Equipment

The equipment we use for hose, induction loop and video data collection are the Full IRD TRS, the IRD Mini TRS, IRD ACE and the Miovision VCU.

The loop and hose data can be volume only or can include speed and vehicle type (classification).  The data can be presented for each vehicle separately (vehicle by vehicle) or summarized in time bins.

VCU

Miovision’s portable Video data Collection system Units (VCU) automates traffic data collection and report generation for many traffic study types.  A list of study types can be found on the Services Page.  The video is analyzed by Video Analysis Software (VAS) to produce the traffic data that is made available to our clients as an editable online report or submitted as an electronic report to the client’s specifications.

The Control Box Built-in battery provides up to 24 hours of recording time.  The added VCU Power Pack extends the battery life of the Control Box to 72hrs.

The equipment is designed to be installed by one technician.  This video shows the first time we set up a VCU.  There were four of us onsite as it was a demonstration set out.  With only the manual to guide us, our first install and sample data collection went well.
