The reduction of the efficiency of road projects in Ecuador, in the context of evaluating vehicular flow and the demand for cutting-edge technology. Since vehicle flow modeling is imprecise, it is important to recognize that this situation denotes the need to use new technological and innovative methodologies. Unmanned aircraft (Drone); allow the behavior of moving objects to be observed in real-time, being a novel research technique that allows data to be obtained effectively, efficiently, economically, and less invasively. In the investigation, the aforementioned equipment was used with a flight duration given between 25 to 30 minutes; in addition, the vehicle content files allowed the information to be processed in a systematized way with digital exclusivity, recognizing that both the information of the technological method and in the traditional, record at 15-minute intervals. The methods allowed to determine the demand for road service; however. The research recognizes the importance of studying the participants within the movement and strengthening street culture, both in the pedestrian and the user.
