Creating urban walkable environments requires a myriad of functions that allow the City to communicate with the area. The combination of information gathering, coupled with information disseminating allows flexibility for all times of the day and evening. Based on traffic, surface transit systems, pedestrian counting, cyclist activity, weather, sound levels, air quality and other factors, critical and helpful information can be used by those passing by. All the data collected can be harvested to predict future needs.
For our solution, we propose to engage Davra systems to provide the dashboard, data analysis and triggers to the Intellistreets platform. Davra will couple all of the citie's available transportation information an make it available at site-specific locations. in the case of this pilot, one site in Grand Rapids would be used.
