I would suggest using aluminum and screws. Cover the edge of the carpet, don't just abut against the carpet.
I think that there will be enough give in the carpet that any nail through the poplar and carpet will wiggle loose. Also, "High Traffic" and "Poplar" don't really go together.
Use the right tool for the job.
