Reno A&E Bicycle Differentiation System Provides Safe Passage Time through Intersections

The Model C-1101-B and Model C-1201-B inductive loop vehicle detectors offer increased processing that provides the capability of signature recognition enabling the vehicle detector to detect all vehicles with the added ability of differentiating bicycles from all other vehicles including differentiating bicycles from motor-scooters and motorcycles as well. Caltrans or NEMA type models allow traffic engineering professionals to detect and provide safe passage time for bicycles without compromising the intersections operating efficiency.  To learn more about RAE’s Bicycle Differentiation System, contact RAE Sales Manager Matt Zinn at mattz@renoae.com.
