Safety Management

Using computer vision to detect pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicle near-misses and high risk events

Using computer vision, video cameras, and AI to detect, count, measure speed, and intent on pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicles at intersections, crosswalks, multimodal lanes and other higher-risk sites. We are using edge computing, computer vision, and deep learning neural networks to automatically detect presence, count, and measure speed of pedestrians, cyclists, and vehicles to inform traffic signaling systems and digital... more »

Why is this a priority and what are the benefits for the State/County/City?

This idea is aligned with Vision Zero and traffic safety goals ... as well as public health goals (e.g. touchless cross walks). The technology can be used in urban, suburban, and highway scenarios. Data is generated so transportation engineers can remotely monitor traffic risk scenarios for both planning and real time operational purposes.

Safety Management

Bike-Friendly Resurfacing Program

DVRPC analyzes the priority of road segments for bike facilities and the Level of Traffic Stress for bicycles, then conducts feasibility screenings in-house and with PennDOT. DVRPC and county planning staff coordinate extensively with municipal officials to facilitate an official letter of request to PennDOT, who then designs and incorporates the bike facility improvements as part of regularly scheduled resurfacing projects.... more »

Idea Champion - Who at NJDOT, NJ Transit or NJ Motor Vehicle? (if known) NJDOT

Why is this a priority and what are the benefits for the State/County/City?

#1 Cost-savings: You incorporate bike facilities into the pavement (where appropriate) during the scheduled resurfacing and do not have to do it at a later date.

 

#2 Bicycle Safety: NJ is a designated pedestrian/bicycle focus state by FHWA. This designation is given for having the highest fatality rates in the nation. This should be more than enough evidence.
