How to count traffic - vehicle sensing

Using CCTV and intelligent counting units, a video vehicle traffic counting system achieves over 98% accuracy in all conditions: day and night in rain, sun and snow.

Video vehicle detection - video analytics
Cars are counted as they pass through the counting zone

One camera covers several exits of a junction. At four-way junctions, for example, the system provides multi-directional counts for vehicles turning north, south, east or west and coming from any direction - making the system very cost-effective.

There is no limit to the number of roads and junctions on which traffic can be counted using the scalable CCTV system. 

Local video analytics minimises bandwidth use. Traffic counts are uploaded in real-time via the internet, so traffic engineers can view live (down to 15 minute intervals for example) and historic counts from their web browsers. They can easily verify the counts simply by watching the video and manually checking.

Video traffic counting typically takes place continuously, year round, giving precise figures. 

It is simple to set up and non-intrusive. No components need to be installed directly into the road surface and users can easily modify the zones through which vehicles are counted from their office.
