Smart technologies are used by city governments all over the world for traffic management. These solutions save billions on infrastructure costs and improve safety for citizens.
Smart technologies reduce congestion using the latest Internet of Things(IoT) to optimize traffic flow, and improve safety. These systems use a variety turning to data room to gain a competitive advantage in ma of hardware, computer software and cloud technologies to dynamically alter traffic lights and other elements such as freeway on-ramp metering, bus rapid transit lane, highway message boards, and speed limit signs.
Intelligent traffic lights adjust the length of the green and RED signals in real-time for maximum efficiency and to protect pedestrians and cyclists against collisions. They can also alert motorists to pedestrians and other road-users, give priority access to emergency vehicles and support lane-changes in an intersection.
These systems are able to react quickly and efficiently to changing traffic patterns, reducing wait times at intersections and cutting fuel consumption and vehicle emissions. These sensors and cellular technology can be integrated into new or existing infrastructure.
Adaptive Traffic Control can also improve the air quality by reducing engine emission and energy consumption due to idling while keeping cars moving. This is achieved through a combination of camera data, sensor networks, and cell technology to dynamically change traffic lights, entrance alarms, express bus lanes, and other features.
To ensure that all of this information is able to reach its intended destination, network connectivity is essential. It must have high bandwidth, ultra low latency, and 100% reliability for the large volumes of data needed for traffic-management solutions.
