Cutting edge technology for unprecedented insight.

Using advanced machine learning techniques combined with state-of-the-art edge processing, anonymous, accurate detection and classification of transport modes and urban movement are possible, all from the same sensor.

  • Classified Counts of 9 transport modes
  • Vehicle path
  • Median journey time
  • Speed
  • Social distancing (anonymous)
  • Sensor image (blurred)

  • Live classified counts & turning movements at key junctions.
  • Understanding pedestrian footfall & desire lines on high streets.

Building works

2
  • Measure impact of roadworks on flows.
  • Quantifying and classifying HGV impact on traffic

Canal paths

3
  • Utilisation of key active travel spaces.
  • Justify government & maintenance grants.

Cycle lanes

4
  • Quantifying cyclist traffic before installation to justify spend.
  • Understanding behaviour during & after works.

Park & ride

5
  • Demand-side behaviour change through queue alerts on VMS.
  • Promoting uptake of Park & Ride facilities.

Tunnels

6
  • Identifying safety-critical events such as stopped vehicles.
  • Providing real-time alerts for abnormal behaviour.

Motorway signs

7
  • Live traffic information integrated with VMS.
  • Real-time prediction and queue alerting.

Wheelchairs

8
  • Detection of wide range of unusual classes, including wheelchair.
  • New classes can be added on request.

Trains, trams & metros

9
  • Counting boarding & alighting flows at stations.
  • Identifying transit vehicles in other vehicular flows.

Congestion

10
  • Real-time, low-latency alerts for queues.
  • Journey time monitoring to demonstrate impacts.

Traffic lights

11
  • Futureproof data collection for MOVA / SCOOT.
  • Real-time through-flow measures

Rural landscape

12
  • Understanding utilisation of minor roads and junctions.
  • Exploring active travel across rural networks.

Smart junction

13
  • Traffic signal optimisation going beyond MOVA / SCOOT.
  • Prioritise different modes, and optimise for air quality.

Pedestrian zones

14
  • Understand pedestrian desire lines before implementation.
  • Understand behaviour of cyclists & other vehicles.

Transport cordons

15
  • Gather detailed origin-destination data around a central cordon.
  • Understand journey times across the town/city centre.

Roadworks

16
  • Assess impact of roadworks on journey times.
  • Optimise time-of-day and duration of roadworks based on traffic patterns.

 

Privacy-by-design.

At Vivacity, privacy is at the heart of everything we do. We believe strongly that the future of the Smart City has to be citizen-centric, and that keeping citizens’ data safe and private is critical to the success of this technology. As such, we have designed our solutions from the ground up to guarantee the privacy of every citizen, utilising privacy-by-design principles. Our sensors do not collect personal data, and none of our clients can use our technologies to gather any kind of personal data, ever.
