We show you a inside look of Radenso Black Ops engineering where we try to tackle newly installed wrong way radar signs being installed around Cincinnati giving false alerts. We talk about how we go about learning the signal to use in Radenso Theia. Featuring Jon, Randy, Mindi and Rob from Radenso.

And now more faces to the names.
Everyone in this video has already been in a previous video

Edit: Actually we have all been in older videos with Vortex

Great video!

What was the FCC ID of the Wavetronix unit you were looking at? The FCC applications for the only two recent products from Wavetronix include pretty detailed technical descriptions:

The Wavetronix is a different module that I have at the office, the FCC ID of the Trafficalm system was:

Control MCU: 70841-rf220su
Radar module: 6902A-IMS944

I love the Vids every Friday--
Jon--think you can include one of those Killer Radenso Hats with each Theia purchase?

So if one were to GPS lock out 24.112 near that particular sign, would you still still get falses? I wasn't sure if there was frequency drift you're experiencing or something different with how those signs operate.

Theia will tell us if WE'RE traveling the wrong way with this tech imbedded in it, right? XD

This is a situation where lockouts don't really work well even for traditional detectors since we are seeing multiple carriers all spread at least 10-20mhz apart, and we are seeing some sweeping activity that looks like modulation. We just can't get close enough without a LNA to record the ones in the field doing the sweeps that they are programmed to, and the unit we had our hands on won't do anything since it's not connected to the master.

The thing with Theia is that with learning all of the potential causes of false alert means that there is no need for GPS lockouts. The system is smart enough to think "that is a fixed wrong way radar signal and I'm not going to alert". That's the beauty of Theia.

With today's RDs, the system would have to be active in order to lock it out. I gather that takes several steps to get it to activate, or its short enough range that you figuratively have to be on top it to get a signal.

I love that you guys are showing the realworld engineering in action and what all is involved in the development of these RD's.

This is the opportunity time to have a record button on Theia to have your user base record this stuff for you in the wild. Lol. I know. Not possible. Just dreaming. Lol.

Good video though.

This has been suggested many times already, great idea but I don't trust everyone (sorry, not sorry).

Perhaps you should send a Radenso T shirt to the person who makes a suggestion that has not already been made! Odds are, you won't give many away unless you change the criterium to 'has not already been made 5, 10, xx times'
...great idea but I don't trust everyone (sorry, not sorry).
I'd say 'great, not great'. :) People on rdf complain about information in Waze. Can you imagine the whining if you implemented this 'feature' and there was wrong information in Theia? :eek:

Exactly plus I remember the beginning days of Trapster... it was false alert city. EVERYONE in Cincinnati was marking traffic cameras as red light cameras.

Quick question, which might be little off-topic, but anyway: my country has a lot of fixed speed cams, that do not use radar or lidar at all, they use underground metal detection system to measure speed. These things are manufactured by Dyson, if I remember correctly. Theia will not need lockouts, but do we still have an option to do opposite (manually mark speed cam locations) so that we don't need to run phone app with detector? Thanks.

Thanks for the latest Friday video. Quick question, if Theia is designed to only alert to "Real Police Radar", is it really all that important to know the details about things like a "Wrong Way Vehicle Sensor". Of course, I'd be curious about how the sensor works as well, but is that info critical?

"If it was possible" maybe Radenso could select highly qualified people that you could trust...from around the country/globe.
They would have to be put through a good screening process to qualify! Maybe they would be able to capture what you need for training the AI.
