Telraam, a fully automated sensor to count traffic
Telraam develops high-tech and reliable measuring equipment that is made available to interested citizens. They are helped to set up their own fully automatic traffic counters. Then they mount them in their front windows, and traffic counting can start. That, in a nutshell, is Telraam. All the collected counts are made available for policymaking and research, but also to all residents and interested parties.

Telraam, the web platform
The data are open to all. You can access them at www.telraam.net. Without a Telraam account you can view all data. With an account you can do a Telraam installation, adjust settings in your own dashboard and do street comparisons between your own street (counting data) and other streets. The API is also open for use. Click here for more info.
Citizen Science fills blind spots
Until now traffic counts have been a blind spot. Telraam is working actively to involve citizens and provide good traffic counts. Telraam handles the research work and the technology. Citizens supply the data. Participants find out about traffic in their street, and at the same time help the public authorities with good traffic counts. The data can be used to make infrastructure, traffic lights and traffic management plans more efficient and more effective.
