Urban Post

System Overview

The Urban Post is a highly accurate and robust person counting system. The Urban Post counts both cyclists and pedestrians and is ideal as a permanent counter in parks and along paved trails.

Using a PYRO sensor with its passive-infrared, pyroelectric technology and a high-precision lens, the Urban Post 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 Urban Post can simultaneously detect two people walking in a slightly staggered formation.

The post can be easily installed on any existing hard surface 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
  • Invisible – eliminates risk of vandalism
  • Works in all weather conditions
  • Speed classification (optional)
The Urban Post 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.

Thanks to its unique design, the Urban Post can house the complete counting system (logger, sensor and battery) in its galvanized steel housing.

The steel housing is vandal proof and the components inside are completely waterproof. The system has a two-year battery life when equipped with an active automatic data transmission option (3G/GSM) and a ten-year battery life with manual Bluetooth data transmission.

Like all Eco-Counters, the Urban Post wirelessly transfers data to the Eco-Counter server where it can be easily accessed using Eco-Visio, our specialized online data analysis software. All these features makes the Urban Post, like all Eco-Counters, a complete, turn-key solution.
