Making Monitoring Meaningful: Planning Transport in the Covid Era16th February 2021 / Posted by Joshua West
We’re gearing up for our next exciting Lunchtime Launch event Making Monitoring Meaningful: Planning Transport in the Covid Era, where we will be discussing innovations in monitoring and transport planning, and how we can turn data into something meaningful! Over the past year we have seen a growing interest and scrutiny of interventions to improve air quality. Monitoring can play a critical role in assessing the impact of these schemes, helping to guide more effective action for transport planning.
On Thursday 25th February, 1:15pm – 2pm, CRP Technical Project Officer Abby McDougall and Project Manager Fiona Coull will outline current monitoring as part of CRP’s projects, including the latest insights from a 3-month traffic and road user monitoring programme. In collaboration with Vivacity, CRP have analysed data from sensors installed at 14 locations across London. This programme cuts across two of CRP’s projects, the Defra-funded Clean Air Villages project and Mayor of London-funded Healthy Streets Everyday programme, to help CRP and partners understand how the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting traffic and active travel on London’s streets.
Learning outcomes of this event include:
- How data can be captured through Artificial Intelligence
- Transforming monitoring data to be meaningful and practical for transport planning purposes
- How captured data can aid the decision-making process
We look forward to seeing you there!
