The next generation in cycle counting
With the launch of the Compact PLUS Bicycle, TagMaster introduces the latest generation of technology 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 PLUS Bicycle 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 standalone system utilising battery or solar power options. PoE is also built-in as an alternative power option. The device is fully IP66 compliant while SIM card and memory card are still easily accessible. 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 easy installation and configuration. Smart security is implemented to ensure the high level of security that is a cornerstone of the TagMaster products and combine this with the easy-of-use that is expected. A physical paring (requiring access to the padlock of the equipment) is always used when establishing a connection the very first time. Later use of a Bluetooth connection with the same device is done via a unique password in the background, without requiring any specific user interaction.
It is supported by EasySetup, a modern and very well-designed Android app for setup. 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 PLUS Bicycle is compatible with all TagMaster Traffic Monitoring software products and is UTMC compatible in conjunction with the Catalyst. The middleware EasyData offers a Rest API running as a Docker image.
