Hybride Cycle Data Radar
Reliable data and a high degree of accuracy, even in peak hours
In the green city, the smart city of the future, the aim is to minimize the use of vehicles that impact on the urban environment. Municipalities and provinces are already faced with the task of promoting bicycle use and increasing bicycle accessibility – for instance by creating, maintaining and expanding an optimal, safe bicycle path network. In order to make the right decisions, they need reliable data on residents’ and regional cycling behaviour and cycle traffic flows.
More bicycles and fewer cars contribute to climate and energy objectives, have a positive effect on air quality and make a city greener, quieter, healthier and safer. In addition, a bicycle takes up little space. Cycling can therefore be the answer to the growing problems related to nature, the environment and the climate, as well as to the problem of increasingly limited urban space.
The Hybride Cycle Data Radar is an innovative bicycle traffic measurement instrument which enables authorities to collect data on bicycle traffic behaviour at relatively low cost. It is extremely accurate, even during peak hours.
These data provide insight into the traffic flows, enabling informed decisions on mobility policy, system and infrastructure. In addition, the Radar not only enables municipalities and provinces to collect information, but also enables feedback and the influencing of behaviour.
