System Overview

The SLAB system is a highly accurate pedestrian counter that is designed specifically for hiking trails. The SLAB is Eco-Counter's first counting technology and remains the most reliable and accurate system on the market. The SLAB is sensitive to micro-variations in pressure and therefore can detect footsteps with great precision. Up to eight SLABs can connect to a single counting system allowing for great flexibility and adaptability to varying trail widths.

High Accuracy For Any Trail Width

The SLAB pedestrian counter is Eco-Counter's most scalable system. The system can consist of one to eight slab sensors, making the product adaptable to any trail width. In the case of wide, heavily-used paths, an array of SLABs make it possible to count several people at the same time while maintaining an extremely high accuracy.

Directional Counting

Using two rows of SLABs it is possible to measure the direction of travel in addition to counting each user.


  Stabilizes Soil

For hard-packed soil or soil susceptible to erosion, the SLAB can be delivered with a protective honeycomb overlay that stabilizes the soil and prevents the SLAB from being uncovered.

Installation available in artificial grounds
