From 2018 to 2020
Affordable and yet intricate traffic counts of traffic volumes are essential for transport-related studies.  Within the 'Telraam‘-project, we develop an integrated application based on low-cost hardware and a public online platform allowing citizens to perform traffic counts. Pedestrians, cyclists, cars and heavy vehicles are each counted  individually when passing along the traffic count sensor.  The resulting traffic data can be used to perform traffic engeneering studies.  This way, citizens and citizen platforms get objective data, allowing them to engage in a dialogue with their local government.  This could result in actions such as for instance a modification of the driving direction, the redesign of the public space, an improvent of the cycling conditions, or a modification of the parking facilities. 
TML develops the architecture, the hardware and the software for the sensor, and uses the resulting traffic count data in a pilot case in Kessel-Lo to showcase the possibilities of the application to both citizens as well as local governments.
In the pilot case in Kessel-Lo, we roll out a local network of 100 counting points.  Furthermore, we provide for 100 additional sensors to set up small networks in other places in Flanders. 

At the end of this project, we expect the number of sensors to further grow organically and the emergence of new applications that will make use of the traffic count data.
