The bicycle paths on the island, which mainly consist of dunes, forests and polders, are often built from compacted shells. In order to gain more insight into how these roads are used, municipality of Ameland has commissioned MetroCount to record the volume and speeds of cyclists. The low traffic flow means the RidePod® BT counters can be used in a semi-permanent fashion. Tube sensors are also preferred because they allow a quick change of survey location and won’t be affected by a potential repaving of the paths. Installed far away from the villages, the counters are equipped with a solar panel and remote access. MetroCount specialists receive data on a weekly basis and process it further before delivering customised reports and the raw dataset to the customer.
