The science of pedestrian movement and our final idea

According to a paper by Willis et al. (2003) entitled Human Movement Behaviour in Urban Spaces: Implications for the Design and Modelling of Effective Pedestrian Environments, ‘Predicting individuals’ movement patterns through space is becoming an increasingly important goal of urban and transport planners interested in designing effective urban spaces for pedestrians’.

To this end, bearing in mind the Archaeology department at Plymouth University and ArchOS mentioned previously we came up with our final idea.

We have decided to create an interactive LED wall which senses pedestrian movement, uploading the data live to Cosm while also giving people an artwork to interact with giving the feeling of being connected with the architecture around them.
