The 2nd “Tunnels and ITS” Symposium, Norway

Sun 1 Sep 2013

Tunnel Sensors will be attending the 2nd Tunnel and ITS Symposium in Bergen Norway from the 18th – 19th September.


This second international symposium is organised jointly by the Norwegian Public Roads Administration and ITS Norway and will focus on the development and deployment of intelligent transport systems for tunnels with high or low traffic density.

Over the next 10 years, more than 120 km of new tunnels are expected to open in the western region of Norway alone. The need for efficient and safe solutions in tunnels is growing in pace with the increase in traffic density. Accordingly, planning for traffic breakdown situations in tunnels is also gaining in importance. The possibility of an increase in the frequency of complete standstills in vital urban tunnel networks makes ITS solutions critical.

The symposium is administered by Tekna – The Norwegian Society of Graduate Technical and Scientific Professionals and further information can be found at

Tunnel Sensors


The VCOM satisfies the common requirement for a single sensor solution for monitoring both CO and visibility in road tunnels.


The AIRFLOW offers a rugged, non-contact solution for the universal requirement to monitor air velocity and direction in the tunnel.


The VIPA MkII tunnel monitor makes
a visible opacity measurement
to determine the visibility within the
