City of Stockholm: Viscando will help optimize intersections

Detailed intersection analyses for deeper traffik insights!

City of Stockholm has chose Viscando as the sole supplier of advanced and detailed intersection analyses. The agreement is valid for the two coming years with the possiblity of extension with further two years.

Besides counting, Viscando will also deliver origin-destination matrices and visualize and analyze road user behavior. With data from Viscando, the city will optimize the trafficflow and improve traffic safety in intersections.

The Covid-19 discount effect in traffic volume as well as Viscando price

At Viscando we work mainly from home but can be reached by phone and email as usual.

We follow the Covid-19 development in general and from a traffic perspective in particular where the situation has also become an involuntary experiment in traffic. Roads that previously were bottlenecks, today are relatively empty. When traffic in the near future normalizes, there is an opportunity to study how traffic in certain places reaches the capacity ceiling. As a part and support of this work, Viscando is currently offering a 15% discount on measuring stations to monitor the development of flows for motor vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians.

The graphs above shows one example of the great usuage of continous traffic data. City of Stockholm currently has 14 OTUS3D stations for real-time counting of pedestrians. The city have chosen representative locations to cover various traffic situations to get an overall picture of pedestrian flows. In this case Viscando has chosen to group the counting stations into three groups: central location, suburban areas and working places. The graphs clearly show that the effect of COVID-19 is highly varying, depending on the type of location.

We will be happy to assits you in choosing representative locations for continous couting, to maximize the benefits of the permanent counters as well as your temporary counting projects.

Viscando OTUS3D at the Swedish Embassy in Washington

A one-year exhibition at Swedish Embassy in Washington will show the Viscando OTUS3D system.

According to the UN, another 2.5 billion people are expected to live in cities by 2050. This require cities to find new ways to handle the increased demands on natural resources, housing and infrastructure. The Global Goals for Sustainable Development, Agenda 2030, adopted by all UN member states in 2015, call for urgent action.

The exhibition is called Urban Challenges and presents some of the social, economic and technological solutions that Swedish actors have developed to meet the cities challenges.
The exhibition is open to the public on weekends in the Embassy, House of Sweden at the 2900 K Street Northwest, Northwest Washington, Washington, D.C.  -Welcome!

Prestigious Road Safety Award in Belgium

On 10th March, at the Flemish Road Safety Congress 2020, the Province of Antwerp won the Flemish Road Safety Award for their BITS pilot project using Viscando OTUS3D to improve road safety for cyclists.

“Through this technology, a daily average of 24 near accidents between cyclists was detected. Additionally, the analysis shows that the number of near accidents between cyclists and motorized traffic (daily average of eight) is as high as the number of near accidents between motorized traffic (daily average of seven). The specificity of this retrieved data will help guide the development and implementation of effective road safety measures.” Explains Luk Lemmens, Legal Representative for Mobility

Ronald Jorna, BITS Project Manager from the Province of Overijssel, believes the success of this pilot sets the tone for our future BITS pilots: “The award-winning 3D-camera project in the Province of Antwerp clearly shows that ITS can help to improve the safety of cyclists. We expect that other ITS implementations in the BITS project will show that ITS can also improve the speed, comfort and/or cycling experience. This will make cycling smarter and thus more attractive!”.

"What makes us especially proud is the fact that the Province Antwerp and the municipality of Bornem could  very quickly develop a new and safer road design, using our data and analysis. We also hope and look forward to an after measurement and analysis to assess the new road design in an objective and quantitative way.", says Amritpal Singh, CEO of Viscando.
