Traffic analysis using a drone

ViNotion has, in collaboration with Antea Group, Rijkswaterstaat, Delft Dynamics and Dufec,  used a cable-connected drone to count traffic on the A1 highway near Muiden. “Counting traffic using a drone is safer, more accurate and more efficient. We require less manpower at the roadside and all processing is performed in a closed circuit system. When the drone is airborne, data is sent directly through the cable, which enables fast analysis and follow-up actions. Moreover, by using a cable-connected drone, accidents are almost impossible” says Roel Brandt, project manager of Smart Mobility at Antea Group.

Using advanced video analysis, ViSense is able to fully automatically recognize vehicles on the road as well as the direction in which they are heading.
