Our Pneumatic TUBE counter is the perfect solution for temporary (one-day to one-month) bike counting. The TUBE counter is extremely versatile (it can be used on- or off-street) and mobile (installation takes less than 30 minutes).
The system uses a set of two tubes that are placed perpendicular to traffic flow along the pavement. The system simultaneously measures the speed of each user and the distance between the front and back wheels.
With this information, the TUBE counter is able to distinguish bicycles from motorized vehicles in mixed traffic, extract directional data, and accurately count the number of cyclists in a group.
