WeCount aims to empower citizens to take a leading role in the production of data, evidence and knowledge around mobility in their own neighborhoods, and at street level. The project follows participatory citizen science methods to co-create and use innovative low cost, automated, road traffic counting sensors (i.e. Telraam) and multi-stakeholder engagement mechanisms in 5 pilots in Madrid, Ljubljana, Dublin, Cardiff and Leuven.
WeCount partner, the University of Ljubljana introduces the project's local impact on mobility in the Slovenian city of Ljubljana.
WeCount sensors are helping identify important bike corridors, capture cycling trends, traffic noise-sources and justify investments in biking infrastructure. The main objectives for the city, are the development of a bicycle route network, a higher proportion of bicycle trips and improved transition knots for pedestrians and cyclists, especially within the city centre.
