eTube bicycle detection system

Traffic sensor system with adhesive sensors
and unique integrated power supply

eTube Platte Koffer

The wireless eTube sensor system is an cost-effective tire detection technology and is used today, for example, to record bicycles.

Completely wireless

The advantage of this system is the wireless communication between the self-powered sensor and the receiver station. The innovative adhesive technology reduces the installation effort at the road surface to a minimum.
Modern on-board GPRS wireless communication enables the user to access the data remotely without being on site.

Energy supply - environmentally friendly

The low power design of the eTube receiver station in combination with the solar power option extends the eTube data collection capabilities to 365 days per year.

Your advantages

etube SDR

Flexible and precise
The system is able to monitor up to 15 eTube sensors simultaneously. Accurate axle detection even at high volume traffic.

GPRS Upgrade

Simple and sustainable
You can update your system at any time. Your eTube system is always up to date via GPRS. Install the latest firmware or book new functions.

Our eTube bicycle detection system in action


We measure for you

We collect comprehensive data for you or support you during your data collection project. We are able to quickly and reliably count bicycles at many different data collection points simultaneously. Our 100 mobile data collection devices and our experienced team allow us to master even the most difficult problems, nationally or internationally.

Here is one example of a comprehensive data collection project:



CLIENTS Government of Belgium - German-speaking Community



Project description


The Vennbahn bike path, which runs along one of the longest disused railway tracks in Europe, takes visitors on a journey through Germany, Belgium, and Luxembourg. The path starts in Aachen, travels through the High Fens, and ends in Troisvierges.

Our eTube bike and SDR bike+ systems are set up at five data collection points to monitor bike traffic in both directions on an 80-km stretch of the Vennbahn.

All the stations are solar powered, in order to guarantee operation year-round.

Both systems send the data collected via GPRS to the web-based www.myTrafficdata.com application to allow for daily analyses of the data.
