Smart Pedestrian Net is a project focused on improving walkability in cities. SPN
has three main goals: 1) assess the conditions provided to pedestrians; 2) estimate
the cost and benefits of promoting walkability; and 3) develop a navigation system,
by combining specific criteria with pedestrian preferences. The project will be
tested in the cities of Porto and Bologna with the aim of guiding urban and transportation
policies. The overall goal is to provide a model to help European cities to
be people-oriented by improving walkability as one of the important dimensions of
smart sustainable and inclusive cities.
