All-In-One Bike, E-Scooter & People Counter
Patent applied for
The device of choice for sustainable transport planning, the RidePod BP use two super-sensitive piezoelectric strips embedded in the path to accurately monitors bikes, e-scooters and pedestrians. Unlike other loop or radar sensors, the system covers and records all traffic across the path and is not affected by light or temperature.
Bolstering Funding ApplicationsEaling Council is a recognised leader in sustainable transport urban planning. Since 2011, an ongoing program of bike data collection has helped them develop an award-winning cycling infrastructure.
Measure Cycling AdoptionIn New York, the RidePod BP counter helps road managers to understand how infrastructure is being used, and assists road planners and engineers to manage upgrades and plan new infrastructure.
Bike Counter Accuracy Validation"202 of the observed 204 cyclists were counted (99.0%). It is noteworthy that prior to the cyclist trials there were 95 cyclists counted in the video and by the counter (in other words, the count accuracy was perfect)."
One counter. One dataset.
Extracting bicycles, e-scooters and pedestrians 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 and developed an all-in-one solution that is reliable and consistent.
The system is robust and will record accurate statistics year-round, in extreme conditions, without the need for regular maintenance. The resulting data is processed in the MTE® software, which offers incredible flexibility and a wide range of data reports.
