The City of St. Louis is tapping local startup CTY to install sensors around town that will help track pedestrian and bicycle traffic.

The censors, designed to give the city data on how motor vehicles affect walkers and bikers, are part of St. Louis’ larger HEAL (Healthy Eating, Active Living) initiative. Organizers hope the project can help the city better accommodate foot and bike traffic.

CTY is funding the pilot program with a $35,000 grant from the Knight Foundation. A Knight Foundation representative said the organization hopes the project will encourage cities to make “data-driven decisions about the use of public space.”
