Bike Detection System (Thursday)

Bike Detection System (Thursday)

Take a behind-the-scenes look at advanced bike detection for signal actuation — a first-of-its-kind system that uses Smartphones for virtual detection. The tour will travel by bike across the Congress Avenue Bridge and along one of Austin’s new protected multi-use paths to tour the Traffic Management Center to see how KITS (the software that runs the virtual bike detection software) helps recognize cyclists and manage traffic.

Led by:
Renee Orr, Project Manager, Austin Transportation
Kevin Sweat, Public Works Engineer
