Challenge / Goal

In Germany, more than 28,000 children under the age of 15 were involved in road traffic accidents in 2019. Just about 12% of such accidents occur on weekdays between 7am and 8am. It is therefore very important for parents that their children get to school fast and, above all, safely.

Challenge of the critical mass of digital on-site information 
As a rule, road traffic authorities have precise information on traffic engineering installations, such as traffic lights or markings. Similarly, traffic engineering facilities such as central islands and safety barriers are known.


Precise and digital: Identification of 'grey spots' on school and leisure routes

This is where the Data4City project for safe school and leisure routes comes in. For this purpose, the mobile and map-based app solution 'Pin City' directly involves those affected on site: parents, pupils and all other interested parties capture precise information on individually configurable topics such as crossing points, path conditions, lighting and visibility conditions or traffic density. Additional information, such as whether children are travelling by bicycle or walking, can also be collected. Surveys in defined areas, such as bus stops, can also be carried out through the app. All functions can be configured for the individual application on site. The intuitive operation and low-threshold playful elements of the Pin City app uncover previously unknown 'grey spots' on school and leisure routes with the knowledge of those involved. Descriptions and photos can be noted, which the other participants can comment on and review. All information is available with a high level of detail and accuracy, eliminating the need for cost-intensive digitalisation processes.

Citizen participation

Possibility of facilitation and processing of on-site information in the Data4City 'Cockpit'. The Data4City 'Cockpit' supports authorities and other involved groups in the overall process and management of the data. In this way, the collected on-site information is automatically processed and merged with existing official data. Via a facilitation function, the web application enables direct communication with the app users. Simultaneously, targeted messages and notices can be sent to the participants of current projects via the PinCity message channel. Each message can be called up in the 'Cockpit' with its associated photos, descriptions and comments. In this way, the information provided can be used directly, for example, in the creation of school route plans or for internal administrative purposes. Furthermore, the collected information can be retrieved as a raw data set with geo reference, in the usual office- and json-format. The configuration of a data interface is possible based on individual customer requirements.
