ADR-6000 Traffic Counter/Classifier

The ADR-6000 allows Transportation Engineers to better understand traffic characteristics in urban environments, during peak hours, or anywhere accurate data historically has been unobtainable.

By combining the Idris algorithms with special Oriux inductive loop detectors, Oriux and DCS developed the first urban data collection device system to collect accurate axle classification and volume data in heavily congested areas ( 95% accuracy in congestion or free-flow), using inductive loop technology.


The ADR-6000 is a modular single or multilane data collection system that offers accurate vehicle count and axle based classification in traffic conditions ranging from free flow to stop-and-go congestion. The system can be set up and operated by remote telemetry or directly in the field with a computer using simple communications software.

It utilizes sophisticated signal processing techniques to extract minute changes in inductance from standard loops. This provides intelligent profiling classification and wide area tracking of vehicles under conditions ranging from free-flow to stop and-go traffic, ideal for demanding ITS and urban data collection requirements.

The ADR-6000 is an instrument rack-based unit expandable by plug-in modules. The ADR-6000 can be shelf or panel mounted, and is available in a 10” wide form factor (supporting up to 4 lanes using 4 detectors) or a 19” wide chassis (supporting up to 6 lanes using 6 detectors.)

To inquire about additional lane support, contact Oriux for the latest product information. Electrical connections (external) are via rear-mounted plugs and sockets for loop inputs and serial communications. Optional plug in modules are available for additional detectors. All modules are Eurocard in size with DIN standard connectors.



Of importance to the user of modern counters/classifiers is the operating and reporting software, which supports,controls and formats the resultant data. A user-friendly Windows software package is available to complement the Oriux ADR- 6000. This software is the Traffic Operations Processing Software (TOPS) program from Oriux.

The TOPS program provides multi-file processing, store data files into a single database for easy file sharing among TOPS users, allows for edit and preview of reports before printing, provides for ADR data processing protocols,enables remote or local setup of Oriux ADR units and collection of data by direct manual connection or by the added functionality of automatic polling of field sites via modem connection (auto polling and weigh-in-motion support are add-in options). The TOPS program reads all files and generates a suite of daily, weekly and monthly reports.



Oriux warrants the hardware against manufacturing defects in materials and workmanship for two years from date of shipment from Oriux. The Idris software has a one year warranty provided by DCS. Specific contracts and regional laws may vary or alter these terms. Idris is a registered trademark of Diamond Consulting Services Ltd. The Idris Technology is protected by one or more of the following patents: EP0879457, USA6345228, 6337640 and 6483443. Further patents pending.
