Our Story

Valerann was founded in order to bring a different perspective to the intelligent transportation industry by turning the existing road infrastructure into a comprehensive source of data.

We are data advocates looking to disrupt the transport industry by enabling the road to be an active part of the mobility ecosystem. We created a new data stream for applications, which is not user-dependent, transforms the operations of road management, and provide external information to connected vehicles.

Valerann strives to make roads smart everywhere around the globe, on our way to becoming the leading data provider of the intelligent transportation industry. We aim to support and enhance the smart transportation revolution and serve as an enabler of advanced technological developments.
