The IHE South Western Branch would like to invite you to their next lunchtime webinar on Wednesday 27th March 2024 presented by See.Sense.


Join us for a comprehensive session where we explore the integration of See.Sense’s innovative crowdsourced cycling sensor data into active travel planning in the UK and internationally. The webinar will cover the significance of high-quality data in designing and maintaining infrastructure and delve into how See.Sense data contributes to safety improvements and the monitoring of path conditions. Participants will learn about the ‘before and after’ analysis of infrastructure performance, with practical examples illustrating the impact. The presentation will also introduce cutting-edge real-time data applications for Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS), including ‘green wave’ and ‘glosa’ techniques. The session will wrap up with a Q&A segment, providing insights on how See.Sense data can be leveraged for more sustainable and efficient urban transport solutions.
