Cycle Counting

The R-Com IoT VT cycle counting system uses a lamp post / wall mounted, high resolution video camera embedded Unit to count & record cyclist activity in a specific location or zone.

A dedicated VT processor module captures live video footage of cyclists passing thorough the zone activity and converts this into ‘units / blobs of data’.

Sophisticated, embedded algorithms eliminate potential errors and compensate for shadows, poor light, duplication & tailgating.

Data is stored and converted to industry standard MQTT format prior to transmission via Wi-Fi / network protocols to a remote Cloud based server.

Converting the data in real time & in situ in this way facilitates significant data compression in order to maximize the efficient storing and subsequent real time transmission of data for analysis.

Most towns and cities are looking at ways to encourage people to leave their cars in favour of cycling and walking.


Accurately record cyclist activity at key points along cycle routes

Count cyclist activity before and after cycle lane deployment

Monitor frequency and time of day usage

Analyse most effective / popular routes

Compare with traffic/ air quality data in order to minimise cyclist exposure

Identify potential bottlenecks & safety issues

Monitoring exit / entry points onto a dedicated cycle way

Calculate journey times and wait times at key intersections

Support the planning & measure the impact of major cycling events

Why R-Com?

The real time & time stamped, 24hr base data provided by the R- Com VT Cycle Counter can provide invaluable insights regarding cycling activity and requirements within a City.

This will also validate healthy cycling initiatives aimed at increasing cycle only pathways, reducing the number of vehicles and increasing healthier modes of travelling within cities.
