Smart Technologies for Traffic

Cities are shifting to smart technology for traffic to reduce energy waste and increase road safety as traffic congestion in urban areas is becoming a growing issue. This helps both drivers and passengers save time, lowers emissions, and reduces traffic jams.

The technology behind this is based upon two key components: Hardware and software. The former provides the executing component, while it is used as the command and control center. Both are enhanced by processing and sensing technologies, including ANPR (automotive license plate recognition) which records data about vehicles’ movements and can detect traffic signs.

Depending on the method utilized, data can be processed the benefits of using modern traffic technologies by data room on-device by smart traffic lights, or sent to cloud. The latter is more sophisticated modeling and predictive analysis that can prevent congestion in traffic and align public transport schedules. This way, they can reduce average travel times by 25%, cut time to signal by 40%, and reduce emissions by 20 percent according to Carnegie Mellon University.

A well-designed traffic light system is not only able to reduce the time taken by traffic signals, can also improve the flow of pedestrians and of micromobility vehicles like ebikes or e-scooters. This is due to the fact that they’re often not able to adhere to traditional traffic signal preemption rules. In London the e-scooter accident rate increased by 2800% in the first quarter of 2021. It is therefore important to include them in traffic light controls.
