Our partner Roelofs has made an analysis with DataFromSky for a big junction in the city center of Brussel, Belgium. The analysis covers the junction between the Leopold II Lane and Sainctelette – one of the biggest and most complex junctions in Brussel. In this case, the video is made by a tethered drone to get a longer survey. Thanks to DataFromSky, it is possible to create a detailed traffic study which was handled to the government of Brussel and its Mobility department, providing the correct data for creating solutions that can improve the traffic flow and safety of this junction.
DataFromSky Aerial analysis is providing complete and detailed telemetry data about each traffic participant:
complete object trajectories (time, position, speed, acceleration in coordinate system UTM or WGS84) – visualization in program or various exports
classification of all objects into 7 main categories (including bicycles and pedestrians)
vehicle counts via configurable counting gates
detailed OD matrix and turning movements count in defined directions
speed and acceleration anywhere in the scene, heatmaps
measurement of critical headway (gap) and follow-up headway
safety analysis (Time to collision measurement, PET, Heavy breaking etc.)
and much more!

Roelofs, partner of DataFromSky for BENELUX region, is participating on the National Traffic Science Congress, held on 31st October and 1st November 2018 in Conference Center in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands.
During the congress on November 1st, Mr. Tim Adema, the head of the Traffic & Transport cluster in Roelofs, will give a lecture on the Traffic Research and will discuss the use of drones and advanced software analytics in traffic surveys. The topic to the discussion is also what are the main advantages of drones in traffic surveys over the traditional methods.
Do not miss the lecture Traffic research 2.0: Thursday 1 November 15:40 and find out more about the innovative approach of the traffic surveys using drones and DataFromSky software!
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 .
