Tagmaster is launching its new CityRadar which is designed and optimised for smart city applications and is able to measure pedestrians, bicycles and vehicles.
The CityRadar sensor, being launched here in Copenhagen, allows for the collection of volumetric and classified data without the need for in-ground sensors. This radar product has been designed without traditional low speed cut-out filters to be able to handle paths with any combination of cycles/pedestrians. Based on advanced technology, CityRadar can even distinguish joggers from cycles and classify both targets correctly. Tagmaster says the product’s ability to count groups of cyclists and carbon fibre bikes is superior to other known sensor technologies, thanks to its advanced radar sensor and sophisticated discrimination algorithms.
The versatile design allows the same device to be installed to monitor normal road traffic where it can count, length classify and determine a vehicle’s speed. According to Tagmaster, the ease of installation means units can be installed and removed quickly and easily, allowing for rapid deployment on existing street furniture. CityRadar can either be solar or mains-powered for permanent installations, or battery powered for short surveys. The device can also be fitted with internal GSM/GPRS/4G modem for remote data collection.
