An article about DataFromSky appeared in an e-magazine Xataka. This online newsletter focuses on smart solutions in various areas, including smart businesses, smart cities and municipalities, or smart government. The article describes our path to success, how the project DataFromSky originated, what are our achievements and future goals.
The article also describes how the data is collected and what are some special conditions and requirement for the input video for DataFromSky analysis and mentions some legal restrictions for drones and other small UAVs that vary from country to country. Further on, the process of data and trajectory extraction using the DNN and machine learning is simply explained.
Our CEO also explains the future plans and vision of DataFromSky: “We want to apply everything we have learned with our algorithms for detecting vehicles and people in services such as traffic surveillance. And here we are not talking about a post-processed analysis, but monitoring and analyzing the data in real time directly on site. This could be done by drones or by fixed cameras, and would not be limited to detecting excesses of speed. The idea is to be able to determine aggressive driving, a sufficient safety distance between cars, calculate an excess of emissions or something as simple as counting the number of cars that pass through a point in a certain period of time, matched with a license plate. It would be a big evolution of the dreaded traffic cameras that are limited to detecting speeding nowadays.”
