Mapping Heat Exposure of Pedestrian Density Around Metro Stations Using Artificial Intelligence

Publication Date Jun 17, 2022


Global research extensively discusses artificial intelligence (AI) and thermal comfort in urban studies. The current research design uses Goodvision Video Insights as an application of AI to analyse users' preferences for movement within three exits/entrances of the metro stations in Ramses Square, Cairo, Egypt. This study uses AI technology to track pedestrian movement based on heat exposure in metro station contexts. The primary findings identified the relationship between user experiences and urban composition. These results also revealed that the urban morphology of the metro station context impresses users' thermal comfort and movement preferences enough to track their needs through commutes. This study could not address all the aspects that influence users' experiences in the case study. Future studies provide light on the impact of varying temperature conditions on comfort levels and, as a result, human behaviour in station areas.
