In upcoming days, you have a chance to see DataFromSky solution and its practical use cases and demonstration on an event related to the Road & Transportation. Visit the stand of COWI, our partner for Nordic countries, on Vejforum 2017 event, an exciting conference with the theme “Roads, people and technology”, held between 6. and 7. December 2017 in Hotel Nyborg Strand, Denmark. For more information, visit the event’s website

DataFromSky – the world’s most advanced traffic analysis
It will also be demonstrated how advanced technologies such as computer vision, neural networking and deep learning can be used and implemented in the world’s most advanced software for comprehensive traffic analyzes and also how to utilize this solution to detect the occupancy of a parking lot in real time using an ordinary IP cameras and the AI behind.

One of the topics presented on this event will be the “Accident Portal” – new web-based analysis tool developed by COWI that gives the Danish municipalities completely new opportunities for quickly, efficiently and through a user-friendly interface to work with traffic accidents data. The team of DataFromSky is currently working on a project evaluating the safety of a traffic node to know the potentionally risky situation and detect near accidents and accidents. This feature could be possibly utilized in the Accident Portal mentioned above.

Success of DataFromSky in Innovation contest!

We, at RCE, are proud to announce that we have succeeded in a start-up contest “Connect Visions to Solutions”, organized by German-Czech Chamber of Industry and Commerce. This competition was oriented on innovative products, services and business models in field of an intelligent infrastructure, including topics such as smart mobility and traffic, energy, smart parking, E-Mobility or intelligent buildings. The competition was supported by big key players in innovative solutions such as Bosch, E.ON, PRE, Siemens, Škoda Auto, T-Mobile and Deloitte.

We got to the Top 6 finalists and beat other 85 competing start-ups from the whole Europe! We have been chosen by Siemens to take part on the Winner’s night, which was held on 23/11/2017 in Manes Gallery in Prague, and to present DataFromSky concept in front of the jury, investors and other companies and start-ups.
We would like to thank for this great opportunity and for seeing a great potential in what we are doing. Although we did not win, we caught lot of attention and positive feedback!

DataFromSky mistaken for aliens!

Unidentified object in the skies of Trento, Italy – Aliens? Most of the citizens and local journals could think that, read some of the local newspapers. Do not worry, there is no danger of alliens attack so far, DataFromSky has a simple and reasonable explanation!

Using a special balloon for traffic data collecting, new DataFromSky traffic analysis near the city of Trento in northern Italy was undertaken within last weeks. Specially designed ballon was used for a 3hour long study of traffic flow in the multilevel roundabout as shown in the attached image. This helium-filled balloon has many advantages for the persistent traffic monitoring, in comparison to commonly used drones and UAV, as the operating time of the balloon can reach up to 5 hours! To get more information about this solution and its specification, read this article or contact us directly on info@datafromsky.com.

New version of the Viewer can export headway data

We have recently released a new enhanced version of DataFromSky Viewer! You can download the demo package at the home page. The list of differences includes a lot of things, so let’s take a look at few of them.

New feature? Calculate and export headways!
Have a look on the picture below, how to display the headway data in the Viewer. It is important to have the gates set properly per each lane to get the most accurate data. Once you have all the gates defined, choose one gate in the Traffic Analysis Gates box and click on button “Show” in More Statistics option. In a newly opened window, there is possibility to click on Calculate headways. The system will automatically calculate headways for all defined gates in the video. The headway data can be exported to the CSV file, simply by clicking on “Export”.

Movement Dynamics Graph
We have visualized movement dynamics for each trajectory into a graph containing information about the vehicle’s speed and acceleration (total, lateral or tangential). This graph can be created for each selected trajectory.

Some other improvements…

  • Added option in CSV trajectory export to select time origin of the exported time stamps. Three options are available (the timestamp will be exported in accordance to the selected option):
    1. Start of Video Sequence
    2. Start of Tracking Log
    3. Start of Trajectory
  • Rewritten Gap-Time/Time-to-follow analysis to support better fine-tuned parameters
  • Added dialog for export of Gap-Time/Time-to-follow to enable user provided parameters for the analysis and export
  • Added manual (in pdf file) explaining the Gap-Time/Time-to-follow analysis
