Affordable and yet intricate traffic counts of traffic volumes are essential for transport-related studies.  Within the 'Telraam‘-project, we developed 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 starting using 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.

At this very moment, Telraam keeps on extending geographically.  Simultaneously, we keep on developing new ways of using the Telraam device for various purposes. Have a look at our interactive map on the Telraamwebsite to see where we are active.

Do you want a Telraam of your own? Take a look at ‘Start Counting’ and discover where Telraam is counting already, how you can connect to it yourself or how to set up your own counting network.

Telraam also has a customised offer for both local and regional authorities. A range of formulas with complete involvement pathways are being developed. They can run from the roll-out of a small-scale counting network, through to data analysis and practical policy consultancy on the basis of the generated data.
