Mini-BlueTOAD packages the advanced traffic monitoring technology of BlueTOAD in a small form factor that discretely measures travel times, road speeds and route behaviors for road network planning and performance analysis.
Mini-BlueTOAD is designed for situations where "live" real-time data is not required, but enables detections for later analysis.
Measuring less than six inches square, Mini-BlueTOAD attaches to virtually any existing roadside infrastructure.
Its battery powers continuous data collection for up to two weeks without a recharge. An optional small-form solar panel, about the size of an open magazine, can recharge the battery for longer studies.
Data is stored on a Micro SD card, and downloaded through a simple client interface for analysis through BlueTOAD’s market leading travel time and routing algorithms.
• Standalone Post-Processed Data Analysis
• Portable Deployments
• Easy Installation & Setup
• Immediate Startup & Data Collection
Once data is collected, Mini-BlueTOAD information is downloaded from the field, brought back to the office, and then processed through the TrafficCast CyberCenter, using the proven BlueTOAD traveler information algorithms. Agencies access their archived data via a secure web-based dashboard, and can generate a variety of analytic tools, including
Origin/Destination Reports to verify routes vehicles are utilizing through a corridor.
Travel Times Reports to determine reduc- tion in delay.
Comparison Reports to compare the travel time on signalized intersections.
Level of Service Reports to evaluate vehicle demand between origins and destinations.
Smoothed Speeds Reports to monitor and archive speeds on an arterial.
Ease of integration and compatibility with existing traffic data management systems makes the Mini- BlueTOAD system the best choice for data gathering projects requiring temporary traffic monitoring. Whether you need data-gathering for a construction project or an immediate need for a Before and After study, the Mini-BlueTOAD provides a cost-effective approach to gathering travel time and origin>destination analysis data.
Mini-BlueTOAD is the non-intrusive traffic sensor that enables critical, cost-effective data collection and traffic monitoring for the planning, modeling and performance measurement of road networks.
To more effectively support planning and operations of the road network, Mini-BlueTOAD enables temporary monitoring of arterial road speeds, exit/entrance patterns, backup queues and other conditions. For example:

Mini-BlueTOAD extends the BlueTOAD product line to offer a consistent format of accurate traffic monitoring for both operations in real-time and requirements for passive data collection. The original BlueTOAD configuration offers completely independent operation; BlueTOAD/CONNECT is an Ethernet-based BlueTOAD Card that slides directly into any standard Detector rack found in modern roadside signal cabinets.
All BlueTOAD products are non-intrusive to roadway infrastructure and cost-effective relative to legacy technologies that gather analogous data. And Mini-BlueTOAD shows that good things can also come in small packages.
