Traffic engineers have a difficult job. Their decisions have a huge impact on safety and efficiency, but they often have to make those decisions with limited information. Fortunately, better data can help traffic engineers make smarter decisions.
Truth Vs. Perception
Traffic data can be used to discover the truth versus public perception. For instance, if there’s an area of town that drivers feel is unsafe, traffic engineers can gather data with tools like the Speed Tracker or the Sentinel Traffic system from Traffic Logix to measure actual vehicle speeds and behavior in the area. With hard evidence of dangerous conditions, traffic engineers can make better informed decisions about how to improve safety in that area. Often, resident perception is not aligned with reality, and in those cases traffic data can be useful in determining what doesn’t need to be done!
More Ways to Reach Your Goals
Until recently, Traffic Logix offered the Speed Tracker as a standalone data collector as well as data collection options integrated into each of our ITS solutions. With the release of two new data collection solutions, you can now get far more detailed traffic statistics to help you reach your safety goals.
Speed Tracker Plus
The new Speed Tracker Plus harnesses all the benefits of the Speed Tracker with more advanced data collection. The Plus model offers bidirectional data analysis as opposed to the single direction collection offered by the standard Speed Tracker. It also offers 3 classifications so you can see what types of vehicles are traveling on your roads and it supports mobile app usage, unlike the standard edition. Both the Speed Tracker and Speed Tracker Plus data collectors are designed for use mid-street. They both record speed violations, offer detailed reporting and charts, and transmit data instantly to Logix on Cloud.
The Sentinel Traffic System
The new Sentinel Traffic system is a video-based AI traffic counter that gives you detailed speed, volume, and classification counts for intersections. It tracks usage across 8 lanes and up to 4 directions and classifies over 10 vehicle types. It is the most robust traffic data collector on the market and can help engineers with long-term planning as well as short term speed control. The web based software gives users detailed statistics and charts with all the intersection data you need.
Better Data for Smarter Decisions
With Speed Tracker and Sentinel from Traffic Logix, engineers have an affordable way to gather detailed traffic statistics without ever actually needing to conduct a third party speed study. This data can be invaluable in traffic design, engineering, and infrastructure projects. With highly accurate data records, engineers have a more complete picture of what happens on local streets so they can plan ahead with confidence instead of waiting until problems arise.
With TrafficLogix Speed Tracker and Argos, you get access to detailed insights on street usage and traffic – helping keep your roads safe while making your cities more livable for everyone. This data can also be used to analyze traffic patterns, identify trends, and make better decisions when it comes to construction, road maintenance, and other associated activities.
With accurate data, engineers can more accurately identify areas of concern and prioritize resources to address them. As a result, cities can be better prepared and provide a safer, more efficient, and more enjoyable experience for drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians alike.
