City Optimisation Using AI

SAPHI developed a fully integrated AI platform to analyze pedestrian mobility and utilization in local government areas. This cutting-edge solution provides AI-driven insights for infrastructure management and urban planning, enabling more informed decision-making and optimized resource allocation.

What Did Glenelg Shire Say?

"Integrating Shellshock AI into our framework has greatly enhanced our asset management capabilities. With Shellshock AI, we've seen marked improvements in visualising pedestrian flows and our Marine traffic patterns, which has been instrumental in optimising the Local Ports asset management strategies."
Glenelg Shire Council

What Was The Problem?

Glenelg Shire Council LGA needed to monitor and assess boat ramp patronage and pedestrian flow to improve urban planning, infrastructure management and optimise space usage. The geographical areas they needed to cover and budget restrictions meant traditional road ropes and IoT people counters were not going to achieve the outcomes.

What Was The Solution?

Our team developed Shellshock AI. Shellshock AI leverages advanced AI models to analyze pedestrian mobility and utilization in local government areas for a fraction of the cost and effort associated with traditional IoT solutions. 



Key features of the solution included:

  • AI-Driven Analytics: Utilized sophisticated AI models to analyze data on community engagement and recycling program effectiveness.
  • Durable Hardware: Devices built to withstand extreme weather and environmental conditions, ensuring reliability and longevity.
  • Off-Grid Power Solutions: Integrated solar power systems and battery storage to maintain uninterrupted operation without reliance on mains power.
  • Real-Time Monitoring: Enabled real-time data capture and analysis, providing immediate insights and actionable information to optimize staff schedules and resource allocation.
  • Multi-Parameter Capture: The system can monitor and analyze multiple parameters simultaneously, offering a comprehensive view of community engagement and operational performance.
  • Remote Updates: Capable of changing what parameters it captures through remote software updates, allowing for flexibility and adaptability to evolving needs.


What Was The Outcome?

The urban mobility solution provided the Glenelg Shire Council with valuable insights for urban planning. Key outcomes included:


  • Real-Time Data: Enhanced decision-making with immediate access to utilisation data.
  • Operational Insights: Improved understanding of usage patterns, aiding in the optimisation of public space and infrastructure planning.
  • Cost Efficiency: Leveraging existing infrastructure minimised costs and facilitated rapid deployment.
  • Improved Maintenance Scheduling: The data gathered allowed for more accurate and efficient maintenance scheduling, reducing downtime and improving safety.
  • Utilisation Assessments: The insights gained from the monitoring system enabled better assessments of jetty utilisation, supporting resource allocation and planning.
  • Improved Tourism Planning: By understanding the patterns of jetty usage, the LGA could enhance tourism planning, ensuring that the jetties remain a major tourist and economic asset.
