### Metro count presentation

1. 1. MetroCount TrafficExecutive Software MC5805How Classifiers Work MC5720 MC5600 MC5712 MC5710 MC5740 About MetroCount
3. 3. After installing tubes, enter site details intocomputer or Pocketusing: the survey, retrieve data using laptop the Roadside Unit, PC,and return to office for processing with “MCReport”.“MCSetup” – Laptop computer, or“MCSetlite” – PocketPC Main Menu
4. 4. After the survey, process traffic data with “MCReport”...To produce many tables, charts, graphs and user-defined formats. All reports based on MetroCount’s “time-stamped” individual axle data! Main Menu
5. 5. Extensive post-survey data processing options Main Menu
6. 6. Text reports and graphical reports Main Menu
7. 7. User-definable searching and filtering Main Menu
8. 8. Data export options Main Menu
12. 12. AXLE SENSORS B A Two axle sensors (rubber tube, piezo strips) are installed on the S Known sensor spacing road a known distance apart (eg (usually = 1m) 1 metre), and connected to the Roadside Unit. Main Menu
13. 13. AXLE SENSORS B A Known sensor spacing S (usually = 1m) The System calculates the vehicle’s speed, S using the simple physical formula:V= Velocity(V) = Distance(s) / Time(Δt) Δt Main Menu
14. 14. AXLE SENSORS B A S Known sensor spacing Distance (s) is the known sensor (usually = 1m) spacing. SV= Δt Main Menu
15. 15. AXLE SENSORS B A Known sensor spacing S (usually = 1m) tB tA Δt = tB– tA The System calculates Time (Δt) by subtracting “tB” from “tA”, (which is simply the time S difference between the first two sensor strikes, or “hits”).V= Δt Main Menu
16. 16. AXLE SENSORS B A The System then measures the Known sensor spacing time offsets to subsequent axles S (usually = 1m) to calculate axle spacings (Sp1, Sp2, etc). t1 t2 t3 t4 Axle Spacings: Sp1 S Sp2V= Δt Sp3 Sp4 Main Menu
17. 17. AXLE SENSORS B A Known sensor spacing S (usually = 1m) Axle Spacings:Once the axle spacings are Sp1known, the System can “look Sp2up” the spacings in a Sp3“Classification Scheme”, todetermine the vehicle’s class. Sp4 5 – axle truck / trailer combination (e.g. ARX Class 9) Main Menu
