Eco-Counter’s Urban MULTI is an innovative and unique counting system that monitors and differentiates between pedestrians and cyclists. This system is typically installed permanently and is perfect for obtaining trends of pedestrian and cyclist use over time. This system combines the PYRO, passive infrared, sensor and the ZELT, inductive loop.
An intelligent subsystem, the Smart Connect, analyses the signal from both sensors in order to count and classify each user. The Urban MULTI is optimized to count large groups of pedestrians and cyclists with high accuracy making it ideal for high-volume multi-use paths.
Count and Classify Pedestrians and Cyclists:
In Arlington, Virginia, fifteen MULTIs monitor pedestrians and cyclists on a network of trails. Cyclists volumes often peak during rush hour. Pedestrian use is constant throughout the week and peaks during weekends, suggesting more recreational use of the network.
Thanks to its unique design, the Urban MULTI houses the complete counting system (logger, sensors and battery) in its galvanized steel housing. The steel housing is vandal proof and the components inside are completely waterproof. The Urban MULTI, like all Eco-Counters, is a complete turn-key solution: two-year battery life, automatic 3G/GSM data transmission option.
Versatile System Configuration:
The Urban MULTI is ideal for counting pedestrians and cyclists on shared paths. However, the system can be configured in the manufacturing process to count and classify users that occupy different spaces. For example, the system can count pedestrians on sidewalks and cyclists on a bike lane adjacent to the sidewalk. Simply ask your Eco-Counter representative.
For 20 years, Eco-Counter has been providing robust, reliable and autonomous data collection solutions to measure and analyze bicycle and pedestrian flows in urban and natural environments
