A-T-R were commissioned by TRL to undertake a study of cycle speeds in cycle lanes around six bus stops in Blackfriars, Mile End, Whitechapel and Stratford. For each bus stop, pedestrians needed to cross a cycle lane in order to embark or disembark from a bus. The study was presented to TFL as part of an ongoing cycle safety scheme.
TRL required multiple views at each location, to accurately analyse cycle speeds and interaction with pedestrians.
During pre-survey, we worked with TRL to establish suitable camera positions and angles. Up to 10 cameras were tested and calibrated per site, each with overlapping views to mitigate obstructions from moving vehicles and to capture any cyclists who had strayed outside the cycle lanes. For data capture we used HD cameras recording at 30 frames per second.
TRL have commissioned A-T-R to carry out 11 further cycle surveys around London.
