Choose Ad Space
The City of San Diego published a report on Vision Zero. In this report, potential solutions were laid out including traffic calming measures, one of which was intersection murals.
What it does
Leverages opportunity within Public & Private Partnerships (P3) to create intersection murals.
How I built it
Leveraged SD Open Data Portal to identify traffic information and traffic collision data, along with GE Smart Cities platform data, with a python backend stack.
Challenges I ran into
Having a advocate that was receptive to the technology solution offered to City.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We found a published city metric for vision zero plan and created a solution that reduces accidents, reduces vehicle speed, and increases pedestrian volume around businesses.
What I learned
Data sets are not normalized and require a degree of effort to massage data into a format that works with the challenge problem
What's next for CHALK
We seek to validate models that show decreases in vehicular incidents due to methodical urban planning of space making via crosswalk art. Additinionally, Chalk is one of many program that can be promoted through a Private/Public Partnership.
