To help simplify picking which tools make sense for you to use while collecting transportation data, we’ve put together The Data Collection Tool Selector. The matrix shows the type of data collected vs. the kind of facility, with the appropriate devices in each cell.
The vehicle’s loaded, you set up 14 of your 15 count locations and… you run out of gear! You were minutes away from wrapping up the workday, but now you have to drive back to the office. Or, if you’re lucky, run into a nearby hardware store to get what you need. We’ve all been there.
One really exciting and enjoyable aspect of Transportation Engineering is the constant influx of new technologies. For our projects, we are continually examining how to improve our data, our analyses, and ultimately, our recommendations to make the world a safer place.
