BRAUMS SENSE is the fusion of capability + technology, now delivering modern above ground detection solutions to traffic management, roads and highway authorities and councils. BRAUMS SENSE utilises smartmicro modern above ground detection traffic sensors preserving the road-surface.
BRAUMS delivers capability through decades of experience designing, developing and supplying high-quality traffic signal hardware, traffic controllers and accessories.
smartmicro delivers technology with the most recommended radar sensor technology for above ground detection traffic sensors. Over 80 thousand sensors are already deployed globally.
Modern traffic sensors are capable of performing multiple roles simultaneously. Most often, replacing several single-purpose old technologies across an intersection or highway. BRAUMS defines each of these roles as ‘capabilities’. BRAUMS SENSE simply categorises the capabilities to match the most common requirements of road authorities, councils and traffic management systems.
Basic and advanced detection capabilities are grouped under BRAUMS SENSE Detect.
Counting and classification capabilities are grouped within BRAUMS SENSE Count.
Additional BRAUMS SENSE capabilities will be rolled out over the coming months, including BRAUMS SENSE Insight, delivering data, analytics and insights into your traffic management.
Ongoing development, coupled with the realisation of the power of this sophisticated technology, will continue to see new use cases and benefits being discovered as the devices are deployed globally. So far, we’ve only scratched the surface of what can be achieved with BRAUMS SENSE.
BRAUMS SENSE is the very definition of Smart Traffic & Intersection Management (STIM).
BRAUMS SENSE Count utilises smartmicro traffic sensor technology. Unlike older side firing sensors, modern smartmicro traffic sensors use multiple forward firing beams which means vehicles remain inside the field of view for much longer, their position and speed vectors are measured with higher accuracy, and better classification is achieved. BRAUMS SENSE Count, with smartmicro traffic sensors, delivers speed, volume and occupancy (SVO) data for highway counting and classification of multiple vehicle classes, including pedestrians, bikes, motorcycles, passenger cars, transporters, trucks or buses and long trucks.
Road authorities, councils and traffic management systems benefit from the SVO, count and classification real-time or historical data to make informed decisions.
Our sensors feature the most advanced multi-lane and multi-object tracking. They achieve highest detection performance, excellent counting accuracy and classification of moving and stopped traffic – no matter if the road is straight or curved.
Radar is the most robust sensing technology and is not affected by dirt, smog, sunlight, wind or sandstorms. Heavy rain and snow may only have a minor impact on the performance of the units.
BRAUMS SENSE Count currently supports several capabilities, including:
Above ground detection systems and traffic sensors, such as the smartmicro traffic sensor devices, define virtual zones over the road, where previously in-ground inductive loop detectors were embedded in the road surface – such as stop bars at intersections.
BRAUMS R2X emulates in-ground inductive loops utilised at intersections and embedded in roads and highways for a multitude of detection and measurement applications.
✔ BRAUMS R2X supports up to 4 smartmicro traffic sensors, covering complete intersections with a single device.
✔ BRAUMS R2X is expandable, providing support for up to 4 loop detector cards, managing and replacing up to 64 in-ground inductive loops.
✔ BRAUMS R2X also features configurable relays, supporting traffic light phase extension, speed triggering, and other capabilities.

Designed and developed in Australia, BRAUMS has a range of accessories supporting the deployment of smartmicro traffic sensors.
BRAUMS has developed a bracket range for smartmicro traffic sensors to best suit existing infrastructure on Australian roads. The brackets maintain full sensor adjustability, and compatibility with smartmicro accessories such as the protective shield.
Further, BRAUMS is happy to supply all smartmicro accessories, providing the most comprehensive range of shields, cables, interfaces, tools and in-cabinet equipment any deployment requires.
The Serial Relay Option (SRO) module supports any application that requires contact closures attached to the sensor. Additionally, we offer an In-Cabinet Relay Option (CRO) with the same functionality. Both let a smartmicro radar sensor control eight hardware relays via RS485. The CRO is available for one to four sensors.
J-Box and Cables
The smartmicro Junction Box (J-Box) offers a simple and reliable way to connect our radars to any home-run cable, connecting the sensor to the cabinet. It can accommodate a wide range of cables inside a water-tight sealing and connects the cables to a terminal block. The J-Box also protects the radar from voltage surges and overvoltage.
The Electronic K-band Target Simulator Doppler Generator (EKTSDG) is battery-powered, handheld and portable. It was specifically developed to work with our 24GHz sensors and is capable of simulating a moving target in distances of up to 100m. It can be used for installation, alignment, calibration or function testing of sensors in the field or lab.
The simple and intuitive Traffic Management Configurator (TMC) software enables the configuration of single sensors but also entire intersections and highway installations.
The TMC Installation Wizard simplifies the planning and field installation of our sensors with an intuitive step-by-step guide. The configuration includes site planning, sensor selection and configuration as well as physically installing the device at an intersection. With one simple window for settings, and a map for better visualization, the TMC explains all user-friendly settings. It provides unique features such as "local awareness" and "guided alignment", with which our sensors directly provide feedback to the installer about where it is mounted and how well it is physically aligned to cover the area of interest.
