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.

    Multicriteria selection of trajectories in DFS Viewer

    How to apply multicriteria selection for all trajectories and choose only the ones you want? With DataFromSky Viewer – sofisticated software for advanced traffic data interpretation and visualization, you are able to create not only the simple Origin Destination Matrix, but with advanced setttings, the multi-criteria selection for the trajectories can be applied.

    Following gif presents detailed process, how to do it:

    Usecase shown in the gif
    If you want to track particular path and see how many vehicles have used that combination, a selection tool can be used.
    In step 1, selection criteria for Entry and Exit gate were defined and all the trajectories, which have not used this combination were removed. After this selection, 4 trajectories remain.
    Step 2 – As we wanted to know, how many cars leaving the service station in the South exit will turn right on the crossroad, another selection critera was applied. This condition specifies that only trajectories, which have used the combination Entry gate: south exit of the service station and Exit gate: turning right on the traffic lights, will be shown. Finally, only 2 trajectories left, which fulfill all the above defined criteria.

    Why is the multi-criteria selection useful?
    – show only the trajectories you want
    – monitor and analyze traffic behavior in a defined way
    – monitor time cars spend in service station / facilities
    – find traffic patterns, identify problematic zones

    Transforming aerial video data into knowledge

    DataFromSky is a unique solution for motion analysis of aerial video data. The ability to detect, track and classify moving objects from aerial videos provided by drones, fixed cameras or other video sources opens new possibilities in the field of traffic monitoring. The technology behind is under intensive development and grows more efficient every day through the embedded capability of learning from its mistakes. We are happy to announce that we have made a significant step towards enhanced accuracy thanks to the complex integration of deep neural networks into DataFromSky framework. Our deep neural networks are being trained on millions of samples 24 hours a day. The quality is quite impressive right now!

    Our tool for trajectory interpretation DataFromSky Viewer also comes with a new functionality. The new version extracts parameters which are sometimes difficult to obtain, such as gap-time, time to follow, heatmaps, and dimensions of vehicles. We recognize the potential of the data we are able to obtain, and, therefore, co-work on our tools with traffic researchers and traffic engineers worldwide. The video below demonstrates the new functionality of DataFromSky Viewer. Take a look!
