RoadPod® VT

Vehicle Tube Counter & Classifier

Building on the success of the universal MC5600 Vehicle Counter System, we bring you the latest generation of portable traffic counters, the RoadPod® VT Vehicle Tube Counter. With massively improved memory, battery life, and data download speed, this system is the state of the art in traffic monitoring.

Year-round Access to Data

With remote tube data collection sites at key park locations, Parks Victoria has access to traffic data when they need it. Remote access has reduced costs and streamlined the flow of data through the organisation.

Targeted Law Enforcement

'If there is a site where crashes occur constantly, then traffic counters are certainly more cost-effective than wasting police manpower." - Lt. Michael Katsoudas of the Hillside P.D. (New Jersey)

Transport Model Calibration

Researchers used MetroCount pneumatic tube systems to apply real traffic data to the calibration and validation of transport models. The data recorded provided benchmarking for the researchers in Romania.

The 7th Generation Tube Counter

With over 20 years of development behind, the RoadPod®VT represents a huge leap forward for portable traffic counters. Storing up to 4 times more axles, with data downloading 6 times faster, and a power efficient battery that lasts 5 times longer*, the RoadPod®VT saves time and money without compromising the reliability that MetroCount has become known for.

*When compared to the performance of the MC5600 Series.

Download Speed

MetroCount's military grade communication interface has been developed for longevity in harsh environments. The connector is passive, removing the risk of corrosion that affects powered interfaces like USB.

Memory Capacity

RoadPod® VT uses flash memory, enabling data retention even when the battery is removed. The optimised data encoding system (StampEx) ensures the memory is more than sufficient for all survey conditions.
