New Cycle & Pedestrian Counting Kiosks
Trueform’s pioneering technology division, ‘Trueform Digital’, continues to drive the Intelligent Mobility revolution globally with further technological advances to its range of ultra-intelligent transport and wayfinding products, with the latest development of a Smart Cycle & Pedestrian Counter which includes ground breaking technology including Pedestrian and Cycle Counting, Pollution sensors, CCTV, advertising and more.
The Trueform SMART digital information kiosks can be linked to a series of different sensor types whereby they can provide real-time information on numbers of bicycles and walkers using a specific route, as well as highly localised information from linked air-quality sensors. This is beneficial where particulate and other pollution levels can be a major consideration for non-vehicular travellers and may, on days when air quality is poor, dictate modal choice. The digital information kiosks are a highly visible, on-pavement reminder of the existence of cycling and walking. They provide a ready reminder to all those within sight (not just cyclists and pedestrians) of individuals’ participation in the environmental improvement agenda.
Digital information kiosks help to promote active travel leading to an increase in cycling and walking catchment of an urban area. This has benefits in terms of safety, as even greater numbers of people travel without their vehicles. It can also aid the local economy, as those who were previously put off by congestion or the lack of a vehicle are encouraged to travel into an urban area from farther afield.
The SMART digital information kiosks feature the very latest low-power LED technology and, when linked to piezo-electric sensor systems, provide real-time updates of cycling and walking routes’ usage. Information in the form of daily and cumulative counts of cyclists and pedestrians are displayed; however the interactive TfT touchscreen below points the way (literally) to the future. TfT displays will provide users with information on the local area making navigation to points of interest far easier to accomplish.
Other additions which can be included is USB charging points, enabling travellers to guarantee connectivity should their mobile and other devices (such as cycle lights) start to run out of battery charge. WiFi hotspots can also be created, which enable online exploration farther afield and provide the facility to make online bookings and purchases at local amenities. Interactive voice facilities can provide a 24/7 link to centralised emergency and information service providers.
