With Telraam you can count the traffic in your street with a fully automatic counter. Below you can find out where Telraam networks are active. There are two ways to connect to the Telraam counters: as an individual counter or within a network. As an individual citizen you can buy your own Telraam device and count traffic in your street on your own via the Telraam platform. More info below under ‘My own Telraam’.
You can also connect to a Telraam network nearby. Below you will find the different networks currently launching. A Telraam network is usually commissioned by a (local) government. Within a network of Telramen in a certain zone, local guidance and workshops for counters are usually provided. In addition, all counting data within a network is collected and analysed centrally.
Soon Telraam networks will also start in the following cities, municipalities or neighbourhoods. As soon as the call for candidates is open, you will see it appear on this page.
Telraam started the first pilot network in March 2019, and remains a relatively new initiative. However, in the recent period, several counting networks have already been started in cooperation with cities and municipalities. These networks always have their own angle of approach. Responding to the local context and in response to a research question. See below for the specific set-up of each counting network with Telraam.
If you as a citizen want to start an experiment with several Telraam devices in your own city or neighborhood, this is possible. As an interested citizen, a group of friends, a neighbourhood committee, a school or an action group, you yourself can set up a Telraam at your window and launch and spread your own counting network.
How to do this? The components of a Telraam kit can be ordered online. Here you find all the criteria to install a Telraam. So check carefully to ensure you can tick all the boxes. If you have questions, take a look at the FAQ & Support page where experiences from previous Telraam networks is gathered.
Of course it is more interesting when citizens together with local policymakers can launch a network. The citizens receive support before, during and after the installation of the Telraam device. In addition the traffic data is centrally collected and accessible for all Telraam devices of a network. This to allow both policymakers and citizens to start working with the counting data.
Ask your local policymakers to support a counting network in their municipality.That way Telraam can work with citizens and policymakers in order to map out traffic in the municipality in a better way. Interested cities and municipalities can find information on the Governments page
