Telraam is the brainchild of two organisations based in Leuven (BE): Transport & Mobility Leuven (TML), a traffic engineering consultancy, and Mobiel21, an NGO focussing on citizen participation in the field of mobility.
Seeing how citizens science projects have been succesful to collect valuable data in collaboration with citizens in other fields like air quality data, we thought: we should be able to do the same with traffic counting data! And so, in 2019 we embarked on our journey to first develop a simple sensor and later in 2023 a purpose built sensor for collecting traffic counting data, together with citizens.
Our mission at Telraam is to become an ever growing international platform that empowers and educates citizens to become the future technicians and traffic engineers of their communities, who can bring local knowledge to the table, and become a driving force in conversations and debates on urban mobility policies that affect their neighborhoods.
We want to provide affordable solutions to connect citizens and their local governments, and facilitate the shift towards a more human-focused, multimodal traffic culture.
Coming from a traffic engineering background, we know traffic counting data. We breathe traffic counting data. We understand what type of data can be valuable for professionals. Are you a mobility professional; a non-profit organization, a traffic engineering or consultancy firm, a transport agency, or a local government?
Are you looking for affordable, multimodal traffic monitoring solutions for your projects that can be deployed on a large number of locations? Then Telraam is the right place for you!
