Preliminary results of the Pedestrian Movement Study that mapped pathway usage around the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa campus were recently released by the UH Mānoa Facilities—Mānoa Campus: Framework for the Future team.

Sensors were used to anonymously count the number of wi-fi-enabled devices that moved through the campus during the fall 2018 semester, allowing analysts to estimate pedestrian traffic on campus. The study is intended to help guide decisions on future improvements to the campus such as additional lighting, bike racks and outdoor seating, etc.

The research team is asking the UH Mānoa community for feedback on how they use the pathways on campus and where they see patterns of movement.

See the visualization of pedestrian traffic on campus and leave feedback at the Framework for the Future website.
