Government is committed to Transforming our Cities to deliver better intra-city transport whilst improving air quality and reducing carbon emissions. Smarter and better management of transport networks and public spaces has an important part to play in this. People centric design can and will deliver a healthier environment in our cities.
High quality walking and cycling environments are an inexpensive solution to combat poverty in mobility and preserve access to economic centres. More sustainable mobility equates to fewer moving and parked cars, and more space for economic activity. Good design can and should be based on fine grained analysis of movement patterns.
Cities & Towns need good data to manage their High Streets , encourage the flow of people and deliver a high level of service for their citizens. Machine Vision is the most effective way of capturing the data required by retail and transport professionals to assess performance and drive improvement.
We can provide the data to support sophisticated modelling techniques to develop a long term program of built environment changes designed to increase active mobility. Our real time data collection sensors can monitor footfall 24/7.
We have experience in deploying people and traffic sensors to track people walking and cycling and also the speed and volume of motor traffic. We can integrate information on level of service into GIS applications.
We can offer the same level of detailed information on pedestrian and cycle flows as has tradditionally been available for motor traffic. Data can be assembled from a single accurate verifiable source to cover all modes of transport through a junction or public space.
We're experts in the use of Machine Vision to extract data on movement and flow in the built environment. We specialise in video surveys and permanent installations which capture data on complex problems. The firms work has received national press coverage in Guardian Cities for our innovative work with The City of London Corporation. We have installed permanent equipment Monitoring footfall on Newcastle's Northumberland Street, one of the busiest shopping streets in Europe.
