The data capture unit (DCU)
Putting data in the hands of the population is a must for the growing, smart city. Our metropoles are exciting, fast moving, cultural places but this comes at a cost to the environment, our commuting times and our standard of living. For us, a city will be truly 'smart' when everyone has access to live, relevant information when they need it, leaving the rest of the day free to enjoy the beauty of cities.
How a population moves throughout the day, and how this evolves over time is vital for future city planning. We are moving more, so how we get from A to B and what we see in between is important.
With 70-80% of carbon emissions coming from our cities, the population need to ensure they are playing their part in reducing the damaging effects of the air that we breathe, every day.
Is it a bus, is it a bike, is it green, is it safe, is it cost effective? Transit information is not just about what journeys are made, but how they are made. We look at travel insights to inform the moving city.
