When carrying out a complex traffic study, it may be difficult to map the entire traffic situation, especially with traditional methods. Using a solution in form of traffic research from air with a drone and DataFromSky software, all movements are recorded down and analyzed to the smallest detail for unlimited data. In addition to junctions and road sections, the system is also suitable for parking areas, events, station environments or terminals.
The benefits of traffic research from the aerial video:
- accurate data about traffic flow (counts), turning movements, speed, acceleration, travel time, stationary time (queing time) and many other traffic parameters
- reliable, detailed research without influencing traffic behavior (inconspicuous solution)
- full traffic research, almost without a human intervention
- tool to improve traffic safety
- perfect communication tool for organizations, citizens and politics
Simple insight into all data
The knowledge in form of a aerial video with exact traffic parameters, speed measurements and identification of inappropriate or dangerous behavior is a very powerful communication tool for organizations, citizens and politicians alike. Moreover, it is fairly easy to evaluate, or use the results immediately in programs for traffic simulation models such as VISSIM.
Our partner in the BENELUX region – Roelofs – has recently carried out such complex traffic analysis accross the Netherlands using the drones to analyse the crossroads – especially roundabouts and signalized intersections.
Speed-based trajectories in the analyzed area
The results obtained thanks to DataFromSky were further used to create a simulation model in VISSIM, using the real data about: vehicle categories, speed and acceleration in crossroad, intensities on each lane, vehicle gap time and origin destination statistics. This is the most accurate simulation you can achieve by using real world data! If you want to get more detailed information about the analysis results, click here .

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.
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!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
DataFromSky has participarted in PTV’s periodic event – Traffic Innovation Workshop, held on 26. 10. 2017 in Dubai, UAE! Thanks to our regional Business partner in the Middle East, the capabilities and great progress of DataFromSky system was demonstrated during this event, which is a good opportunity to bring together transportation professionals and ITS providers from public authorities, consultancies and academics.
We are pleased, that our solution have attracted many participants of the event and that we have met with a very positive feedback!
