Traffic counting Teufenerstrasse St.Gallen

Connected traffic counters for smart city applications

The Parametric TCR traffic counters are specifically designed for permanent installations in cities and along bicycle paths but can also be used for mobile applications as well as temporary measurement tasks.

One counter for both directions

The TCR radar counters are based on radar angle measurement with two receiving antennas. This allows traffic from both directions to be detected and evaluated simultaneously.

The data is cached and cyclically forwarded via an LPWAN radio link (LoRaWAN™). The transmission interval can be freely selected between 5 minutes and 24 hours. This makes the devices suitable for both statistical and real-time applications.

Simple mounting and setup

The radar counters are mounted to the direction of traffic movement. The device can be mounted directly on a wall or other surface as well as on street lamps using the MT40 pole mount. With the MT40 bracket, the device can be tilted downwards.

Parametric delivers their systems pre-configured and tested so that only the distance to the lanes needs to be set once.

Due to the LoRaWAN®connection we can adjust the settings for you (remote maintenance).

Multiple power supply options

The devices are available in different versions:

  • 12V connection for operation with external power supply or battery
  • 230V connection for direct operation on street lamps with permanent power supply
  • Integrated battery for 24h operation on street lamps with night switching
  • Solar powered

Various solar panels, brackets and cables are available as accessories, so we can find a suitable power supply solution for you.

Real-time data with LoRaWAN® connection

With autonomous operation and rugged, weatherproof construction, the radar counter can be permanently mounted while providing reliable traffic volume data. The devices are always online thanks to the integrated wireless LoRaWAN® technology. The counts are regularly transmitted to a network server. Thus, the data does not have to be read out on site.


  • Monitor and analyze traffic load
  • Calculate the parking space occupancy by measuring the entries
  • Smart Streelights (Adaptive brightness adjustment for LED street lights)

All in one package

Parametric offers ready-made solutions including the sensors, LoRaWAN® gateways and web-based analysis software. Various interfaces are available for integration into an existing IT system.
