In the past few years we've seen the arrival micromobilty, ridesharing services as well as a shift towards a more delivery centric society – all of which have sparked a rapid growth in curb-space demand and fundamentally changed how vehicles use it. As a result, street traffic has gotten worse from vehicles looking for more short-term parking and ignoring local ordinances. Automotus video analytics helps cities better manage how these mobility & delivery companies use their curb space, mitigating their impact on traffic while still empowering personal mobility.
Video analytics collect data and share real-time availability of curb space. This can be broken down for specific vehicle types from buses and passenger vehicles to ride-sharing zones and delivery trucks. More efficiently managing curb space by sharing availability data with drivers and ensuring compliance in vehicle specific zones helps reduce the impact curb side demand has on traffic and gets people to their destinations faster.
This also extends to the usage of scooters and bikes, ensuring that administrators understand the volume they have on their street and how they're being used. Better managing these micro-mobility services also helps cities craft more well-informed policies to ensure that these devices aren't flooding the streets beyond what's necessary to meet the needs of their citizens.
