Smart and Equitable Parks: Quantifying Returns on Investments Based on Probabilistic Mobility-dependent Correlates of Park Usage using Cyber-physical System Technologies

A challenge for local governments is to develop and maintain parks in ways that equitably distribute benefits to health, well-being, livability, accessibility to essential services, and the economy. The overarching goal of this proposal is to explore urban park use and correlates of use related to mobility services (i.e., their quantitative linkage to economic growth through equitable access to essential services) using cyber-physical system technologies in order to bring to light ways in which city officials and planners can quantify data-driven returns on potential investments to parks and mobility services and implement changes that will uniformly distribute these benefits.
