Liverpool Smart Pedestrian Project
Thousands of people already walk and commute through Liverpool CBD every day, but the expanding University of Wollongong campus is expected to bring 7,000 extra students to the city. This, coupled with the city’s growth due to housing and office space is anticipated to deliver 30,000 extra pedestrian movements per day.
Add this to students about to be enrolled in a new Western Sydney University campus, an increase of the city centre population and the planning needs become obvious and urgent.
SMART Infrastructure researchers will develop a solution using machine learning to count people and cars at key location using IoT technologies.
Digital Living Lab collaborator, Meshed will be installing LoRaWAN gateways throughout Liverpool CBD with SMART researchers installing air quality sensors throughout the area.
