Reno A&E to Host Webinar on Bicycle Detection & Differentiation Using Prefabricated Loops

Please join Reno A&E on Tuesday, October 18 at 8 a.m. PDT / 11 a.m. EDT for an informative, 45-minute webinar, “Bicycle Detection & Differentiation Using Prefabricated Loops.” The Reno A&E Bicycle Detection & Differentiation System combines a C-series inductive loop detector, using enhanced / patented algorithms and prefabricated inductive loops for new and upgraded intersections. Co-presented by Reno A&E’s Matt Zinn, Sales Manager, and Tom Sutula, Technical and Applications Sales Specialist, this webinar will illustrate how the system performs and how traffic engineering professionals can benefit by detecting and providing safe passage time for bicycles, without compromising operational efficiency of the intersection.
