Katie is a free broadcast platform, that streams simulated road traffic data.
It means Katie shares with you, for free, data that represents simulated road traffic. You know, vehicles, streets, junctions, traffic lights. Data are generated by an external simulator and Katie makes it available for everyone, without any cost, without any information request. Not even your email is required.
Data is knowledge, power and ... fun! Here are some things you can do with our data:
Data are publicly available via websocket connections open to the world. Moreover, we have built clients for downloading and streaming in real time this data, so that you can download and run your favorite in a few click. Check out this GitHub project.
This is an experimental platform built for data scientists and researchers. We plan on releasing as many clients as we can, for the most common science-oriented languages (R, MatLab, etc.): at the moment only the Python client is available. We also plan on integrating much more complex simulators than the current one, potentially a microscopic simulator like SUMO.
It is possible! But please get in touch first, by opening a ticket.
True! We are still in beta, and we plan on integrating a large and realistic model as soon as possible, perhaps using SUMO.
Not yet :) But if you are interested and may be planning to contribute, definitely get in touch!
