Users draw a line on a road or parking lot and assign a positive and negative direction to it.for large roads users can draw a line for each lane. The system counts cars, trucks, motorbikes, and bikes independently. Cities and states collect traffic data all over the country all the time using far less efficient means. With two camera streams, BASS provides data on cumulative traffic, traffic by vehicle type, and even performs directional counting. Data on cars entering business parking lots is useful for understanding what portion of customers entering your store are coming as a unit.
