RoadPod® VL 5810

Vehicle Loop Classifier

Designed for hassle-free surveys, the RoadPod® VL series uses embedded inductive loop sensors to provide long-term traffic data. Whether you need to monitor an eight-lane highway or single lane country road, the RoadPod® VL 5810 precisely captures all road activity, including accurate length-based classification.

MetroCount Traffic Analysis

Investigating Seasonal Trends

Traffic data plays an important role in many traffic engineering and planning projects. For example, the City of Perth runs an annual traffic monitoring program in order to observe traffic trends from year to year.

Improving Traffic Flow

In 2014, a traffic study was initiated in Fribourg, Switzerland. The results will be used to reduce heavy vehicle traffic, improve infrastructure design, and reduce noise pollution. Over 5 years, data from 300 sites will establish baselines across 640km of road.

Monitoring Visitor Numbers

The volume of visitors at Whiteman Park fluctuates greatly, based on scheduled events or seasonality. With three key entrances and exits, the park utilises RoadPod® VL 5810 units to capture data on volumes, classes, and speeds in the park.

Connecting to pre-installed loops

Monitoring multi-lane Freeways

Straightforward Installation

MetroCount’s inductive loop systems are built from simple and affordable components. Besides enabling an easy and accessible installation, the MC5810 can also connect to loops already embedded on the road. Contractors familiar with traffic signal sensors will find the setup particularly effortless.

RoadPod® VL 5810 offers a set of diagnostic tools bundled in the MTE softwareLoop Scope provides feedback on the condition of loops. Meanwhile, Loop Monitor tests connections and crimp terminals. Together they identify any faults in the setup process and supply a full diagnostic of the equipment.
