Fyma and LMT to offer AI-based traffic analytics in the Baltics

The computer vision startup Fyma is collaborating with mobile technology innovator LMT to develop computer vision and AI-powered road analytics services for municipalities in the Baltics. It will provide insight into urban movement and behaviour, thus informing city planners to empower decision making in regards to urban development. 

The solution can identify traffic volume, type of traffic (ex. pedestrian, car, bicycle, etc.), dwell time (the amount of time they stay in the observed location), trajectory, as well as the demographics of observed humans. The functionality requires a single camera to observe and analyse movement in any indoor or outdoor location. It will help city planners identify most dangerous locations in the city, which require additional infrastructure, as well as the ability to track offences for further planning. 

The service is completely General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliant. It can only be used to acquire anonymous analytical data – no video is kept, images are not viewed, and faces are not identified by the software.

The product will consist of a full-service traffic monitoring solution, including camera setup, analytic software, and maintenance. It has previously been piloted in the city of Valmiera in collaboration with Vidzeme University. There, it was used as a part of a scientific study to understand human behaviour around a Covid-19 informational poster, and ran for three months. It is also currently being tested in the London Olympic Legacy Park, where the AI is being trained to detect and analyse e-scooter and e-bike traffic, as it is a growing concern in many municipalities.

The product is available to municipalities and governments in the Baltic countries of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. It can be licensed via a monthly subscription fee. The end-to-end service includes mounting the devices, taking them down or moving them to a new location, device maintenance as well as providing access to the control panel.
