OPP Places Portable Cameras Around Campus As Part Of Pedestrian Crossing Study

Penn State’s Office of the Physical Plant is sponsoring a campus-wide pedestrian crossing study starting this month. The study will use portable cameras to survey more than 320 pedestrian crossings and review features like accessibility ramps, curbing, pavement markings, and lighting.

The study began earlier this week and will conclude in January 2018. It will focus on roadways where pedestrian and vehicle conflict could arise. Design consulting firm Pennoni Associates, Inc. and their sub-consultant Tri-State Data, Inc. will manage the study and set up 137 traffic counts at campus intersections and mid-block pedestrian crossings.

The portable cameras, called Miovision Scout Video Collection Units, are used for capturing traffic video and are able to classify cars, trucks, cyclists, and pedestrians. None of the survey equipment used in the study will affect traffic.
