Traditional traffic counts allow for finding out mainly the number of vehicles. In Nodeon’s solution, the analysis provides much more extensive data on the traffic’s points of departure and its environmental burden.
Nodeon’s traffic flow measurement and analysis solution combines traditional registration identification technology and the data in the possession of public sector operators. Registration identification technology combined with vehicle registration data produces information on – in addition to the numbers and types of vehicles – what the traffic flow’s origin areas are by postal code, city and region.
When necessary, the analysis also provides data on the age, motive power, emissions (CO2) and, for example, the make and model distribution of the vehicles.
The resulting data enables an analysis on how much vehicles from different cities burden inbound traffic during morning rush hours, on the city districts in which private cars are the most popular, and on a vehicle’s carbon dioxide emissions. This data is ideally suited for the transportation planning of cities.
For the trade industry, on the other hand, Nodeon’s product provides three aspects of highly interesting key data: the customers’ origin areas by region, municipality and postal code as well as the durations and frequencies of customer visits.
Examining the departure areas of a single measuring point’s traffic flow on the municipal
Nodeon’s solutions are particularly useful as producers of the source data for transportation planning as well as in before-and-after measurements, the monitoring of long-term changes, and in the analysis of traffic concentrations as follows:
- An analysis of the traffic of a particular road (traffic volume, the traffic’s origin areas, frequency and wide-ranging classification according to vehicle type, motive power ratios and emissions, among other things)
- An analysis of the passing through traffic of a particular road (volume and composition of passing through traffic, i.e. the traffic’s departure areas, frequency and wide-ranging categorisation according to vehicle type, motive power ratios and emissions, among other things)
- The measurement and analysis of passing through traffic in larger areas with the help of multiple measuring points (for example, the simultaneous measurement of the entire traffic that passes through a city centre at several inbound and outbound points)
- An analysis of commuter traffic between cities on major traffic routes
- The precise measurement and profiling of transportation hubs, including commercial areas, employment areas and park-and-ride areas (origin areas, frequency, durations and categorisation of a traffic)
- The measurement and profiling of the visitor flows of shopping centres, travel destinations and events
