Clearview to launch first of its kind pedestrian and cycle counter at Highways UK
With the Highways UK show fast approaching, Clearview Intelligence have been gearing up to showcase their new first of its kind pedestrian and cycle counter at the event.
Taking place on November 6th and 7th at the NEC, Highways UK aims to bring together local authority, urban roads and the Strategic Road Network sectors into one place and is the perfect occasion for showcasing this new innovation.
For the show, as well as demonstrating the latest Clearview route safety and network management range of solutions, the company will have its new pedestrian and cycle counter live and in action on the stand. Using Clearview’s experience and expertise in detection systems, the new solution is the first time a LIDAR has been deployed to detect both pedestrian and cyclists in one unit.
Introducing the innovation, Wayne Stant, Strategy and Marketing Director for Clearview says “Cyclist and pedestrian numbers are growing significantly, and authorities need to understand the demand on their networks. This feeds into active travel strategies to ensure that footpaths, cycle ways and roads offer sufficient capacity and safety features, as well as being a major contributor towards lowering air pollution and improving public health in our towns and cities.”
The new solar-powered pedestrian and cyclist counter is unique in the market. Featuring LIDAR sensor technology and intelligent algorithms, this enables it to determine direction of travel as well as producing highly accurate pedestrian and cyclist counts from up to seven metres away. Providing authorities with clear intelligence on patterns of demand all year round.
Designed to sit in a small and unobtrusive cabinet at the side of pavements and cycleways, the system is currently in beta testing at several sites across the UK. At the show, Clearview will be looking for expressions of interest from other interested parties who may be interested in joining the beta programme.
Clearview’s stand (H50) can be found in the middle of Hall Nine.
