DataFromSky analyzes busy traffic in India!

Take a look at our latest traffic analysis coming from India! DataFromSky has again proven its capabilities by carrying out the analysis of a very busy intersection in the city of Gururgram in India. The traffic flow was 507 tracked vehicles and motorcycles in just 1,5 minutes long video sequence; with regard to that, the average flow would reach up to 20,000 vehicles per hour!

Another feature that is worth mentioning and you can notice it in the video is the permanent blurring of some parts of the video. From now on, you can permanently blur the input video directly in the DataFromSky Viewer!
Watch the video below:

Some overall statistics from the analysis:

  • Total number of tracked objects in the short sequence of the video (1,5 minute): 507
  • Number of cars: 252
  • Number of medium vehicles: 7
  • Number of buses: 6
  • Number of motorcycles: 242
  • Total distance traveled: 88,5 km
  • Average speed: 12,5 km/h
  • In the picture below, the Origin-Destination matrix is showing the most used routes.

    Motorcycle traffic monitoring and interaction research

    Every now and then, an unique and interesting use case for DataFromSky comes up. The Department of Transportation Planning and Engineering at National Technical University of Athens is planning to use DataFromSky for traffic monitoring – to study interactions between powered two-wheelers (PTW) and other vehicles. They have already published a number of papers, dealing with powered two-wheelers’ overtaking in context of game theory or modelling based on multivariate statistics [1][2].

    The smaller size of PTWs makes it possible to keep moving and overtaking even in conditions where cars are immobilized. In some countries, PTWs are either a dominant form of traffic, or take up a large share. Given these facts, there is a lot of opportunities to build a better understanding of their interactions – and hopefully also safety in these situations.

    Below is a short video which we analyzed as a demonstration for the Greek scientists.
