Optimization of public areas and infrastructure is key to accommodating the growing population in densely packed areas such as cities, metroplexes etc. To effectively optimize a given space, its usage patterns need to be analyzed so as to help managers of the space identify pain points and create a more effective improvement plan. Using a sensor system is the most efficient and accurate method of monitoring the given space, especially on a continuous basis. Our Wireless Sensors system is an integrated sensor system that combines the millimeter wave sensor, coupled with an environmental sensor system—a combination of temperature sensor, humidity sensor and accelerometer—to provide insight on the utilization patterns and surrounding conditions of the monitored space. This data is sent wirelessly via Bluetooth to a user-friendly graphical interface from which further analysis can be made. This is all achieved while maintaining the privacy of those in the monitored area.
