Telraam actively engages with citizens to deliver traffic counts.
Residents are motivated to discover how much and what kind of traffic passes along through their street and so have a direct personal involvement in local mobility policy. In this way, highly relevant traffic data is collected in a participatory manner that can underpin local policy decisions.
Citizens are guided throughout the entire Telraam project. They learn how to set-up their own fully automatic traffic counter and how to interpret the data and even to communicate about it. They can then collaborate with others, neighbours, local campaign groups, citizen movements and other counters across the world.
This way, participating citizens become citizen scientists that make constructive, objective and data-driven contributions to local mobility policy that is also engaging and relevant.
