Digital smart kerbs to give Campbelltown an edge

NSW

Smart CCTV cameras have been installed in Campbelltown City Centre to help monitor kerb use and vehicle and pedestrian activity.

The CCTV cameras are being utilised in Queen St, Hurley St, Dumaresq St, Patrick St, Lithgow St, Railway St, Campbelltown Station overpass, Hurley St underpass, and Milgate Lane.

“We are using this technology to monitor kerb use and vehicle, pedestrian and cycling activity,” Campbelltown City Council said in a statement.

The Council says the digital kerbs will help it to:

  • Understand demand on kerbs;
  • Provide data on how kerbs are used;
  • Understand how kerbs could better meet community needs.

Footage from the smart kerbs will be processed by an AI application and then converted into numerical data.

All data is de-identified and anonymous, with no identifying information being collected, the Council said.

The trial is underpinned by Transport for NSW’s strategic priorities to leverage emerging technology to create better places and enhance the customer experience for pedestrians, cyclists, drivers and the community.
