LUMIGUIDE in cooperation with our partner Eco Counter, became the official contractors that will deliver bicycle and pedestrian counting data for 2019-2023 for the NDW (nationale databank wegverkeersgegevens). Counting pedestrian and cyclist will be the main solution that we offer in this contract.
Some of you might wonder, why do we have to count pedestrians and cyclist?
In this post, we will talk about the benefit of bicycle and pedestrian counting for your urban city. Urban areas are the regions surrounding a city. The urban area includes cities, towns and suburbs. Most of the inhabitants in urban areas have non-agricultural occupations.
Urban area also means that the region is very developed and has a high density of human structures such as houses, buildings, roads, bridges and railways. Throughout the world, there is a pattern of migration that can be observed from the rural areas to the urban areas. UN predicts that in 2050, 68% of the world population is projected to live in urban areas. This increase in population has to be accompanied with better mobility.
Therefore, counting of the pedestrians and cyclist will help in several aspects of city planning.
