In the framework of the Horizon 2020 WeCount project Telraam is, spring 2020, returning to the place where it all started, Leuven in Belgium.
In spring 2019, a small-scale test pilot with 100 newly-developed traffic counting devices, named Telraam, was carried out in Kessel-Lo, a dense neighbourhood in the city of Leuven. Aim was to investigate both the added value of those traffic counts for the sake of planning and policy making. Second part of this pilot was to test the citizen engagement aspect. Would the audience appreciate this citizen-science tool, and would they volunteer to host such device at their homes. Ever since, the return on both of these aspects has been overwhelming.
