📢 The masterpiece in traffic data extraction from drones – an open traffic dataset called pNEUMA is here!

100 busy intersections / 0.5 million of trajectories / covered more than 1.3 km^2 / gathered by 10 drones flying simultaneously. A first-of-its-kind experiment with open results was realized by professor Geroliminis and Emmanouil (Manos) Barmpounakis from EPFL (École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne), who provided the video data and analyzed by DataFromSky AI (

A swarm of drones hovered over the central business district of Athens over multiple dates to record traffic streams in congested areas with more than 100 km-lanes of the network. From each video, trajectory data was extracted by the most advanced traffic intelligence DataFromSky and merged into the one traffic scenario with multimodal interactions. 🚗 🚌 🚛 🚲 🏍

Due to the extreme accuracy of telemetry data about each driver, the dataset is suitable for multimodal traffic research including simulation methods, behavior models, road safety analysis..

⭐️ DataFromSky on the way to autonomous driving! ⭐️

Already since the end of last year, the Chair of Automobile Engineering from Technische Universität Dresden has been collecting traffic observation videos for selected places in Dresden in order to be able to study the real traffic situation better. The combination of DataFromSky advanced analysis of road user’s behavior with the electronic accident record card of the Saxony region can bring new knowledge into the reconstruction of traffic accidents. Such reconstructions can be used for test scenarios for the validation of automated driving functions! How cool is that? 🚗 🚌 🚛 🚲 🏍

📢 Accidents detection before they happen?

Extreme accuracy is the unique feature of traffic data automatically mined from DataFromSky videos. Thanks to this accuracy, we have, in cooperation with Brno University of Technology and its scientists, worked on a research project for evaluation of intersection in terms of safety in the last two years. One of the results of the project supported by Technology Agency of the Czech Republic is the methodology that has been certified by the Czech Ministry of Transport! 🚗 🚌 🚛 🚲 🏍 Want to learn more about conflict detection tools based on trajectory analysis (TTC, PoS, heavy breaking, …) and using DataFromSky for security audits?

📢 DataFromSky AI was used to define driving behavior models of connected autonomous vehicles!

DataFromSky highly contributed to the creation of a research paper conducted by 🎓 Loughborough University in London. The paper presents a solution of using infrastructure to aid connected autonomous vehicles to learn driving policies, specifically for complex junctions, which require local experience and knowledge to handle. The proposal is to learn safe driving policies through data-driven imitation learning of human-driven vehicles at a junction utilizing data captured from surveillance devices about vehicle movements at the junction. The framework is demonstrated by processing video datasets captured by UAVs from three intersections around Europe – the trajectory data is provided by the DataFromSky. An imitation learning algorithm based on a long short-term memory neural network is proposed to learn and predict safe trajectories of vehicles. 🚗🚌 🚐 🚛 🚲 🛵 ✔️ Read the full paper at We can make your survey ultimate!

Complex traffic study in Netherlands

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 .
