About the product

Laying the rumble strip

A rumble strip is designed to alert approaching traffic as early as possible for upcoming road works. Underneath the M.A.R.S® a rumble strip is incorporated that can, automatically, be placed and picked up. An active camera system combined with a touch screen in the cabin assists the driver in positioning the rumble strip. It adapts perfectly to the shape and surface of the road, creating a stable and safe first alert in any roadblock.

 

Automatic cone machine: Fully automatic cone pick&placer

The European network of roads is constantly expanding. At the same time, it is used more intensively. Wear and tear is the direct result thereof. Repair and maintenance of the vast network is daily practice. Activities that increasingly test drivers’ patience. In order to avoid heavy and dangerous work for roadworkers, TrafIQ developed the Mobile Automatic Cone machine Pick&placer (M.A.C.P®).

 

Placing and picking up cones

In a specially designed storage the M.A.R.S® stocks a large number of cones, that can be automatically placed and picked up at a speed of 20 to 30 kilometers an hour. Picking up the cones is done in reverse with the automatic cone machine. The heavy cones are actually picked up by hand in the direct proximity of rushing traffic, the M.A.R.S® does it automatically, with the driver safely seated in the cabin of his truck.
