Permanent Traffic Monitoring
By utilising a modern traffic monitoring platform, which can be retro-fitted to historic inductive loop sites, you can unlock huge amounts of added value and instantly transform your current network of Automatic Traffic Counters (ATCs) in to an active monitoring hub with untapped possibilities, including:
- Congestion Monitoring
- Integration with 3rd party systems
- Seamless sharing of collected data
- Estimated Emissions
The TagMaster Compact Traffic Counter has been specifically aimed at the traditional count classifier requirements.
The Compact Traffic Counter can be used in numerous applications:

The compact uses inductive loops embedded in the road surface for long-term data collection. Combined vehicle and cycle monitoring capabilities. Mains or solar powered
The sophisticated embedded algorithms ensure that the vehicle length measurement is highly accurate, allowing for Individual vehicle records (Vehicle By Vehicle classification).
Individual vehicle speeds are recorded along with time stamps and lane designation to allow for gap analysis (time in seconds between vehicles) to be reported against speed limit violations to quickly identify dangerous driving behaviour on the road network.
Using a combination of the various data collection reports allow transport planners and road modellers to carry out their jobs.
Permanently installed Inductive Loops can provide real-time data feeds for use beyond simply capturing traffic data. Streaming this data to street lighting providers allows for judgments to be formed on whether to reduce lighting levels on specific roads based on live traffic flow data for energy saving objectives. Alternatively, if a route becomes much busier due to an unforeseen route diversion, street lights can be brightened to illuminate the roads better for a safer road network.
Live traffic data streamed from the Compact to the VDA-Net platform permits live speed and flow data to be checked and alerts produced on the SmartMap when abnormal flow conditions are found on the network.
Utilizing collected data to feed third party live traffic modelling applications, allows for green light optimisation to take place to endeavour to relieve congestion and decrease emissions.
