  • My dad got me hip to loop detectors (as they're sometimes called) when I was a kid. In some areas, like a quiet side street, perpendicular to a main road, if you drive back and forth over the loop detector, it can help make traffic lights trigger faster. Some people think flashing your headlights is the key, but that's just BS if there is a loop detector in the street. I was going to do a write-up about how to hack a left turn lane, but ElectroBOOM got it right. Just hover over that back-most sensor(s) and you can prioritize your left turn and make opposing traffic wait. Taught myself that one. Some light-weight non-ferrous motorcycles have trouble activating loop detectors, and having ridden some of these bikes, I've occasionally had to blow through red lights when the cycles wouldn't change after several minutes, or encourage the person behind me to move forward over one. I believe that old-skool ROworldr KipKay recommended mounting a strong magnet to the bottom of your bike, but I never tried that, and just bought beefier bikes instead. 😃

  • Back in the 70's, they cut rectangles in the streets the size of cars, lifted them up, put sensors under, and replaced them with concrete and tar, to seal them from the weather. We swore they were weight sensors, because they'd not detect a motorcycle, and they'd give you a ticket if you ran the red, even without traffic. Everyone was our to get me then, too!!

  • @ElectroBOOM , I was building one of these detectors for my thesis. Basically hooked up Colpitts oscillator output with street loop as inductance, feed it to microcontroller counter input through some conditioning, and efectively measuring frequency deviation instead of amplitude. It typically runs at about 80kHz (+/- 50kHz) and it shifts frequency about 2kHz when car passes. But it's sometimes done also trough amplitude.
