Idaso (Innovative Data Solutions) Idaso was founded to create free flowing data to enable free-flowing cities. Our Smart cities software solutions are used in Europe, North America, and Asia to gather and add value to traffic and transportation data. Traffic and planning consultants use this insight to design safer roads, ease traffic congestion and provide a healthier urban environment for all citizens. We first turned our attention to the temporary traffic data collection industry where we optimised the existing manual counting process by developing SmarterCounting a computer-aided manual counting solution. In order to assist in accelerating the speed of turnaround times, we then released Global Team a crowdsourced labour force that enables traffic data collection professionals to upload their video footage to a platform where trained personnel from anywhere in the world can extract the data using SmarterCounting. Complete automation is the next step for Idaso and the first fully automated solution is set for release later this year.
