MetroCount MC5620

In late 2015 MetroCount released its second bike counter, the MC5620. Building on the successes of the world-renowned MC5600 portable vehicle traffic counter, as visitors to the company’s stand at Intertraffic Amsterdam will see, the MC5620 has now been refined to achieve the highest degree of sensitivity required for detecting bicycle tyres. The company says this system has been proven to detect cyclists with 99% accuracy in video tests conducted in real-life conditions.

The MC5620 gives access to cyclist metrics like volume and speed with the ability to filter the data by time, direction, class and a host of other variables. Through engagement with bike data, planners and engineers gain broad oversight of cycling participation, along with specific details like peak commuter flows and localised speed issues.

The MC5620 joins MetroCount’s established MC5720 permanent bike monitoring device to provide a temporary solution to monitoring bikes across road networks. Applications include event monitoring, site canvasing for permanent installations, monitoring school zones and a host of other seasonal applications.
