The Sensor Line team around Robert Rubner (CEO) with its 16 specialists in the field of fiber optic sensor technology is developing and producing future-oriented applications and products for the road traffic and rail traffic and will keep you updated about their news and events.

Intertraffic Mexico 2018

In 2018, Sensor Line participated for the first time at Intertraffic Mexico. Together with our long time associates Deviteck from Colombia and Techno Supply from Brasil we had the intention to leave a very good first impression at the exhibition. For Sensor Line and its partners, the fair was a great success where many new and promising business contacts were made. Sensor Line spotlighted its brand new classification system – SL Road System – that is an important step for Sensor Line in becoming a system provider. Alongside its SL Road System, Sensor Line displayed some of its unique and reliable Fiber Optic Road Sensors, which are noise free, EMV immune and visibility independent. However, the many new products were not the only topic for Sensor Line on the fair. In addition to its operative segment, Sensor Line discussed with interested and potential clients its forward-looking strategy for the Latin American sector in 2019. Be excited to see what else we have to offer you. For further information, you can contact us at

Innovative use of our sensors in Belgium

In 2018 SignCo successfully installed 30 stations for bicycle detection. This happened in the cities of Bruges, Gent, Antwerp, Mechelen in Belgium as well as in Eindhoven and Helmond in the Netherlands. The use of our sensitive TWIN sensors, specially developed for this purpose, for bicycles, children's bicycles and strollers shows how flexible and versatile Sensor Line sensors are. Our partner SignCo has already announced further bicycle counting stations for the year 2019.
Engineer Stijn Goossens, Director of SignCo, about Sensor Line: "The sensitivity and accuracy of Sensor Line's sensors are enormous. No matter whether an adult or a child is sitting on a bicycle, or even a stroller is driving over our stations. With these sensors, we can detect and count everything very accurately. No matter what kind of weather, day/night, materials used for the bikes or magnetic fields around the location. This makes it a very robust and accurate way of high qualitative measurements. Direction, type of passant, speed, occupancy, … it’s all known and with innovation just around the corner, we will even add extra information to it."

High speed flat wheel detection with fiber optic rail pad sensors
Sensor Line launches rail traffic management system

At InnoTrans 2018, the rail industry’s leading international trade fair, Sensor Line launches with SL Rail system a rail traffic management system for flat wheel detection. It is based on Sensor Line’s Fiber Optic Rail Pad Sensor (FORPS) and four high speed signal processing systems.
The pad sensors are easy to install, immune against EMP and deliver a highly accurate signal. The four signal processing systems acquire synchronized data with 10 kHz each. Preprocessing is done on a Raspberry Pi system on site. Results are send by wireless/wired network to SL Rail Manager and stored in a central database.
SL Rail Cockpit Monitor shows actual data and gives access to all stored data for comparison and reports. Furthermore, an interface to other customer systems is provided.

Visit us at InnoTrans in Berlin, 18 - 21 September 2018, Hall 26, Booth 206.
