What is 'Open Data Cam'?

'Open Data Cam' is a tool that helps to quantify the world. With computer vision 'Open Data Cam' understands and quantifies what it sees. The simple DIY setup allows everybody to become an urban data miner.

'Open Data Cam' can help cities become smarter. One way of understanding smart cities is the combination of urban areas and emerging technology. 'Open Data Cam' can help cities (via its citizens, institutions, scientists and decision makers) to make more sense of its surroundings, by using data points created from live recording.

Can I make my own 'Open Data Cam'?

'Open Data Cam' is runs on a NVIDIA Jetson TX2 GPU Board and other off-the-shelf equipment (~500$). All software is based on open source components and runs completely locally. The current setup is optimized for a “smart traffic cam” setup detecting & counting traffic participants. The project follows the “release early” philosophy and should be considered as an alpha release.

Good Bye moovel lab. Hello move lab!

...nope, you didn't have a typo in the URL. You're right where you wanted to be. Our the new home to moovel lab! Do you like it? From here on out, we will be part of REACH NOW. We're super excited about this new chapter in the life of this little lab of ours. In addition to new colors and logos, the biggest change is that we will no longer be located in the Swabian countryside, but rather smack in the heart of urban life in Germany: Berlin.
