It’s a great encouragement for the next Innovation in the smart city industry we are working on now ⭐️ the FLOW ⭐️ one framework for all traffic tasks which will be introduced at inon 19th-21th November. More information at https://bit.ly/2OWZALW. I will be more than happy to see you there. 🚙 🚌 🚚 🛵
DataFromSky presented at the annual event – 🌙 Night of Scientists 2019 which take place on Friday September 27th in many scientific and educational institutions throughout the Czech Republic. The theme of this year’s scientists’ night was: 🌍 “Gentle to the planet”. We presented our long-term cooperation with Brno University of Technology, which is supported by Technology Agency of the Czech Republic. Whole presentation was very successful. We received the most questions about our safety analysis, which attracted the audience the most.

How to deal with busy streets in the center of Berlin? Buses, trams, cars, cyclists, pedestrians can be seen everywhere moving without any rules. Is it possible to build car-free, bicycle-friendly & human-oriented city? Macromedia University of Applied Science in Berlin did concentrate on this issue as a part of Master Course Smart City Design and DataFromSky played a key role in the process of analysis of traffic and behavioral patterns and creating proposals for design changes!
How was the whole concept proceed?
Different groups of objects have been defined at the beginning of the analysis. Then a video of chosen intersection or street was taken and analyzed by DataFromSky software. Based on these data new concept of the intersection/street was designed.
Students have chosen different places around Berlin for the analysis. We have decided to choose 3 of them as a Use Case of our DataFromSky Light service.
Crossing Redesign Analysis and Concept
This analysis was done for an Intersection of Köpenicker Straße and Manteuffelstraße. Video from this intersection was analyzed by DataFromSky to get number of objects. Based on obtained data new concept of the people-oriented street was designed. New concept includes 2-Way Bike lane with limited speed, lines for cars & buses with slowing elements and giant crosswalk in the middle of the intersection with light signalization that helps to manage the flow of all participants.

Car-Free & Bicycle-Friendly & Human-oriented place
One of the analysis was focused on the heavy used intersection of Kurfürstendamm and Joachimsthaler Straße nearby Berlin city center. The aim of this analysis was to design car-free, bicycle-friendly & human-oriented place. Thanks to DataFromSky software most common vehicle, bicycle paths and pedestrians movements were identified and based on these data new concept of car-free place was designed. See the analysis output below:

Aim of this analysis was to analyze and design new car-free concept of Bergmanstrasse in Bergmannkiez. The objects (such as Cars, Bicycles and Motorcycles) were analyzed by DataFromSky software – counted, analyzed the trajectories, behavior patterns etc. Based on this analysis new concept of street lanes were defined. See a proposed design below:

ROELOFS, an exclusive partner of DataFromSky in the Netherlands, carried out comprehensive traffic research of a traffic node in the province of Gelderland. The data collected with a drone and analyzed by DataFromSky Aerial platform will be used as the main source for a study for planned major maintenance in 2021.
The drone was deployed at the roundabout of the N318 Misterweg in Winterswijk. When preparing for the major maintenance of this road, it is also being examined whether road safety can be improved. Besides other things, DataFromSky offers many great features for analysis of traffic behavior and road safety, including analysis of risky situations or near collisions, calculation of Time to Collision, Heavy Breaking and analysis of many other factors.
For many years, the data were collected by people standing on the side and observing the traffic, then the data were evaluated manually. This process was lengthy, inefficient, and had low-precision data output. All of these shortcomings are overtaken with a new modern approach combining 2 great technologies of today world: drones and AI.
Traffic flow – trajectories: green – cars, yellow – heavy vehicles, red – bicycles, blue – pedestrians

We have moved from the Sky to the Ski!
With our newly released DataFromSky Light, we are testing the software in unusual conditions and scenarios. Counting how many skiers are on the slopes? Not a problem at all. With our software, one can easily analyze how many people are currently on the slope, how many are waiting by the ski lifts, how many of them just stopped by a ski bar or restaurant or who is skiing outside marked slopes and much more!
You still have a chance to try the software on your own video, free of charge. It could be another atypical record, but keep in mind the recommended parameters for the input video (to achieve the best results with the highest accuracy):

A very good summarizing article about the capabilities of DataFromSky and how the advanced image data processing is contributing to optimize the urban mobility has been published on LinkedIn. Several use cases in which the data from the sky might be helpful are described by this article:
– possibility of analyzing the traffic node in terms of traffic safety – based on the detection of risky situations, near accidents and collisions
– analysis of interaction of vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians in public areas such as in surroundings of schools, city centers, bus and train stations etc.
– studies of parking lots utilization, behavior of vehicles in a carpark
– and many other applications which you can think about
To summarize, the greatest benefits of traffic research from the aerial video using advanced software for image processing are:
A) Accurate and detailed data about traffic from the bird’s eye perspective:
– complete trajectory and moving patterns of each traffic participant
– complex OD- matrix – vehicle counts, turning movements
– speed and acceleration profile of each vehicle
– vehicle classification into categories (car / heavy vehicle / bus, / motorcycle etc.)
– measurement of travel time and stationary time (queuing time)
– advanced heatmaps based on the velocity, acceleration, traffic flow
– evaluation of traffic safety (detection of near accidents based on calculation of Time to Collision [TTC], detection of risky situations or inappropriate driving behavior, heavy breaking)
B) Reliable, detailed research without influencing traffic behavior (inconspicuous solution).
C) Ultimate traffic research, almost without a human intervention – based on the machine learning and DNN.
D) Powerful tool which can improve traffic safety and urban planning of many Smart cities.
