Smart Solution for People Counting on Walking Trails

Walking trails offer tranquil escapes for nature enthusiasts, fitness enthusiasts, and those seeking peaceful strolls amidst scenic beauty. As these trails become increasingly popular, it becomes essential for trail managers and city municipalities to gather valuable insights into visitor footfall.


Implementing a people counting system equipped with the SensMax TAC-B 4G radar sensor and SPS20 solar power system can significantly enhance trail management, optimize resource allocation, and elevate the overall trail experience for visitors.

Why are People Counting on Walking Trails Crucial?

  • Informed Resource Allocation: Understanding the number of visitors on walking trails helps trail managers allocate resources effectively. Real-time data on footfall patterns allows them to deploy park rangers, maintain trails, and manage facilities efficiently.
  • Enhancing Safety Measures: Trail managers can identify peak hours with accurate footfall data, ensuring that walking trails are adequately staffed to ensure visitor safety and comfort during busy periods.
  • Improved Trail Planning: Footfall statistics enable trail managers to assess the popularity of specific sections of the trail. This data helps them plan expansions or develop alternative routes to ease congestion in high-traffic areas.
  • Data-Driven Decision Making: With reliable data on visitor trends, trail managers can make well-informed decisions to improve trail amenities, enhance visitor experiences, and preserve the natural environment.


The SensMax TAC-B 4G radar sensor is a cutting-edge solution designed specifically for outdoor people counting. Leveraging mmWave technology, this sensor offers precise and reliable footfall data, even in challenging weather conditions. The sensor's key benefits include:

  • Wide Detection Area: Covering up to 100 square meters with a 120° viewing angle, the sensor accurately captures the movement of pedestrians and cyclists on walking trails.
  • Real-Time Data Delivery: Equipped with 4G connectivity, the sensor sends footfall data to the central server in real-time. Trail managers can access up-to-the-minute visitor insights and make timely decisions.
  • Privacy Compliance: The TAC-B 4G sensor operates without filming individuals, ensuring complete GDPR and privacy law compliance while providing valuable trail management data.
  • Bi-Directional Counting: The sensor supports bi-directional counting, enabling managers to differentiate between visitors entering and exiting the walking trail. This feature offers a comprehensive understanding of footfall traffic.
  • Outdoor design: The sensor works in any weather and light conditions, even in complete darkness. 


The SensMax SPS20 solar power system is the perfect companion for the TAC-B 4G sensor to ensure uninterrupted operation and power supply in remote or off-grid locations. Key benefits of the SPS20 solar power system include:
Sustainable Power Source: Harnessing solar energy, the SPS20 system generates electricity to power the TAC-B 4G sensor, making it an eco-friendly and sustainable solution.
Easy Installation: The all-in-one design integrates a solar panel, smart charging controller, and LiFePO4 rechargeable battery into a compact package. This plug-and-play setup simplifies installation and reduces setup time.
Weatherproof and Durable: The system's IP67 protection ensures it can withstand harsh weather conditions, making it suitable for outdoor installations in any environment.

Implementing a people counting system on walking trails using the SensMax TAC-B 4G sensor and SPS20 solar power system unlocks a world of data-driven insights for trail managers. Walking trails can be transformed into smart, sustainable, and visitor-friendly spaces by understanding visitor patterns, optimizing resource allocation, and enhancing safety measures. With this innovative solution, trail managers can provide unforgettable experiences while preserving the natural beauty of our cherished walking trails.
