OPTIMISING NATURE? Foresense, AI & Public Green Spaces

In the concrete jungle, green spaces are at a premium.

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.

With a powerful array of AI guided analytical tools, Foresense Technologies will drive public parks and gardens into a high-tech future.

Foresense AI will identify the potential for layout and design variations to improve flow and efficiency utilising aggregated data to establish peak demand times for specific sections and individual facilities.

In this way, it provides justification for investment in new facilities, equipment or building projects and creates new revenue streams from highly targeted narrowcast advertising for local businesses and events.

Because the Foresense technology only interacts with individual smartphone identifiers, personal anonymity is completely retained to alleviate any privacy concerns.

The technology can even complement existing security surveillance systems. Foresense AI platform detects loitering and suspicious behaviours and unauthorised entry to restricted areas to deploy security staff or notify police in real time as issues develop.

Foresense offers full dovetail integration into any existing apps and management software and can even be used to optimise plant growth! With additional options that incorporate propriety sensors for measuring parameters including air quality, ambient temperature, soil hydration and chemical composition, flora too can be monitored in real time to ensure sustained health and beauty.

With a powerful array of AI guided analytical tools, Foresense Technologies will drive public parks and gardens into a high-tech future.

Offering full customisation options, existing operations can be taken to a whole new level with true real time interaction for management, staff and visitors alike.

Whilst public spaces, parks and gardens may not need robots or high-tech computer systems for their very survival, as with countless other sectors and industries – from medicine and defence through to retail and hospitality – the power of AI can shape a better future.

That future is Foresense!
