The first meter post, in Apeldoorn, was put into service in 2008 at one of the town’s main cycling routes. This one only showed the numbers of cyclists passing daily and annually. The improved version now operational near Deventer and Twello shows considerably more data. In addition to time and temperature it also displays the actual speed of the passing cyclist – or moped rider. As well as the resultant travel time to the next destination. The data are gathered by means of a loop in the road surface.
