A new partnership has been formed to gauge how COVID-19 has impacted people-movement.
The project will use pedestrian-counting data to better understand the impact of the virus on economic mobility and social engagement.
Councils will use nCounter sensors and devices that are already in public areas, such as CBD parks, running and walking trails, and beaches to measure the use of public places and facilities during the pandemic restrictions.
The new collaborative study between UOW's SMART Infrastructure and Meshed will help councils at the forefront of the COVID-19 impact better understand people's mobility changes during the pandemic @UOWTV #uowcreative
