The next generation in cycle counting
With the launch of the Compact Bicycle Piezo, TagMaster introduces the latest generation of technology for bicycle counting into the marketplace for permanent bicycle counting. The system is perfect for obtaining trends over time and allows for the comparison of bicycle trips over consecutive months, seasons, or years. Real-time communication provides instant data on bicycle users to understand the potential impact on services and infrastructure.
The Compact Bicycle Piezo uses piezo sensors to precisely analyse the piezoelectric output profile of each bicycle using advanced signal processing. The unit measure the axle count, speed, and wheelbase for accurate counting. The system is ideal for deploying on bicycle paths and shared lanes with pedestrians and is an easy to use stand-alone system utilising battery or solar power options.
The Compact Bicycle Piezo can automatically transmit the traffic data via CSD/GPRS/3G/4G to a host. The unit will control when the modem is enabled to reduce power consumption and can be configured to act as a server or client depending upon which is best suited to the customers’ requirements. The unit has a built-in calibration process that will adjust the piezo settings automatically to achieve the best accuracy for bicycle detection.
The unit has Bluetooth for installation and configuration. It is also supported by a modern and very well-designed Android app for easy setup. Alternatively, the COLLECT software provide a simple user interface for the configuration and management of the device. This provides all the tools needed for site installation and commissioning, site validation and fault diagnostics as well as manual data collection if required.
The Compact Bicycle Piezo is compatible with all TagMaster Traffic Monitoring software products and is UTMC compatible in conjunction with the Catalyst. There is also an option of a Rest API running as a Docker image.
