London Borough of Camden
In the new digital world, there is a strong drive to make better use of connected devices and sensors to monitor on-street activities such as traffic flow, footfall and parking. Being able to offer services which have live updates, particularly for traffic flow, parking availability and air quality is seeing a rise in demand, alongside traditional long term traffic observations to assess the impact of activities like roadworks or crisis management.
Camden already has a developed open data portal which provides access to over 400 data sets from Camden’s services, along with a map tool. Being able to offer live on-street data is a challenge which is restricted by the number of data sources available.
Additionally, Camden has a strong relationship with its Business Improvement Districts, many of whom are looking at being able to utilise sensors and data to provide analysis of customer/visitor movement volumes and habits.
Whilst many councils have a handful of sensors, and portals to display and analyse the gathered data, lack of infrastructure and proliferation of sensors reduces their effectiveness. In order to make best use of sensor data then there needs to be a large pool to analyse along with the supporting connectivity infrastructure.
