Abstract

Venetians’ quality of life is being affected through street congestion and safety risks introduced by increasing tourism. The team digitally modeled the streets of Venice and conducted manual and automatic pedestrian counts to learn about chokepoints and pedestrian flow across the city. The team concluded that manual counting was inefficient and inadequate leading the team to explore automatic counting through cameras. These systems were evaluated for reliability and continuous data collection to be used in a predictive pedestrian model.
