Engaging the Public with Technology
April 7, 2009
The phrase Audience Response System (ARS) refers to an instant polling technology that allows participants to give feedback using wireless keypads. Outside of a few high profile projects, such as the World Trade Center site planning process, and a few high-profile firms, such as EDAW, ARS has received little mainstream attention in the planning and design fields.
In this program, Anthony Kobak from the City of Youngstown, Ohio, used case studies to explain the benefits of ARS for planning applications and gave participants an opportunity to interact with ARS equipment.
