Interview with new Monotch vendor partner Cycledata
Interview with Cees van der Zijl – Sales & Strategy Manager at Cycledata about the Monotch partnership

Cities can gain insight into the number of bicycles driving there, in which direction, at what speed and at what time on the cycle path. Our unique feature is the high accuracy, even at busy times and that the data is real-time. Resulting that the Signum can also be used as an i-Signum by linking it up to an intelligent traffic light controller (iTLC) to realize a flow of cyclists. The traffic light can therefore switch to green sooner or remain green longer based on the measurements by the i-Signum and the link via Monotch’s Talking Traffic platform.
