It is a collaborative initiative of PolyU School of Design and the Department of Applied Social Sciences partnered with the Tai O Village Rural Committee and various community groups to collect pedestrian traffic flow data in Tai O Village in Hong Kong. It monitors pedestrian traffic into the Village using infrared passage gates installed in eight major infrastructure connections. The project is led by Mr Daniel Elkin, Assistant Professor and Deputy Discipline Leader of BA(Hons) in Environment & Interior Design of PolyU Design.
