Bike+ People Piezoelectric Counter
Patent applied for
Two super-sensitive piezoelectric sensors detect and time-stamp pressure on a bike path or lane with millisecond precision. When the dataset is analysed in MTE®, individual bikes are identified and non-bike strikes are further processed to determine reliable and consistent pedestrian volumes. RidePod BP is the device of choice for sustainable transport planning.
Speed monitoring for road safety
Profiling various cyclist segments
True direction detection and filtering
One counter. One dataset.
Extracting both bicycle and pedestrian counts from a stream of similar objects is a unique challenge. Engineers at the MetroCount R&D facility in Australia have applied their expertise in piezoelectric sensor technology to develop a world first bike + people counter.
The system is robust and will continuously record accurate statistics year-round, in extreme conditions, without the need for regular maintenance. The resulting data will be post-processed the MTE® software that offers great flexibility and a wide range of reports.
