Peter Mildon, COO VivaCity was joined by Steve Gooding, RAC Foundation, Bahar Namaki Araghi, Arup and Karla Jakeman, Innovate UK on Thurs 21st Jan for this Fireside Chat on Active Travel and the opportunities ahead in 2021.

The chat started with an update by each of the speakers on what they are currently working on in terms of Active Travel initiatives. VivaCity COO Peter outlines how VivaCity technology and data is helping support local authorities in ‘before, during and after’ interventions in facilitating Active Travel. He goes on to talk about Smart Junctions, another large on-going piece of research as funded by Innovate UK. VivaCity AI technology via traffic sensors provides data to optimise traffic flow through junctions, as well as defining and linking the video based sensors to detect active travel modes such as vehicle type through those junctions.
