A recent set of artificial intelligence (AI) surveys have been undertaken by Bicycle Network in the City of Port Phillip (CoPP) at several priority intersections, to collect important bicycle, pedestrian and vehicle movement data for transport planning and decision making.
The surveys detect and categorise road users when they enter the camera field of view. Bicycle Network’s AIRS (Artificial Intelligence Road Surveys) is able to count road users’ volume, as well as tracks their paths along ‘tracelines’, and measure their travel speeds.
Collected at six key intersections identified in South Melbourne, the data plays a key role in understanding the priority and movements of bike riders through intersections and where potential areas of conflict may arise.
These autonomous, AI-based road surveys are the newest addition to Bicycle Network’s suite of data collection services, which includes the long-established Super Tuesday commuter and Super Sunday recreational counts, and fully customised manual active transport surveys. To find out more information about these services, or to book a free AIRS trial, visit our website and submit an enquiry.
The data that is presented to clients through reports and spreadsheets is anonymised and relates to population samples with no individualised user information. Upon submission of the report data to the client, the footage is deleted from the online server no later than 60 days after the completion of the job.
