    Abstract

    For many years, social participation has been pointed out as the main component of smart cities and a key to regulating society in terms of mobility. In this work, we present a social metric for the level of law compliance from drivers regarding pedestrians, at permitted crossings, the Index of Respect to Pedestrians Priority (IRPP), and propose a Pedestrian Report Management System (PeReMaS), based on a mobile app, to increase IRPP value over time. The system is tested in a university campus. A sociocybernetic analysis was performed, to assess the potential of the PeReMaS. Results have shown that social progress, concerning the level of traffic law compliance towards pedestrians, could be measured in terms of IRPP. Also, the PeReMaS empowers pedestrians, and this seems to influence positively the behavior of car drivers. These findings suggest this is an approach worth considering in the evolution of pedestrian smart cities.
