Detecting traffic in real time

We keep tabs on traffic throughout the city with the aid of interconnected  counting stations. 


With this project, we fitted thermal imaging cameras to traffic lights in 420 locations in central Hamburg. Don’t worry: we don’t store any images of faces or number plates. We supply this data to the Urban Data Platform, which we also like to call the data hub. From there, it is used by various transport planners, for example, to optimise traffic. We digitise traffic so that you spend less time in hold-ups and get to your destination faster.
