WeCount, Citizens Observing Urban Transport

WeCount applies participatory Citizen Science methods to collaboratively develop and deploy innovative, low-cost, automated traffic counting sensors (i.e. Telraam Sensor) and multi-stakeholder engagement mechanisms in five case studies in Leuven (BE), Madrid and Barcelona (ES), Cardiff (UK), Dublin (IE) and Ljubljana (SI). The five cases follow a similar execution path, with Leuven & Madrid (and Barcelona) leading off and serving as a test case for the remaining three cases.

Following this approach, WeCount aims to quantify local road traffic (cars, trucks, active modes, and speed), produce scientific knowledge in the field of mobility and pollution, and co-design informed solutions to address a variety of road transport challenges. In addition, the project provides cost-effective data for local authorities on a much larger temporal and spatial scale than would be possible with traditional traffic counts, opening up new opportunities for transportation policy and research.

WeCount, Citizens Observing Urban Transport

WeCount, Citizens Observing Urban Transport, is a Horizon 2020 funded project that is part of a Science with and for Society (SwafS) call (H2020-SwafS-2018-2020). WeCount is a Citizen Science project working in five cities in Europe to empower citizens to take a leading role in producing data, evidence, and knowledge around mobility in their own neighbourhoods and at the street level.
