Utilizing the most advance ATR technologies we provide accurate classification, speed and gap studies on a wide variety of roadways. Multi lane classification counts present some challenges that Tri-State Traffic Data, Inc. can overcome. Utilizing advancements in both recording equipment and sensor technologies we can provide our clients with accurate classification data on the majority of roadway sections.
Tri-State Traffic Data, Inc. employs an experienced and reliable staff of Data Collection Technicians to conduct various traffic surveys including, but not limited to the following:
Utilizing ATR portable tube counters Tri-State Traffic Data, Inc. will provide accurate volume counts on any type of roadway. Counts can be conducted on roadways ranging from small residential streets to high volume interstate roadways. High volume roadways are typically completed during the overnight hours to eliminate the need to shut down any travel lanes and to avoid any impact with the travelling public.
The Video Collection Unit (VCU) is a portable camera used for capturing traffic video prior to running the collected data through the software analysis tool. The VCU can be used for both directional turning movement counts and mid block traffic data. The video is uploaded to the Miovision web site where it is put through their software for the analysis. It is very useful for very difficult 12 hour intersection counts which require additional people to provided breaks. It is also very useful for 24 hour or more volume counts where typical “tube” counts will not work. An example would be a driveway count where vehicles are not channelized to travel over road tubes.
This counter allows us to conduct traffic volume/speed data on two lane roadways using radar technology. One of the advantages of the Radar Recorder is that it is all but invisible to drivers. Since there are no road tubes in the road, and no other obvious signs that data is being collected, you get unbiased data without drivers changing their driving habits and skewing the results.
Utilizing advance radar technology these sensors can record classification/volume/speed data on 12 lanes at one time from the side of the roadway without ever having to enter the travel lane. Most of this equipment has been designed and sold to state transportation departments to utilize on a permanent basis. We have devised a system which allows us to use the equipment from the side of the roadway on a portable basis, allowing us to move it from site to site on an as need basis.
ATR counters with loop sensors allow us to connect to State Transportation Department existing loop sensors that are located on many high volume roadways. This eliminates the need and safety problems that occur when conducting data collection on high volume high speed multi-lane roadways
