Smart Technologies for Traffic

Cities are using smart traffic technology to cut down on energy consumption and improve road safety as urban traffic congestion is becoming more frequent. This can help to cut down on time for drivers and passengers and reduces emissions. It also helps reduce traffic congestion.

The technology behind it is based on hardware and software. The former is the executing subcomponent, and the latter is the command and control center. Both are complemented by the latest sensors and processing techniques which include ANPR (automotive license plate recognition) that records information about vehicle movements and can detect traffic signs.

Depending on the method used, data can be processed on device using smart traffic lights or transferred to cloud. This is a way to perform more sophisticated analysis and modeling to reduce traffic congestion and harmonize schedules of public transport. This way, they can reduce the average travel time by 25%, cut signal wait times by 40%, and decrease emissions by 20 percent, according to Carnegie Mellon University.

A well-designed traffic light system as well as reducing the time taken by traffic signals it can also improve the flow of pedestrians and of micromobility vehicles such as e-bikes or e-scooters. They’re not able to conform to traditional traffic law regarding preemption of signals. In London, e-scooter accidents increased by 2,800% over the first quarter of 2021. Therefore, it is important to include them in traffic light control.
