Tomorrow's Cities Today

The Hannah Systems open data platform is the foundation for cities and companies looking to improve pedestrian safety, reduce emissions, streamline traffic and address the needs of the AV industry, without the need for personalized data.


Hannah builds the most powerful, real-time tools to power the future of our cities. We can deliver professional services to cities at a fraction of the cost. Our traffic AI combined with our unique object recognition software allows cities to count, measure and analyze lane-level detail 24x7, 365 days a year.


For the first time within the city landscape, this disruptive software can detect cars, trucks, buses, cyclists, and pedestrians including speed and geo-location with no additional installation cost and utilizing existing camera data

Introducing Hannah Systems

True Empowerment

Hannah translates and converts the images of CCTV camera data into object classification without reliance on specialized equipment. We add our traffic AI and geo-positioning (more accurate than GPS) to build a detailed virtual microsimulation model of every intersection. This creates dynamic machine-readable data that can be used by connected and autonomous vehicles. 

For cities, traditional studies of vehicle counts, movements and speed can be expensive.  With Hannah, our systems can run continuously allowing the city to see features and data that would normally cost a fortune and take considerable time.  If you have camera installed at an intersection we can start to deliver unique data sets immediately with no roadside installation.

Our AI

We believe the future of AVs is dependent on vehicles having a deep intelligent understanding of cities from the minute they are on the road.

The Hannah AI is developed for the future of AVs, allowing the habits and cultural differences of cities and countries to be understood based on the data we collect. 

We see a future where AVs can be manufactured anywhere in the world and programmed with intelligence and understand to know the difference between driving autonomously in Zurich, Milan, Bombay, Helsinki, or San Francisco.

An AI that has an instant understanding of weather conditions, pedestrian habits, and other driver behavior.
