TRANSPORT SURVEYS AND DATA
AIRS is an automated survey method that uses AI technology to capture pedestrian, bicycle and vehicle traffic data. It provides real-time solutions to traffic management, resource allocation and urban planning decisions.Information Booklet
What is AIRS?
Traffic and transport data surveys
Bicycle Network is offering Artificial Intelligence Road Surveys (AIRS) as part of our suite of complementary Super Count surveys.
AIRS autonomously detects and classifies roads users from video footage, and provides insights into how they interact within road environments. Developed by Vivacity Labs, the technology uses cameras, sensors and machine learning to detect and classify up to nine road user types in a given field of view with 97% accuracy.
From active travel volumes to motor traffic congestion and movements, AIRS can be uniquely tailored to meet transport planning, monitoring and evaluation objectives.
Please note: This video is a demonstration of how the AI software performs and is not utilising the data privacy mode, which can be used to automatically anonymise data.
What data can AIRS provide?
AIRS can provide decision makers with the traffic and active travel data they need to make evidence-based decisions.
Once the AI-technology has identified and classified all users in the field of vision of the sensor or camera, Bicycle Network’s analysts can provide reports on three key areas.
Data privacy mode
Road user privacy is essential, so Bicycle Network is offering a software and hardware package that was created with privacy-by-design principles to ensure that personal data is not compromised.
This package collects footage, processes it on-board and then sends anonymised data to a secure cloud server. Footage is discarded once data is sent to the cloud, thereby ensuring the privacy of road users.
For more information on the intricacies of how the privacy mode works, please review the booklet and submit an enquiry below to schedule a conference call.
This step-by-step guide is designed to assist urban planners, architects and transport specialists on how the AIRS program can provide real time solutions, validate decision making and create active cities.Information Booklet
