Automatic vehicle counting, opt for reliable equipment
When you want to analyze traffic on a road, you need quality equipment. Icoms Detections understood this well and designed the TMS-SA automatic vehicle counting unit. The latter allows you, on an ad hoc basis, to measure road traffic. This allows you to analyze the speed, determine the number of vehicles on the road and sort them according to their length. Capable of measuring these data for one lane in each direction of traffic, it provides very reliable information.
Where should an automatic vehicle counting device be placed?
Thanks to its small size and ease of installation, performing automatic vehicle counting is very simple. You can place it anywhere where it is necessary to obtain measurements such as a national or county road.
The advantage of the TMS-SA lies above all in its practicality. It is small and does not need maintenance. It can also last three weeks on battery power, long enough to get all the necessary data. Its installation only takes a few minutes, thanks to its motorized antenna, its automated adjustment and the Android app supplied for free with the device. Its operating system is also very intuitive and sends data via Bluetooth, wirelessly, to your smartphone or PC.
Why carry out vehicle counting?
Usually this is done for the purpose of analyzing road traffic and the behavior of road users. Since the TMS-SA measures speed, it is possible to determine whether motorists are often speeding or not.
You will also be able to identify any potential black spots in your road network and get the keys to finding a solution. Finally, local residents may also complain about certain nuisances related to traffic in their neighborhood, such as speeding or heavy goods vehicle traffic. By placing an automatic vehicle counting unit, you will be able to objectify these statements.
Icoms Detections also manufactures other products for road traffic management such as speed displays, bicycle counters and sensors for traffic light management, to name a few examples.
