Bicycle detection using the TMA-3B3


With the increasing trends of population, we are increasing the threats to the environment. The cities are expanding with the enlarged demand for vehicles. If we talk about the pollution level, then we should have to focus on our vehicles because these are threatening our environment. The use of bicycles will play an amazing role in protecting the environmental level. To detect and count the bicycles on diverse paths, the use of TMA-3B3 is very efficient. The TMA-3B3 is a new device that involves the combination of a microwave sensor (RADAR) and a LIDAR in a single product. This information is useful in understanding the traffic flows perfectly. The next benefit is to make up-to-date decisions about the system, the infrastructure, and the mobility policy. In addition to this, the traffic department can access the feedback and behavioral influence along with the collected data.

One of the objectives of smart cities is to control pollution by focusing on the use of bicycles. Therefore, these cities encourage bicycle accessibility. This comprises, among other things, creating and maintaininggood cycling paths. To get the data on travel flows and behavior of the cyclists, the authority departments have to make correct decisions. The TMA-3B3 is a very innovative device in the domain of bicycle counting sensors. It allows the authorities to gather the data around the cycling behavior at comparatively low cost. This device also provides accurate data, even during peak hours, and allows the authorities to interpret the information effortlessly.

Solutions and Trends

Today’s intrusive solutions require to physically change the bicycle path and aretherefore very expensive and damaging to the road structure. Additionally, the bicycle path can’t be covered entirely by the use ofsuch systems, therefore achieving a lower accuracy of detection.

The TMA-3B3 is an efficient solution, it can be fixed on a pole or even on existing infrastructure and can be moved to diverse locations if needed. As the authorities are more concerned about smart cities and intelligent traffic systems, the demand for bicycle counting is increasing. The TMA-3B3 efficiently collects and reports bicycle measurements on bicycle paths to centralized servers wirelessly. It is a non-intrusive system and translates into a very cost-effective solution. It therefore involves a low-touch approach and no substantial planning. This system can be solar-powered for full autonomy and does not require maintenance.
