RidePod® BP

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.

One counter. One dataset.

Extracting both bicycles 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 to develop the world’s first Bike/Ped counter.

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 great flexibility and a wide range of reports.
