As average housing blocks get smaller and smaller in new developments and subdivisions, urban infill is placing increased pressures on accessibility to public parks and gardens.
This access to green spaces has more recently been identified as a key metric in overall wellbeing, with importance attributed to children and young people’s development, and the physical health of the population in general.
With a greater focus on mental health, green spaces have become even more topical in community groups and advocacy circles with the surrounding physical environment recognised as having great effect on people’s mood and mind set. The introduction of AI to improve measures of health and safety across any sector or industry undoubtedly has positive ramifications into the future.
Foresense Technologies enters the fray wherever behavioural patterns and human interactions with immediate surroundings is of relevance and is an industry leader in the collection of visitor presence data and the analysis of how people act – and interact – on-site in real world settings to provide real-time analytics of foot traffic inside and around any physical location. The Foresense platform offers an AI powered solution to gain an unprecedented level of insight into visitor flow and density and how they utilise and interact with on-site facilities and/ or attractions.
In a similar way to how behavioural data is utilised online through careful analysis of aspects such as dwell time, session duration, and unique and return visitations the Foresense platform collects data through proprietary sensor arrays that integrate with visitors’ smartphones.
Because the platform is accessible in real-time, highly informed, proactive decisions can be executed as trends are actually emerging. As a complete journey mapping solution, individual visitor data such as total time spent on site, and the breakdown of time spent at different areas such as restroom facilities, playgrounds, barbeques and sheltered or seated areas is collected.
With Foresense AI, green space managers can identify exactly what areas need improvement to make the space and its facilities more visitor friendly.
