Survey Options

Detecting axles with rubber pneumatic tube is still a cost-effective traffic sensing method, especially for short-term surveys. Pneumatic tubes are cheap, accurate and reliable, and operate effectively over a huge range of environmental conditions.

Survey Options Description
Volume Volume surveys purely measure the number of vehicles utilising a road. This usage is broken down by time intervals.
Speed Speed surveys track the speeds of vehicles broken down by time intervals.
Classification Classification surveys provide information relating to vehicle types using the road.
Platoon Platoon surveys measure the speeds of groups of vehicles broken down by time intervals.

TCS for Surveys is capable of surveying single lane roads through to complex multi-laned freeways and highways. The coverage is wide and varied.

All personnel are trained and by following the required Quality and OH&S systems in place they are equipped to handle all the related on the road hazards to ensure all jobs are conducted in a professional and a safe manner.

Accurate Detection

Throughout the world, all detailed vehicle class schemes are based on axles. Many systems have tried inductive, optical or magentic methods. Only axle detectors, however, give precise speeds and wheel positions over the entire vehicle spectrum, from motorcycles through to heavy vehicles.

TCS for Surveys uses state of the art traffic logging hardware along with powerful software and together with our experts TCS for Surveys will deliver quality data on time. TCS for Surveys is able to generate many kinds of reports from simple to sophisticated reports through many delivery mechanisms.
