Digitalisation is a tool that can help planners make more informed decisions and ultimately create safer roads. The Swedish company Viscando has created a system that helps gather data that is useful to see traffic trends and behaviour, that help create safer roads.
Viscando started in 2014, and since then, the company has come a long way. From being a small startup in Sweden, Viscando is now working all over the Nordics and have plans to expand to other markets in Europe and beyond.
With employers with a background in professional cameras and advanced sensor development for the defence industry, Viscando has long experience in the possibilities of digitalisation and are constantly developing to create smarter solutions beyond the traditional induction loops.
How it works
For traffic planners, urban developers and public road engineers, data is crucial to make informed decisions when developing cities. Viscando uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to predict potential conflict solutions in traffic and control the traffic lights in real-time. The company’s smart sensor technology can not only detect cars, but also cyclists and pedestrians that move more unpredictably in traffic.
With Viscando’s system VisualDB, the data is presented in user-friendly graphs and diagrams, making it easy to export, share or integrate to the customer’s website. The system also captures movement patterns, road user behaviour and interactions. The technology used is 3D vision and artificial intelligence.
Viscando has been named one of the most promising startups in Sweden and the company is now ready to take the next step out in the world.
