The approach of the project is to develop a theoretical framework and understand designing pervasive systems as an integral part of the urban landscape. The research was conducted in the city of Bath according to data provided by the CityWare project, in a heritage environment with tourist attractions.
It was proposed to investigate the application of research methods based on an agent system, employed by various practices in this field, as a framework for understanding the complex relationship between pervasive systems, and urban space in general. This project also attempted to propose a tool for the improvement of the existing infrastructure as well as a dynamic new transport planning.
The initial findings indicate that the pervasive system enables simulation the pedestrian flow in the city. The model is developed further in addition to generating the possibilities for the transport planning with the contribution of particle flow system and visual ability.
