Pedestrian, Cycle Detection and Traffic Monitoring
The CityRadar is designed and optimized for smart city applications:
- Temporary or periodic traffic counting
- Permanent traffic counting
- Traffic information systems
A technical innovation
The CityRadar allows for the collection of volumetric and classified data without the need for in-ground sensors. This radar product has been designed without traditional low speed cut-out filters to be able to very accurately handle both dedicated paths with cycles and at the same time dedicated paths with pedestrians/joggers. The detection of cycles and pedestrians can even be done with a back drop of normal road traffic.
The City Radar’s ability to count groups of cyclists and carbon fibre bikes is superior to other know sensor technologies thanks to its advanced radar sensor and sophisticated discrimination algorithms. The versatile design allows the same device to be installed to monitor normal road traffic where it can count, length classify and determine the vehicles speed. The CityRadar can handle two lanes of traffic in the same direction or a bidirectional lane setup.
Cost effective installation
The CityRadar is a single integrated unit without need for in-ground sensors which makes it easy and quick to install and easy to move.
It can also be installed adjacent to car lanes due to advanced discrimination features. Compatible with an extensive package of software tools including Collect, Catalyst and Vehicle Data Analyser, making configuration, monitoring and reporting very easy to perform. The CityRadar is equipped with Bluetooth and USB communications for local setup and data collection.
The CityRadar can either be used for permanent or temporary installations. The ease of installation means units can be installed and removed quickly and easily, allowing for rapid deployment on existing street furniture. Data can be captured at various locations prior to new cycle ways being introduced to ensure they are in the most effective location. It can also be used to collect traffic data to allow traffic planners to determine if road impro-vements are required. Devices can either be solar or mains powered for permanent installations, or battery powered for short surveys. Units are fitted with an internal GSM/GPRS/3G/4G modem for remote dat collection.
