response, therefore reducing risk and improving efficiency.

Smart Work Zone management system uses intelligent geozoning technology to provide accurate on and off times, location and work details. This allows traffic management operators to proactively manage their works whilst providing opportunity to automate wider road space management.
