Aachener Grundvermögen publishes pedestrian frequency on high streets

Since June 11, 2018, hystreet.com GmbH has published the results of pedestrian frequency measurements in the 1-a retail locations in Germany online on its website hystreet.com. In initially 15 cities, passers-by are counted in 26 retail locations and the results are available for all interested parties in a beta version free of charge, for viewing and downloading. The measurement is carried out with laser scanners which, according to the manufacturer's specifications, have a counting accuracy of 99%. The measurement is permanent and counts the pedestrians in both directions.

"The number of passers-by is an important indicator of the attractiveness of a retail location," says Nico Schröder, CEO of hystreet.com GmbH. "It shows the retailer the sales potential and allows him to calculate the levy rate. It also helps with urban and traffic planning and supports trade research," Schröder continued. "With this offer, hystreet.com sets facts against assumptions and measurements against opinions," says Schröder. "All interested parties are invited to work with the data. We are very interested in the users' experiences."

hystreet.com aims to further expand this service and, for example, add further functionalities. Within a short time about 50 laser scanners will be installed for pedestrian traffic counts, more are planned.
