SigncoServ: a brief history

Since 2017, Metanous has been working on SigncoServ, an integrated platform for traffic measurements and traffic control. Regularly, expansions are added to the platform.

Below, you can find a brief history with the main milestones that have been achieved. But there is still much more to tell about the work that has been done since 2017. Do you want to know more about this? Do you have a project where we can help?

SigncoServ in statistics


Since SigncoServ started measuring in late 2017, more than 1.2 billion vehicles have been measured.


The 1.2 billion vehicles were measured at slightly over 9,000 measurement points, mainly spread within Flanders.


Meanwhile, more than 200 organizations use SigncoServ for monitoring or performing traffic measurements.


The number of measuring devices connected to the SigncoServ platform is also steadily increasing. It's clear that the introduction of the proprietary hardware (in 2021) has caused a strong growth in connected devices.


Finally, the objective of using SigncoServ is to support and/or justify policy. It is therefore not surprising that all measurement results can be consulted in the form of advanced reports.
