Complex issues require quantitative traffic data to enhance our understanding and to find better solutions.
Gathering data to get a full picture of transport, leisure, and social activity for a network of streets is often impossible or very expensive with traditional tools like pneumatic tubes or manual counts.
Telraam sensors and networks provide a solution for citizens and their local representatives.
Telraam creates custom networks of sensors that leverage the knowledge
and access of local residents, using artificial intelligence (AI) technology to deliver consistent, timely, quality data for more efficient and effective infrastructure, traffic flow and traffic management plans.
Involving citizens and publishing open data brings researchers and policy makers into contact with local residents, creating the potential for interaction, dialogue, co-creation, and other forms of participation.
Telraam S2 is our newest device. It counts and classifies road users, providing anonymous, aggregate data per traffic mode and per direction with a 15 minute resolution. In addition, it derives an estimated speed distribution (and the V85 speed) for cars.
Telraam S2 uses specially-trained AI and a proprietary tracking algorithm to detect, classify, and count road users with high precision in a wide range of typical street environments. Citizens place a Telraam sensor in their window, and the data that is collected can be shared with local authorities and policy makers as Open Data.
Telraam devices can be set up by citizens on their individual streets, or by local campaign groups and government authorities who fund citizen networks to gather local traffic data.

The Telraam S2 is a custom device that sits in your window.
Once connected, you don’t need to do anything, just watch the counts as they happen.
The Telraam S2 has a low resolution camera (for privacy), an AI chip for detecting and categorising street users, and a built in mobile data connection that relays aggregated, anonymous data to the Telraam servers. The device simply needs to be powered and mounted on the inside of an upper-floor window with an unobstructed view over the street.
