Cycle Data introduces the Porta Cycle Data Radar for short-term bicycle counts.
Cycle Data B.V. has developed the Porta Cycle Data Radar, making short bicycle counts with high accuracy simple and relatively cheap. During the day as well as during peak hours, the system counts the number of vehicles on a bicycle path with an accuracy of more than 95%.
The bicycle is the center of attention. The increasing volume of traffic in inner cities and on access roads, combined with new ways of cycling, such as the e-bike and the speed pedelec, means that people are riding the bicycle more and more. The increasingly busy bicycle paths require their own traffic management and an expansion of the bicycle path network.
To fine-tune their policy to the actual daily use of the bicycle paths, municipalities and provinces need accurate bicycle data and preferably from multiple locations. A permanent bicycle counting system has been installed at various measuring locations. In addition, governments use field workers who perform manual bicycle counts for a short period, to generate some bicycle data at other locations.
The demand for such temporary location measurements is growing. In addition to the need for insight into bicycle data from multiple locations, for example, a detour and the consequences of this for the traffic on the bicycle path may be a reason for a short-term measurement. Or municipalities would like to have short-term bicycle counts performed to combine generated bicycle data across multiple locations with available floating data.
To replace these expensive manual counts, the Porta Cycle Data Radar can easily be used at any desired location for a short period. This mobile bicycle counting system is equipped with the High Quality Cycle Data Radar, which allows 24/7 measurement of the number of vehicles on the bicycle path, the cycling direction, speeds and times, with an accuracy of more than 95%, even during peak hours.
