Sensors, Cameras, and Data: Improving Safety and Mobility

Seattle’s Mercer Corridor project is transforming what was once known as the Mercer Mess into a rebuilt corridor that calms the daily street fight among modes for space, pace and safety, and strengthens multimodal connections between neighborhoods. See how efficiency, safety and mobility are being enhanced by intelligent, sensor-based infrastructure, including adaptive signal controls, real-time transit information, and video detection that differentiates bicycles from vehicles. On this tour, we’ll also hear from the vendor and city staff about video detection’s added value to collect vehicle and bicycle counts, and how video detection can be leveraged to improve infrastructure management and prioritize investment decisions for today’s transportation systems.

This WalkShop will be by bike on Tuesday, and by foot on Wednesday.
