British traffic and vehicle monitoring solutions company Applied Traffic has launched its latest traffic data collection system, the Bat-Box, at this year’s Intertraffic exhibition in Amsterdam.
The Bat-Box is an inconspicuous device, which is easy to install and can be attached to existing street furniture. The radar detects and records the passage of motor vehicles and/or bicycles over a range of scenarios that include multi-lane highways, bi-directional traffic lanes, paths, lanes and cycle tracks.
It is equipped with an integrated GSM/GPRS modem for streaming data, such as direction, lane, speed and length, to a back office computer, server or cloud based data storage system. Up to 600,000 individual vehicle records can be stored at one time.
Alan Cook, managing director of Applied Traffic, said: “The Bat-Box is an exciting and innovative new product designed for a range of traffic monitoring applications and as an alternative to inductive loop based systems.”
