Applied Traffic unveils Bat-Box data collector
The radar-based Bat-Box, from UK traffic and vehicle monitoring specialist Applied Traffic, is inconspicuous, easy to install, user-friendly and can be attached to existing street furniture. It detects and records the passage of vehicle and bicycles in a range of environments – including multi-lane highways, bi-directional traffic lanes, paths, lanes and cycle tracks.
It classifies accurately in real time and is equipped with an integrated GMS/GPRS modem for streaming data, such as direction, lane, speed and length, to a back office computer, server or cloud-based storage system. Up to 600,000 individual vehicle records can be stored at any one time. The system is ideal for research for planning applications and developments.
A first-time exhibit is the Apollo range of UK-manufactured axle weighbridges. This next generation of in-motion or static axle-by-axle weighing system provides slow-speed, portable weighing. It is ideal for fleet operators and enforcement agencies, and will fit into the back of a car.
