The Intelligent Mobility Meter – Portable Fine-Grained Data Collection and Analysis of Pedestrian, Cyclist, and Motor Vehicle Traffic

The Intelligent Mobility Meter (IMM) is a portable data collection and analysis platform which will be able to collect fine-grained statistics on pedestrian, cyclist and vehicular traffic. The objective of the IMM project is to provide accurate and actionable data to government officials and transit advocates. The meter is an expansion of the Technologies for Safe and Efficient Transportation University Transportation Center (UTC T-SET) funded project “Automatic Counting of Pedestrians and Cyclists”, which researched, developed and deployed a robust pedestrian and bike counting system. The deployed system was employed - in collaboration with the City of Pittsburgh - to collect usage data on Pittsburgh’s bike lanes. However current system capabilities are limited to counting pedestrians and bikes. To create a true mobility meter, the project team intends to expand analysis to counting motor vehicles, as well as determine the flows of traffic, including speeds of all participants and way-times at intersections.
