New Traffic Sensors at Milton Park

Published on: 17/10/2018

You may have noticed some new pieces of equipment on some of the Park’s lampposts.  Milton Park is working in partnership with Oxfordshire County Council’s sustainable travel and public health teams to collect data, primarily on pedestrian and cycle movements, but also to collect data on general traffic movements.  We have installed 6 traffic sensors (see map) which are made and operated by Vivacity Labs.

 

Vivacity’s traffic sensors detect, classify and track vehicles within a field of view. The software works in a number of stages, first identifying instances of vehicles (and pedestrians) and their location within the field of view, then classifying these instances (output of this stage shown in Figure 1) and finally tracking instances from frame to frame. The footage from the sensors is processed within them and only the summary data (as shown in Fig 2) is retained for analysis.  It is therefore not possible to identify individuals or their vehicles from this data (unlike the Park’s CCTV system which can provide important security information). 

 

The primary goal of the Vivacity project is to gather data to understand movements into, out of and around the Park, particularly focused on cyclist and pedestrian movements. The sensors will also provide anonymised data on the movement patterns of other road users, primarily vehicles.  The data from the sensors will provide a strong data backbone for future development and investment in cycling and walking infrastructure and will be used by the Council to prioritise investment and to quantify the public health value of improvements to e.g. cycle paths..

 

The sensors are positioned at key entry and exit points to the Park and will also enable us to monitor vehicle movements, particularly HGV movements through the Park. (see Map).
