MetroCount Traffic Executive™ |
MetroCount Traffic Executive™ Comprises three main components:
| Roadside Unit & Survey Operations |
surveys with MCSetup
for use on a notebook computer in the field, MCSetup combines clarity
and utility with the intuitive Windows environment, and boasts features
that cannot exist on systems with small built-in displays and a few
buttons. With MCSurvey, you can quickly setup your MetroCount Roadside
Unist for either classifying or counting at a single site and simplify
large, multi-site surveys.
your MetroCount Roadside Unit with MCSetup is easy. MCSetups simple
interface guides you through the survey process. MetroCounts store
every axle approach means that you dont need to set time increments,
vehicle classes or program awkward speed bins before you survey.
displays of battery condition and memory usage, and a real-time traffic
view, remove any guess-work about the status of your Roadside Unit.
MCSetups concise messages and clear warnings give you the feedback
you need to collect good data every time.
the survey, MCSetup stores the traffic data on your computer. Depending
on your data access and archival needs, MCSetup automatically creates
and manages complex folder structures using any combination of Site
Number, Survey Attribute, Year, Month and Week details retained in
the header of every MetroCount dataset.
database with optional GPS
With MCSetups site database and map interface you can efficiently
tackle large surveys. Select sites from your previously compiled database,
or create new sites at the roadside using a Global Positioning System
(GPS) receiver and our optional GPS interface. Using available maps,
you can select sites by simply pointing and clicking on the display.
Data Analysis and Reporting |
MCReport is Traffic Executives traffic analysis engine and the power behind all MetroCount Vehicle Classifier Systems.
MCReport lets you release the full potential of your MetroCount Vehicle Classifier Systems, effectively bringing the power of todays personal computer to the roadside.
Managing data with MCReport
MCReport contains Traffic Executive's dataset management utility. It scans your computer's local and network disk drives for MetroCount datasets. MCReport displays your computer's folder tree structure on the left and the contents of your selected folders on the right, with columns sorted on traffic data and survey attributes. Multiple windows may be opened for copying or moving datasets. Multiple datasets may be selected and loaded for analysis.
vehicles with MCReport
MCReport is the heart of the MetroCount Vehicle Classifier S ystem.
After retrieving data from classification surveys, you command MCReport
to replay the axle events on your computer to construct practically
ANY conceivable analysis.
unleashes the power of todays personal com puter. The advanced algorithms
in the new vehicle processing engine offer unparalleled vehicle discrimination
and accurate classification, even under the most adverse conditions
(eg car parks).
has a vast range of traffic reports. As well as routine traffic volumes,
speeds and classes, you have sophisticated, yet easy-to-use tools
to examine congestion, traffic density, entering capacity, platooning,
traffic calming and more.
uses MetroCounts store every axle approach to full effect, giving
you further tremendous advantages:
Most importantly, the data you collect today can be processed again
and again with MCReport, to cope with any future traffic issue. Your
traffic data will become an increasingly valuable asset every time
you do a survey.
axles with MCReport
MetroCount further expands your traffic survey capabilities with MCReports
axle counting mode. When used for axle count surveys, MCReport also
uses MetroCounts store every axle approach, providing you with
enormous flexibility. Your reports and graphs can use any time increment,
plus many other features that cannot exist in traditional binned
access to the precise time of arrival for every axle, MCReport lets
you analyse simple axle counts in a surprising variety of ways. You
can count axles, axle pairs or axles divided by a user-defined factor.
You can even count gaps for signal warrants and entering capacity
using MetroCount for axle counting, MCReport supports single, dual
and split sensor installations, allowing multi-lane surveys, with
Every report you produce with MCReport has an associated Profile.
Refine your reports by changing Profiles, then copy them to other
reports. Vary any combination of vehicle schemes or classes, speeds,
times, traffic flow direction, headway and other parameters. Profiles
remain active until changed or the report is closed.
for batch analysis
W ith MCReports optional new scripting language, you can fully automate
your data processing tasks. You can quickly construct scripts of simple,
yet powerful commands to batch process all your data with ease, greatly
enhancing your survey efficiency.
