GPS tracking experiment at primary school De Stappen in Tilburg municipality

On February the 27th, Tilburg municipality and NHTV started with an innovative GPS- tracking experiment at primary school De Stappen. During a period of two weeks children will carry a GPS-tracker with them to research their multiple transport modalities within the primary school surroundings and neighbourhood. The idea is to show the routes of the children on a map. The routes can help to decide where to take measures in order to (re)design a child friendly neighbourhood. If for instance a route is very crowded with motorised traffic, do the children also experience it this way?
