Traffic Monitoring

Whether you want to count a 6-lane highway or a bicycle lane, we are to help with either products, services or both.

Driveway Counting Systems

Driveway counting systems provide information for commercial enterprises and small public amenities that were previously only acheived through labour intensive, short term manual counts. Scott Technical can offer a range of systems depending on the nature of your driveway and type of traffic flow.

Systems include:

  • Tube counts - a rubber tube is placed across the road and connected at one end to a totalising counter. The hose is designed to flex and create an air pulse every time a vehicle crosses, with counts accumulated to the counter.
  • Beam counters - a range of beam counters are available which send a (normally) infra red beam across an accessway. Each time the beam is broken by traffic, a count is recorded. These systems can be used for foot traffic and cyclists, as well as cars.
  • Dataloggers - we now have low cost pulse counting dataloggers that can be connected to beam counters to provide a continuous record of counts and the time the count was recorded. These provide an excellent record if you are interested in when traffic occurred, peak flows or for special events.

Systems can be mains or solar powered. Please call us for advice on the best system for your application
