Image Sensing Systems takes bicycle detection to the next level


Image Sensing Systems, the developer of above-ground detection and information management solutions for the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) sector, announced last week the release of Autoscope software version 10.5.0, which includes the new Autoscope Cyclescope bicycle differentiation and detection feature.

Cyclescope enhances bicycle detection capability and adds the ability to differentiate between bicycles and motorized vehicles as they approach the junction.  A significant advantage to Cyclescope is that it doesn’t require additional roadway markings, product purchases or equipment installations or maintenance. “The Autoscope Cyclescope feature takes bicycle detection to the next level.  It can detect and differentiate bicycles made of any material on any approaching lane at no additional cost to the partner, customer, or end user,” said Keith Hofkens, Product Manager at Image Sensing Systems.

The Cyclescope feature allows traffic engineers to offer bicycle timings in their traffic control strategy with minimal changes to the junction control configuration, without having to make changes to the traffic controller.  Agencies can configure the data collection to help them demonstrate the success of their bicycle-friendly programs.

Cyclescope is available in many Autoscope technology products including Autoscope Pn-520, Autoscope Pn-500 detector cards, Autoscope Encore, Autoscope Duo, Autoscope Solo models and Autoscope RackVision Terra and can be easily implemented into your current installations.
