Outcome of Expression of Interest: Not shortlisted

Councils have a variety of needs relating to movement around a location. E.g.:

  • Impact of pedestrian flows in a town centre during planned work closures
  • Understanding pedestrian flows on busy footways, junctions, places of interest and transport hubs so that we can better design pedestrian spaces on our streets
  • Understanding and designing pedestrian flows at event locations to enable the safe movement of people.

For example, Southern Gas is intending to close Rye Lane to motor vehicles and cyclists for a year, which may affect the 7.4mil entries/exit a year for Peckham Rye station, with pedestrian flows peaking at 34,000 a day. However we currently have no really accurate and large scale means of understanding and determining the impact of the Rye Lane closure and how to redirect pedestrian flows to minimise disruption. Data is currently collected via simple counters, cameras or researchers with clipboards.

We want to understand how and whether a visual model for locations, such as town centres, combined with smart sensors/cameras and different data sources, such as location and movement data (e.g. journey origin/destination, purpose of journey), TFL, events, spend and council data can help us make better decisions.
