Clearview’s history began in 1974 with the first fully electronic traffic counter which enabled direct data transfer to a computer. Nowadays, our Count and Classification product range includes solutions for vehicle, pedestrian and cycle counts with wireless and Lidar based detection available alongside the traditional loop-based technology.
The Insight Data Management platform is a scalable hosted service underpinning a range of targeted applications for traffic monitoring. Insight shares several tools across all applications for ease of administration and the flexibility to deploy multiple applications and modules.
Roadside devices can be managed with ease using our secure web based interface. Insight Count and Classify supports the full range of Clearview Intelligence M600 and M700 series of count classifiers.
Insight Count and Classify collects data via GSM, GPRS and wired Ethernet communications. The integrated server based dial-up application provides for user defined schedules, manual dial-up, status updates and event logs. As data is received several control measures can be applied to verify the quality and validity of the data.
The Connex Active is an accurate real-time Pedestrian and Bicycle Classifier for active travel detection and analysis. It utilises the latest LIDAR technologies to provide a non-invasive detection and classification solution for pedestrians and bicycles.
Designed for permanent use alongside foot and cycle paths as a solar or mains powered solution within a single unit. The detection range is configurable up to 7 metres without the need for an additional receiver unit as seen in traditional solutions of this type.
The use of LIDAR technology enables the creation of virtual lanes based on the distance of the object detected, this can be used to understand if potential conflicts are occurring on segregated pedestrian and cycle paths.
An optional 4G or ethernet communications module provides the ability to deliver real-time or scheduled data to Clearview’s Insight® Data Management platform or to any other system using open standards data formats and protocols.
The integrated contact closure and logic controller means the unit can be used for active travel safety schemes and data collection all in a single solution.
Connex Traffic is the latest generation of automatic traffic counter designed to provide a high degree of flexibility and accuracy.
Based on Clearview’s Connex Modular Hardware platform, Connex Traffic offers both inductive loop and wireless sensor options for real-time count and classification, enabling deployment in a variety of environments and applications.
Designed from the ground up, for ease of integration utilising open industry standard data formats and communication protocols, the base system provides 16 inductive loops and two internal module slots for different combinations of communications or sensors. Connex Traffic incorporates machine learning technology to provide a higher degree of classification when using inductive loops for data collection.
Communication options include support for the latest low power LTE-M and NB-IoT technologies alongside 2/4G, PoE and RS232/485.
Connex Traffic provides additional functionality to enable the intelligent control of external devices such as Variable Message Signs (VMS) via the General Purpose I/O port and Programmable Logic Controller. This combination of external control and logic enables Connex Traffic to form the backbone of innovative solutions to monitor and inform of potential hazards such as queuing vehicles, turning vehicles and tailgating.
The M680 is the latest generation of traffic count/classification device based on inductive loop technology. Available in a variety of configurations and supporting a number of additional interface options, the M680 offers unparalleled flexibility from a single platform. From monitoring of a single lane traffic through to 8 lane motorways with both piezo sensors and inductive loops, the M680 is a versatile platform that support a vast range of applications including vehicle in/out counts from car parks, to comprehensive traffic flow monitoring through vehicle count and vehicle classification. The M680 captures vehicle count as well as Vehicle by Vehicle (VbV) data including class, direction, gap, speed, length, axle count, axle separation and headway.
Thanks to its robust design and IP67 rated enclosure, the M680 delivers unrivalled levels of accuracy, reliability and ruggedness meaning you can be confident of year round operation. The M680 can collect data on each vehicle for scheduled, manual or real-time delivery over packet-based GPRS communications. Over 30 pre-defined axle and loop classification schemes including the 26- class UKNCC30 means the M680 can detect and classify a wide range of vehicle types from bicycles through to articulated lorries.
The switch I/O card option can be used to control external devices such as Variable Messaging Signs, ANPR cameras, Barriers and Gates or any device that accepts contact closure input, ideal for use in car park management applications.
The M100 wireless vehicle detection system utilises a compact magnetometer sensor that is deployed in the centre of a traffic lane at the same point at which you would install inductive loops, but without the cost, invasiveness and traffic disruption associated with the slot cutting, ducting and trenching work needed to install and maintain loops on a regular basis.
Its unique design allows the vehicle detection sensor to be buried beneath the wearing course of the road up to a depth of 175mm, eliminating the need for the product to be removed from the road during resurfacing.
The vehicle detection events from the sensor are relayed back to the traffic signal controller via the system’s in-built low powered two way radio communications. Despite its compact size and weight, the M100 has an impressive 8-10 year battery life. Since there’s no trenching or ducting involved in the installation, the slimline profile of the magnetometer sensors means that they can be installed quickly and easily, minimising disruption to local traffic and reducing the costs of traffic management. The system is Type approved to UK specification TR2512A and approved to Highways England standard MCH1529. It is the only such system to be compatible with all types and makes of MIDAS outstations and urban traffic light systems such as SCOOT, MOVA and System D.
