Smart Technologies For Traffic Management

Smart technologies are increasingly being used to manage traffic in cities around the world. These solutions save billions of dollars in infrastructure costs, while improving safety and reliability.

Smart technologies can help reduce traffic congestion by utilizing the latest Internet of Things technology to optimize traffic flow. These systems integrate hardware, software, and cloud technology in order to dynamically change traffic lights, on-ramp meters for freeways, bus rapid transit lanes and highway message boards.

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 drivers of pedestrians and other road users, allow emergency vehicles priority access and support lane changes 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 management can also improve air quality, by reducing emissions and energy consumption from idling cars while keeping them 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.

Connectivity is key to ensuring that all this information can reach its intended location. It must be able to provide high bandwidth, ultra-low latencies and 100% reliability in order to support the large amounts of data required for traffic management solutions.
