The city's initial goal was to provide downtown retailers with greater insight into the quantity and timing of foot traffic during events so that they could staff and promote accordingly. Its long-term goal is to enable the city management team to view a broad scope of activities (e.g. traffic, parking, crowds, etc.) across the city through a touchscreen.
To date, Quantela has implemented its people counting, parking, and traffic management solutions providing data and predictive analytics through its comprehensive dashboard. In addition, it has installed intelligent streetlight controls to provide the appropriate amount of lighting needed during high traffic times, while conserving energy during off-peak hours.
