Semi-automatic System for Laying and Retrieving Traffic Cones

Patented Technology

Optomachines & Autoroutes Paris Rhin Rhône – APRR

Developped by Optomachines in partnership with APRR (French motorway company), the Baliseur brings an ergonomic and safe  solution for laying and retrieving standard road traffic cones.


Enhanced security :
– The worker remains protected inside the van. He doesn’t need to lean out of the van.

Less drudgery of work :
– The cones are delivered at the right heigth to be lifted, so that the worker doesn’t need to lean to lift the cones. The system reduces drudgery of work.

More visibility :
– The Baliseur features reflective white and red stripes to enhance visibility.
– Seen as an extension of the vehicle, visible and permanently present on the road, the Baliseur keeps the traffic away from the worker.
– A camera and 2 monitors help the driver and the worker to have a good visibility of the traffic even at night.

Easy to use & ergonomic :
– The Baliseur  drops effortless on the road thanks to a motorised lift.
– The mechanical systems are simple and easy to use.



Dedicated to standard traffic cones of 75 cm.

The system consists of :

 ♦ a motorised ramp and a patented toppling bar

♦ a loading and discharging motorised system

♦ electrical and electronic components.


Originally developped to be fitted in vans with sliding lateral doors, the system is also available in rear configuration for vans with a large back doors. This version allows the operators to remain in the van during the installation.
