Bicycle Tube Counter
At MetroCount, there’s always room for improvement. We took our already hyper-accurate MC5620 Bike Counter and built on its strengths. With 4 times the memory, 5 times better battery life, and improved speed detection accuracy, we welcome you to put our RidePod® BT to the test.
Accurate, practical and meaningful
The RidePod® BT collects axle data from dedicated and on-road bike lanes using two thin-walled pneumatic tubes. This data is analysed by our MTE software running the axle information through optimised algorithms. Axle information is used to identify bike clusters and distinguish between bikes, pedestrians and scooters, presenting accurate bike volume, speed and directional information.
Our counters use a military grade communication interface, providing longevity in harsh environments. The connector is passive, removing the risk of corrosion that affects powered interfaces like USB cords.
The RidePod® uses flash memory, enabling long life bike data collection and retention even during a battery change. The increased memory in the RidePod BT is more than sufficient for any bike survey.
RidePod® BT + FieldPod®
Add Remote Access to Your Counter
The RidePod® BT is the only tube-based vehicle counter that supports remote connection via an additional piece of hardware, the MetroCount Remote Access Module. Your counter can be upgraded at any time to include FieldPod® functionalities.
