Automated Passenger Detection System

High occupancy vehicle compliance

Automated Passenger Detection System

Passenger Verification

NEC's Automated Passenger Detection System (APDS) works non-evasively to reduce the need for labor-intensive enforcement monitoring that depends on physical visual inspections of high occupancy vehicles (HOV) and high occupancy traffic (HOT) lanes.

Modifiable Configuration

NEC APDS is located roadside for superior results.
By capturing the side of a vehicle, APDS is capable of gauging occupancy of a vehicle's front, 2nd and even the 3rd row accurately*.


One APDS detects a single lane of traffic.

For installations that involve two lanes of traffic, a secondary APDS is installed roadside in addition to a front camera gantry-mounted APDS system. In instances where the secondary roadside APDS is blocked by a first lane vehicle, information gathered by the front camera system is alternatively used ensuring ongoing verification even when traffic conditions are heavy.

*Based on NEC field testing.

Fully Self Supported

APDS is not reliant on any external interface to function making it capable of independent operation.



A maintenance online management system monitors for instances of equipment anomalies. Should an issue occur, an alert helps ensure fast remediation.


A command-line user interface permits APDS to be easily configured through intuitive prompts. This enables the system to be tailored based on location, scope of use and preferred modes of functionality for a customized installation.


The APDS's control processor is fully contained consisting of microprocessors, memory, storage, peripheral controllers and system interfaces all within one single centralized unit for simplified operation.
