Smart Technologies for Traffic

Cities are using smart traffic technology to reduce energy waste and increase road safety urban traffic congestion is becoming more frequent. This helps passengers and drivers save time, reduces emissions and delays in traffic.

The technology behind this is based on two fundamental elements: Hardware and software. The former is the subcomponent that executes, while it is used as the command and control center. Both are supported by advanced processing and sensing technologies such as ANPR (automotive license plate recognition) which records data about vehicles’ movements and is able to detect traffic signs.

Depending on the solution utilized, data can be processed on-device using smart traffic lights, or sent to a cloud. The latter allows for more sophisticated modeling and analysis to reduce traffic congestion and coordinate public transport schedules. In this way, they can reduce the average travel time by 25%, cut down time to signal by 40%, and decrease emissions by 20% according to Carnegie Mellon University.

In addition to reducing traffic signals’ control delays, a smart traffic light system can enhance the flow of pedestrians as well as micromobility vehicles such electric bikes and e-scooters. This is because they’re typically not able comply with traditional traffic signal preemption rules. In London E-scooter accidents increased by 2800% in the first quarter of 2021. Therefore, it is important to include them in traffic light control.
