Smart technologies have become the preferred choice of city governments for traffic management. These solutions reduce infrastructure costs by billions while improving the safety and reliability of citizens.
Smart technologies reduce congestion using the latest Internet of Things(IoT) to optimize traffic flow, and improve safety. These systems integrate a range of hardware, software and cloud technology to dynamically adjust traffic lights, freeway on-ramp meters, bus rapid transit lanes, highway message boards and speed limits.
Intelligent traffic lights can adjust the length of green and red signals in real-time to maximize efficiency and protect pedestrians and bicyclists from collisions. They can also alert road users to pedestrians or other road users. They allow emergency vehicles priority and support lane changing in an intersection.
These systems are able react quickly and effectively to changing traffic patterns. They also reduce waiting times at intersections, as well fuel consumption and vehicle pollution. These sensors, cellular technologies and other components can be integrated in existing or new infrastructure.
Adaptive Traffic Control can also improve the air quality by reducing engine emission and energy consumption due to idling while keeping cars technologytraffic.com/2020/05/01/modern-traffic-technologies-by-board-room moving. This is achieved using a combination data from sensors, cameras and cellular technologies to dynamically adapt traffic lights, entry alerts and express buses lanes.
Network connectivity is crucial to ensure that this information reaches its destination. It must support large quantities of data, with ultra-low-latency and 100% availability.
