Traffic counts are essential for a sound mobility policy. Countings that are multimodal, and
thus register cars, heavy traffic as well as cyclists and pedestrians, are the base of any traffic engineering study. Classic traffic counts
are limited today: both in time and in counting modes. In addition, they are often expensive and not very transparent.
New technologies provide innovative measurement methods. Telraam has developed high-tech and reliable measuring equipment that measures and analyse traffic in a finely-meshed, continuous, multimodal way and in conjunction with citizens. Telraam provides the right research question and the appropriate research technology, and the citizens count and think along with it.
For this purpose, we developed a Telraam trajectory that we offer to local governments. The local government chooses a programme of, for example, 8 months, citizens can apply and start counting after screening and selection. Data analysis and support is provided during the process. Telraam takes care of everything and provides support from start to finish.
Telraam actively engages with citizens to deliver traffic counts. Based on their
interest in local mobility policy, residents are keen to discover how much and what kind of traffic comes through their streets.
street. In this way, highly relevant traffic data is collected in a participatory manner to underpin your policy decisions.

Citizens are guided through the entire Telraam project. They learn how to install their own fully automatic traffic counter correctly. They learn how to install their own fully automatic traffic counter in a correct way. In addition, they learn to interpret the data and to communicate about it.
This way, the participating citizen becomes a citizen scientist who makes a constructive contribution to local mobility policy in an objective data-driven way.

The collected counting data are a valuable basis to be used in traffic and mobility plans of a city or municipality.
Telraam data can also be used to measure the concrete impact of a planned mobility impact of a planned mobility measure or intervention in your municipality. In this way, the collected measurement data supports policy measures.
The data can also be used by researchers, residents and interested parties to support a position or choice
After several months of counting, the participants come together again for a Telraam data workshop.
The traffic data collected by the Telraam devices in the counting network are explained. In this workshop we make analyses in a participative way, draw conclusions and formulate proposals, together with citizens. In In consultation with the local government, certain accents can be set or specific measures and traffic situations can be included.
The data workshop focuses on using the unique knowledge of the local context of the participating citizens. After all, who knows their own street better than those who live there?
Open and transparent traffic data are essential for mobility policy.
The open data also offers the opportunity for other interested parties to look into the matter. Telraam provides the following tools for this:
A Telraam trajectory in which citizen science and the collection of objective multimodal traffic data track together,
offers a unique proposition. Due to the well-considered combination of the different building blocks in a Telraam project and our experience with dozens of Telraam projects for local governments, we have been able to
Telraam projects for local authorities, we have the expertise to develop a successful Telraam project for your city or municipality.
For an Telraam project tailored to your municipality and fitting the local policy context, we can put forward a suitable project proposal. If you would like more information or a quotation, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, we will be pleased to help you.
