Introducing Soofa Pro, a better way to measure pedestrian traffic in your parks.
Sustainable, solar powered smart park benches and outdoor furnishings charge phones with USB ports, serve as icons for the millennial and connected generations, and count the number of people using your parks all day, every day. Learn more below.
Soofa Pro is used by parks and recreation agencies like the Park District of Oak Park, New York City, Prince George's County, Oklahoma City, and more to improve the quality of parks for people.
With Soofa Pro smart urban furniture, parks and recreation agencies measure their park use like never before. By knowing park traffic and activity levels, our parks and recreation partners do the following:
- Measure the success of capital improvement projects based on how people actually use a renovated or newly constructed park.
- Know how popular and busy events are based on attendance. Then evaluate multiple events against each other to know what to replicate.
- Request budget increases or amendments using accurate, real-time data on park use for justification.
Gain new and extremely valuable insights into your parks' use with simple, easy to use reports and data exporting tools.
We measure park traffic with a sensor placed inside our smart urban furniture, like the Soofa Bench. Our sensor has a coverage radius of about 150 feet so you can count pedestrian traffic in many park settings - all people have to do is walk by within 150 feet. With our sensor you can also measure the repeat visitation rate to your parks and analyze the most popular routes of foot travel in or between your parks. Below you can see some of the data visualizations that are possible with Soofa Pro. Data is available for easy export via comma-separated value files (csv), too.
