Traffic surveys in Upper Silesia


In June 2023, another system of measuring stations for the continuous measurement of vehicle traffic (SCPR) on roads managed by the General Directorate for National Roads and Motorways Katowice was launched. Nine measuring stations equipped with NeuroCar LOOP – Model 4 – recording devices with built-in continuous quality control system were launched. The task of the SCPR stations is to monitor traffic at a given point (27/4) and provide aggregated measurement data on a daily basis.

The task was carried out within the framework of the public contract “Equipment, operation and service of SCPR stations on the territory of the Katowice Branch”, in which NeuroCar cooperates with Mark Electronics of Krakow. Under the contract, equipment was restored and/or installed in locations:

  • DK78 Kroczyce
  • DK46 Kolonia-Lisów
  • DK91 Siewierz
  • S52 Bielsko-Biała
  • DK81 Zbytków
  • DK78 Celina
  • DK86 Wojkowice
  • A4 The Meadows
  • S86 Katowice

Each location is equipped with the latest generation device – the NeuroCar LOOP Model 4 vehicle counter, which uses a system of inductive loops placed in the road surface to detect and classify vehicles. Analysis of signals from the loops is carried out in real time (on edge) based on a dedicated neural network model. In addition, an image provided by a reference camera is taken for each vehicle, making it possible to verify the quality of vehicle detection and classification in the data provided.
