Safety analysis using data from 8 drones at once!

Another great project has been accomplished, among other things, thanks to DataFromSky analysis! DataFromSky has made a traffic study of a corridor in the city of Fairfield in Connecticut, U.S.. The data were used for an extensive Safety analysis of the whole corridor called Black Rock Turnpike. The study, created by The Connecticut Metropolitan Council of Governments (MetroCOG) and FHI, identifies strategies to create a safe and attractive pedestrian environment, a robust infrastructure for bicyclists, and linkages between residential areas and the shops, businesses and restaurants along Black Rock Turnpike.

Black Rock Turnpike is a major arterial that serves one of the city’s largest business and commercial districts. According to the estimates, approximately 20,000 vehicles utilize this corridor every day. As the results of the analysis show – although Black Rock Turnpike has a posted speed limit of 50 km/h (30 miles/h), the average speeds are between 55 – 65 km/h (35-40 miles/h). The road widths, speed, high traffic volume and numerous curb cuts create an unsafe and uninviting pedestrian environment. Click on this link to read more about the whole project.

Analyzed area

However, what is truly remarkable about this analysis is the method how the data were recorded and analyzed. To be able to cover the whole corridor, which is roughly 1,3 km in length, up to 8 drones recording at the same time were needed! This allowed us to analyze the corridor as a complex scene, obtain the complete trajectories of vehicles for the whole analyzed route and create the detailed Origin-destination statistics! What were the key conditions for the successful analysis?

  1. top-down view position (bird’s eye perspective)
  2. space overlap – at least 10 % of overlap in the analyzed area from each side
  3. time overlap – all the drones started filming at the exact same time


Take a look at the video of raw output of 8 drone videos merged together:

DataFromSky presented on Startup-day in Prague

DataFromSky attended the event called Smart Startup Day organized by ČSOB (Československá obchodní banka, a. s.) and held on 26. 2. 2018 in Prague.
The event welcomed innovative start-ups from Czech Republic and was focused on the following topics:

  • Mobility
  • Smart home
  • Smart city
  • Smart office / Flexible workspace
  • Smart data and AI
  • Robotization and automation of internal processes

    It was a good opportunity to meet with other innovative startups and see their ideas and products. We hope that this event will help us to create some new business connections and to achieve greater awareness of DataFromSky also within Czech Republic.

    See some pictures from the event below:

    DataFromSky measures speeding

    New video analysis comes from Czech Republic and measures the speeding!
    In this demonstration survey, we tracked 204 vehicles which traveled 114 kilometers in total, averaging 555 m per vehicle. The average speed was 34,5 kph.

    The video is displaying the sections with maximal speed allowed and highlights vehicles that have exceeded this speed. In the DataFromSky Viewer, you can create such a measured area simply using a polygon, where you can define the conditions under which the alert should appear (e.g. to which categories of vehicles does the rule apply, speed range etc.).

    Do you have a video you want to get analyzed? Send us an inquiry and we will create an advanced traffic study right away! Contact us directly at this link.

    People tracking in crowded environment

    Another great move and improvement of DataFromSky – take a look what the software is now capable of! We can detect and track people even in very crowded environment, reaching the accuracy of detection over 99 %!

    The following video is a part of a project supported by EU programme Horizon 2020 called “Study of the individual and collective behavior of people in large-scale events”. The objective is to extract the trajectories of all individuals and to create a pedestrian behavior model for the crowded environment based on the real data from DataFromSky analysis.

    This project opens new channels and brings other new possibilities in using DataFromSky in UAV monitoring:
    – utilization in perimeter security – active and real-time aerial surveillance in mass events (sport events, concerts, parades, demonstrations etc.)
    – detection of non-standard behavior, dangerous situations, suspicious gathering (in demonstrations and crowds)
    – studies of pedestrians movement behavior and its patterns
    and much more!

    Keep a close eye on our website and social pages to follow our progress (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Vimeo)!
