UrbanScan is a 5G IoT company developing a new class of outdoor monitoring platform that yields comprehensive real-time information about vehicles, pedestrians, and other entities in urban settings and beyond. Our system is based on an array of sensors that receive signals emitted by cellular networks that are reflected by objects in the surrounding area.



Disruptively Low Cost

Setup costs and life-cycle-costs per unit area are significantly lower than those of the alternatives (e.g., CCTV), making full (100%) coverage of wide outdoor areas feasible for the first time.


Very High Availability

Our solution can produce accurate information in all lighting and weather conditions.


Unprecedented Automation

The technology intrinsically supports highly automated scene analysis and efficient response to changing situations.


Minimal Invasion of Privacy

The system is fundamentally free of personal  identifiers, though entity identification data can be added from other sources.

No Need for Integration with Cellular Infrastructure

The system does not require a-priori information about or direct connection to the cellular infrastructure.
