Support your Smart City projects

Before & After

After
Our data helps you allocate funds to the right projects and prove the positive impact of your Smart City initiatives.
Before
Smart City projects were based on assumptions and their impacts were difficult to justify.

Solutions

Make informed decisions for your Smart City projects.

Our accurate, reliable data helps you choose the right projects to focus on by determining where use is heaviest. Armed with hard evidence of the need for improvement, your prioritization decisions will be incontestable.

Measure multimodal traffic trends.

Determine how many bicyclists ride on your sidewalks and how many trucks drive on residential streets. This data can help you prioritize pilot projects and critical infrastructure improvements.

Give designers and planners a more complete understanding of your project.

Augment your RFP with knowledge of when, where, and how people are using public spaces. Respondents will better understand your needs and objectives. You’ll get more thoughtful responses and all design team members will be committed to the most important aspects of your project from day one.

Provide citizens before and after comparisons to show the positive impact of your initiatives.

Assuage taxpayers’ fears of inefficient government spending. Demonstrate how your new and improved public spaces increase the vibrancy of their neighborhoods by comparing before and after measurements of pedestrians, bicyclists, and vehicles.

Who we've worked with

As part of a citywide revitalization, City of Paris is partnering with Cisco and Placemeter to measure how many people are walking, biking, and driving in the Place de la Nation. Over the course of one year Placemeter will help test different scenarios, such as what happens if streets are closed for a month, or what happens if benches and chairs move around, or what happens if bike lane expand.

Developers, students, retailers, and urban planners will all get direct and real-time access to the plaza’s data, to create, elaborate, and contribute.
