The second workshop brought together users and manufacturers of automatic pedestrian counting equipment. The goal for the day was to exchange experiences, provide practical know-how and inspire the debate on counting methods. For details of the objectives see the downloadable program.
Five speakers representing users from different parts of the world talked about their experiences, user needs and requirements regarding automated counts. They were followed by six presentations of company representatives who demonstrated their counting equipment illustrating different technologies – from high volume counts in city centres to counts in parks and on hiking trails.
The user and manufacturer presentations were supplemented by in introduction into the issue of automatic counts by Daniel Sauter, Urban Mobility Research, Switzerland and a draft proposal for counting standards by Martin Wedderburn, Principle Transport Planner, Colin Buchanan, London, UK.
