MetroCount – a revolutionary new approach to traffic surveys
Almost ten years ago we decided to completely overhaul the traffic data gathering process. We set out to improve every aspect, from axle sensors and logging hardware, through to traffic analysis software.
This effort resulted in a very simple, yet extremely effective new approach: store every axle and process them all later. We have continually refined this approach to bring you our latest, 6th generation, MetroCount Vehicle Classifier System.

MetroCount hardware and software
Comprising the all-new MetroCount 5600 Series Roadside Unit (the hardware) and our latest, world-leading Traffic Executive package (the software), MetroCount will revolutionise the way you think about traffic data.

Traffic Executive™ Windows software included
Our philosophy is to provide you with high quality software at no extra charge. That’s why we include Traffic Executive with MetroCount, instead of being an expensive, after-sale option.

Every individual vehicle is retained in the data
The key to MetroCount’s unbeatable flexibility is the way traffic data is collected. The MetroCount Roadside Unit precisely logs EVERY axle, no matter whether you’re classifying vehicles or doing simple counts. You start a survey by simply entering site details, nothing more!
Unlike traditional classifiers and counters, MetroCount does not process traffic data at the roadside. The actual traffic analysis is done later, on your computer, with Traffic Executive.
You decide after the survey how to interpret your data, by selecting the report or data type you need. You can easily generate varied reports and graphs with speed statistics, volumes, classes, gap, and more. Traffic Executive makes these tasks easy and meaningful for you.
The MetroCount approach frees you from instructing field staff on your required traffic parameters, and lets you make intelligent choices in the review and audit of your data.
With memory options up to 2MB and efficiently storing up to 1,000,000 axles, MetroCount makes other systems that “bin” or summarise vehicle speeds obsolete.

MetroCount Signature System

We have created a sophisticated interaction between the MetroCount Vehicle Classifier System hardware and software that allows us to offer a variety of Option Levels, including Base, Regular and Plus, all with the option of Batch processing.

Each MetroCount Roadside Unit of the 55xx Series or newer has an Authenticity Signature that identifies the Option Level you purchase. Traffic datasets created using MCSurvey then inherit this Option Level. Other programs in Traffic Executive dynamically change their available features based on the Option Level of the datasets you load.

One of the best features of the MetroCount Signature System is that you can easily upgrade the Option Level of your Roadside Units, any time after purchase, via fax or e-mail. We simply supply you with new Authenticity Signatures, then any new datasets you create will have your new Option Level.

Old datasets can be upgraded to your new Option Level, but only by MetroCount. Contact us for details about our Dataset Signing Service.
