About RoadPod® VP 

This system has two channels that can be configured for either:

  • Time-stamping class, speed and volume data
  • Binned counts of one, five, 15 or 60 minutes

Each channel features:

  • Peak detection with adaptive threshold
  • Rising or falling edge detection
  • Adjustable sensitivity
  • Adjustable digital debounce filtering
  • Internal pull to supply or ground
  • Protection to 8kV ESD or >300V continuous

Add FieldPod® Remote Access

RoadPod® VP supports remote connectivity via the 3G network.

This enables you to get your data and system diagnostics remotely, from your desk. Additionally, FieldPod subscribers received customised reports of their data. 

The FieldPod add-on is especially efficient for managing wide or isolated survey networks, such as cities or National Parks.

Complimentary MTE™ software

Our world-leading MTE™ software package comes free with the RoadPod® VP unit.

This system integrates seamlessly into the MetroCount Traffic Executive™ environment:

  • All features field programmable, using a mobile PC
  • Compile a database of favourite configurations
  • Configurations can be locked, preventing accidental change or deletion
  • Set-up each channel independently, using the intuitive software interface
  • Configurations tracked in data reports
  • Data types can be mixed in Event Count reports
  • Convert time-stamped data into binned counts
