Reno A&E Bicycle Detection System Maximizes Accuracy

Reno A&E now offers a bicycle detection system that combines a C-series detector with modified algorithms and prefabricated inductive loops for new and upgraded intersections. The Reno A&E (model C-1101-B and model C-1201-B) loop detectors identify all vehicles, including the ability to differentiate bicycles from all other vehicles, as well as scooters and motorcycles.

Both models, (CALTRANS or NEMA type), allow traffic engineering professionals to detect and provide safe passage time for bicycles without compromising operational efficiency of the intersection. Bicycle detection using prefabricated loops maximizes detection accuracy and cost effectiveness, while avoiding specific lighting, weather and maintenance challenges experienced with many types of above ground detection technologies. To learn more about Reno A&E’s Bicycle Detection System, contact Reno A&E Director of Sales Carl Zabel at
