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. Whether you are a city, a mapping company, or a mobility service, our AI combined with an unmatched accuracy of traffic data can propel your services and products to a new level.

 

For the first time within the city landscape, Hannah is providing a cloud-based solution allowing anonymous data sharing. We believe this new business model, exemplifies our progressive approach to ethical data handling.

 

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 used by connected and autonomous vehicles. 

We connect key players on the road with our unique, open data platform. We believe this will help cities manage traffic and allow new and existing technologies to benefit and grow.
