DataFromSky Team was asked by the Slovak TV to answer the question on how can traffic analysis using AI help to improve the worsening traffic situation in many large cities? Intelligent traffic analysis can help to identify main transportation problems and the causes of frequent bottlenecks or traffic conflicts. Nowadays, transport engineers have a very powerful tool for planning and detecting these shortcomings = artificial intelligence platform DataFromSky.
DataFromSky Aerial analysis is, for its high precision and detailed telemetry data about each traffic participant, utilized by many municipalities, transportation departments, traffic engineers, urban and city planners or universities and research institutions worldwide. Our Aerial analysis is often used as an input for various traffic simulation models, or in behavioral studies of drivers for self-driving vehicles.

(play the video from 0:35 – 5:15, available only in Czech/Slovak language).
DataFromSky is often utilized in the traffic research related to traffic congestion. Therefore, we were asked to comment on traffic difficulties on Czech highways during the previous days. You can watch the evening news video here. Our part starts at 5:05. Enjoy it!
Our team of DataFromSky comes up with lots of news, opening online webinars for our customers, potential clients and partners is one of it! We would like to get more in touch with You; therefore, we decided to start sharing our knowledge through a creative way via online web seminars, where everyone can contribute to the debate.
Agenda of DFS WEBINARS:
– Introduction of the project
– DataFromSky Viewer – software tool for advanced interpretation of traffic data
– DataFromSky Traffic drone & Traffic Balloon – special hardware for precise data collecting
– Practical demonstrations of application of DataFromSky in traffic analysis
– Research & Development – detection of near accidents, real-time traffic data
The webinar is opened and higly recommended for everyone, who is interested in learning more about DataFromSky! The only thing you have to do to join the online seminar, is to send your registration via email to the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please, mention the days, that would be suitable for You. The confirmation with the specification of the date and time block of the webinar will be sent back to your email afterwards.
One online webinar would take around half an hour and one time block is limited for maximum of 7 participants.
First webinars will start from 1. 3. 2017!
Do not hesitate and join our online web seminar to find out more interesting characteristics about DataFromSky.
We are looking forward to connecting on DFS WEBINAR!
We wish to share a couple of interesting features that will be coming to DataFromSky soon. Currently, DataFromSky understands vehicles only as points. This is an outcome of using the particular technology which we chose. However, this results in one very important drawback: We can’t tell real distance between vehicles. Incidentally, we hope for many applications, which would need precise measurement of distances starting from the actual metal, not an ideal point. After this introduction, it should come as no surprise that we are working on detection of vehicle bounding boxes. This will enable much better distance measurement for safety evaluations.
Another improvement in the pipeline is addition of anonymization functions. As you can imagine, aerial recording in urban areas results in a lot of areas being exposed, while they are assumed to be hidden from sight. To protect privacy, DataFromSky will allow marking of areas for blurring or blanking.
We hope to add this soon, so stay tuned for new versions!
