Realtime detection from a moving UAV?

Massive progress we have made in DataFromSky! As we keep on further development of DataFromSky solution, we can now boast great successes in the field of automatic detection from a moving UAV!

Imagine that you can directly detect and count the vehicles in traffic congestions while flying a drone over the traffic node! Impossible? Not anymore – since this moment, DataFromSky can detect and analyze vehicles from a flying UAV and provide information about the total number of vehicles and its category. Knowing such valuable information in real time, one can immediately predict the length of delay in the traffic congestion or the length of the tailback itself.
The success rate of the detection exceeds 95,67 % and the detection works on 12 828 CUDA cores – the image is evaluated in 200 ms.

See the video below, showing the raw data output from the detector – the data is not additionally modified in any way (no tracking, no filtration), however, even with the raw output we reached such a high accuracy of detection. Further data processing (tracking, etc.) will make the output even more accurate!

Drone traffic monitoring demonstration in Netherlands

At the beginning of July, sUAS news reported about drone traffic monitoring demonstration in Netherlands.

front page of magazine

Traffic technology International, an international web-and-print magazine, published in their June/July 2015 issue an article about UAV-based road traffic monitoring based on the Netherlands event under the title Farewell to fixed cameras?.

While the one-off demonstration showcased real-time monitoring, not analysis, it is an application of UAVs in traffic nevertheless. The article title is especially poignant for us, since drones can replace fixed cameras for both monitoring and analysis.

Meanwhile, another monitoring application is on the horizon: “The Jakarta City police to use drones to monitor traffic”. Doubtless, many more are to come…
