DataFromSky analyzed huge intersection near Dubai!

Recently, DataFromSky has performed traffic analysis of another video from United Arab Emirates, Dubai! This huge multilevel intersection in the middle of the arabic desert, which you can see in the video below, was a challenging task due to the large area covered and the weather and climate environment with very dusty and sandy conditions. The object of the analysis was monitoring of traffic behaviour in this vast area with traffic density reaching almost 8 500 vehicles per hour!

As you may see in the video, large area of one busy cloverleaf near the city of Dubai was analyzed – the average length of one trajectory in the video reaches 800 meters.

If you regurarly follow our website, you may know, that we are still working on development of mobile solution, which will be capable of collecting and analyzing traffic data in real time. This smart UAV analyzer will be a subsystem of Intelligent Transportation System (ITS). The main objective is to design the cutting edge technology: an UAV based solution for the purpose of active traffic management over a road network.

Curtin U evaluate UAV use for traffic data

Sam Ziusudras, from Curtin University’s Civil Engineering department is evaluating the reliability of the traffic data obtained from small Unmanned Airborne Vehicles in generating Origin-Destination matrices for intersections. As a part of this study, Sam and the research team will be flying a drone to capture video from the flow of the traffic through an intersection in Western Australia. The trajectories would then be extracted using DataFromSky Services, and finally compared to the ‘manual count’ of volume studies for any discrepancies.

Here’s a video from their first test:
