About Us

NOMAD Traffic Counting Systems are a leading provider of automated pedestrian and vehicle counting equipment for the urban and rural environment. Our customers include state bodies, local authorities, government departments  and our clients span the tourism, entertainment, leisure and local development sectors.

This family run business was established in 2012 by husband and wife team, Allen and Julie McAdam. The business was born out of a need in their already established rural development consultancy business to quantify the impact of investments being made by public sector bodies in walkways, parks and visitor attractions.

Since the business inception and due to demand the business has expanded to offer services to town centres, forest parks, greenways and community centres.

Since its establishment  the company  has its custom designed state-of-the-art covert counting devices installed at a wide range of  sites throughout Ireland, north and south, providing invaluable up to date traffic data to  clients at the click of a mouse.  There are no data protection issues with this technology as no personal data is recorded.

Currently, our visitor counters provide invaluable information from tourist attractions and visitor centres, town centres, public parks and walkways, trade shows and festivals, canals and waterways, greenways and blueways etc. We can provide you, the valued client, with the complete counting package and we can tailor installations to your specific needs.

Our unique sensor technology can be used outdoors or indoors and can be calibrated to record hourly, daily, weekly and monthly statistical data. Information is then analysed using cloud based software and reports can be supplied in either electronic or hard copy format. Clients also have unique access to their statistics from our database via smart phone, tablet, laptop or PC.

At Nomad Traffic Counting Systems we pride ourselves in our accurate and efficient cost effective counting systems and particularly in our unparalleled one-to-one customer service.  Got a question? Be assured we’re always just a telephone call away.

Company Directors

Allen McAdam

A highly creative, energetic and hard-working individual with over twenty five years of progressive experience in the rural development, agri business and local development sectors Allen,  saw the unmet need in the marketplace for affordable, reliably, robust footfall counting equipment.

Through his consultancy work carrying out value for money audits and project evaluations he found it difficult to get access to data to justify investments in infrastructure and carry our cost benefits analysis and from humble beginnings  Nomad was born.

Allen is married to Julie and they have four children.
