System Overview

The PYRO-Box is an extremely sophisticated and versatile person counting system that is suitable to many applications. The PYRO-Box can count both cyclists and pedestrians in urban and trail environments and can be used for both temporary and permanent installations.

Using a PYRO sensor with its passive-infrared , pyroelectric technology and a high-precision lens , the PYRO-Box counts people passing within the range of the sensor by detecting their body temperature. Due to its well-engineered sensor and innovative ORION algorithm, the PYRO-Box can simultaneously detect two people walking in a slightly staggered formation.

The PYRO-Box is easily moved to various counting locations and the sensor is self-calibrating making for a simple installation.

  • Turn-key solution
  • Measures the direction of travel
  • Battery powered – 2-year battery life
  • Seamless data transmission to our software
  • Easy installation on any post
  • Battery operated – 10-year battery life
  • Works in all weather conditions
The PYRO-Box is available in a variety of ranges, making it possible to monitor pedestrian volumes on paths, sidewalks of any width, and even wide pedestrian streets. On Grafton Street in Dublin, a two-sided PYRO-Box with a 20m/65′ range allows planners to monitor pedestrian traffic on Dublin’s most frequented shopping street. The PYRO-Box is available in both one-sided and two-sided configurations.

The PYRO-Box is a multi-purpose counting system. It is a perfect solution for counting pedestrians and cyclists on multi-user paths. The sensor monitors both pedestrians and cyclists by measuring the heat emitted by the user. The system maintains a high level of accuracy when counting cyclists travelling at high speeds.
