An advanced approach to optical traffic preemption

By communicating with the traffic control system located at each intersection, approaching emergency vehicles are given a “green” light before entering the intersection, thus creating the ability to move through heavy traffic situations.

Tomar’s STROBECOM II is an optical preemption system designed and engineered to help emergency service vehicles reach their destination quickly and safely. Optical Preemption Detectors sense the infrared optical pulses emitted by properly equipped emergency or transit vehicles. This industry-first technology provides real-time Traffic Preemption notification and system-analysis to vehicle operators at time of the Preemption Event.

This cutting-edge approach to Optical Traffic Preemption saves install time, money, and most of, all, could help to save lives.

Less Expensive

Being up to 25% less expensive than other preemption brands, agencies are able to include this technology at more intersections.

How Preemption Works

Preemption detectors sense the optical pulses emitted by properly equipped emergency vehicles.

  • Approaching a traffic light, vehicle operator signals Strobecom detector
  • Detector ensures traffic control system enters preemption mode
  • Safely manipulate traffic signals
  • Operator can safely proceed through traffic intersection
