System Overview

Eco-Counter's Pneumatic TUBE counter is the perfect solution for temporary (one-day to one-month) bike counting. The TUBE counter is extremely versatile (it can be used on- or off-street) and mobile (installation takes less than 30 minutes). The system uses a set of two tubes that are placed perpendicular to traffic flow along the pavement. The system simultaneously measures the speed of each user and the distance between the front and back wheels. With this information, the TUBE counter is able to distinguish bicycles from motorized vehicles in mixed traffic, extract directional data, and accurately count the number of cyclists in a group.


  • Mobile: simple and quick installation
  • Turn-key solution
  • Measures the direction of travel
  • Seamless data transmission to our software
  • Battery powered – 10-year battery life
  • Works in all weather conditions

 Selective Counting on Shared Roads

In Vancouver, Canada, more than 30 TUBE counters are used to generate short-term counts along bicycle boulevards (traffic calmed, local streets with shared lanes). Eco-Counter's Pneumatic TUBE system is perfect for this application as it can count cyclists in mixed-traffic with an extremely high accuracy. The system is a cost-effective solution for monitoring along an entire bike network since each counter can be deployed at 10-25 locations in a single year.

Precise for Groups of Cyclists

In Portland, Oregon, two TUBE counters are used to monitor cyclists traveling along the Hawthorne Bridge. The system operates with high-precision, counting cyclists even in densely-packed groups. The Hawthorne system counts more than 1.5 million bike trips per year and displays the data in real-time on an Eco-TOTEM. Eco-Counter provides a thinner (mini) tube for off-street applications. Mini-TUBES maximize cyclist comfort and reduce the cost of tube replacements.

Turn-key Solution

Thanks to its unique design, the TUBE counter can house the complete counting system (logger, sensor and battery) in its stainless steel housing. The steel housing is vandal proof and the components inside are completely waterproof. The system has a ten-year battery life with manual Bluetooth data transmission. Like all Eco-Counters, the TUBE counter wirelessly transfers data to the Eco-Counter server where it can be easily accessed using Eco-Visio, our specialized online data analysis software. The TUBE counter, like all Eco-Counters, is a complete turn-key solution.
