We get a lot of questions and doubts about the dates and relationships between large vehicles and cars, the first week/days that a Telraam counts.
At the end of the registration procedure you will receive the following notification:
CAUTION: Telraam needs time to calibrate itself.
This means that the data of the first hours and days are not reliable. This improves automatically the longer your Telraam is active. This takes a maximum of one week.
Why a week? During the first week of counting, there are too few data points to make a good difference between car and large vehicles for a specific Abacus ("cut-off"). That is why the Abacus uses a general rule for this cut-off during the first few days. This is of course much less correct, because it is not specific for the Abacus.
Every Sunday, the entire system is re-evaluated and if possible, a new cut-off will be used to count specifically for each Telraam from Monday onwards. From the following Monday, you will see a different, more accurate, distribution of car/large vehicles.
However, we always ask you to be careful when using counting data from Telraam of large vehicles. These data do not have the same accuracy as the Telraam data of cars.
