UK-based transport AI company Vivacity Labs is set to work with a number of UK councils to help employees return to work safetly during the Covid-19 crisis.
The scheme will see the firm improve its Active Travel insight to help local authorities understand behaviour patterns, such as dangerous undertaking manoeuvres and social distancing. The information gathered will help councils improve safety protocols in place.
Vivacity Lab's artificial intelligence technology anonymous captures, classifies and tracks live transport usage in major towns and cities. It is currently already being used by more than 30 UK councils, with more joining following the £250million recent government funding awarded for regions to develop 'Active Travel' schemes.
Alan Law, County Transport Modeller and Team Leader, Transport Planning at Warwickshire County Council, said: "Vivacity responded quickly, proficiently and professionally in response to WCC request for assistance in monitoring active travel schemes. The Vivacity Labs teams were very flexible in the approach to the deployment of sensors and enabled the county to start monitoring use of schemes with this great technology within a very short period of time."
Mark Nicholson, Vivacity Labs CEO, added: "Vivacity has worked with authorities across the country for a number of years. Now, with the deadline for Active Travel funding fast approaching, it's never been more important for councils to have a robust understanding of how residents are using local Active Travel routes, and planning for safety interventions accordingly."
