Pedestrians, bicycles, cars and buses are intertwined on the busy urban roads. Traffic lights at intersections affect driving safety, traffic flow, and capacity. In order to realize an effective traffic solution that not only guarantees safety but also improve traffic flow, an accurate traffic flow control system is required to manage the movement and flow of vehicles throughout the city.
The system consist of the installation of roadside traffic infrastructure, namely traffic lights, detectors and controllers, and the management of the gathered data in order to propose the adequate solutions to ease the traffic.
In the real-time traffic flow management system, vehicle movements are captured with a network of smart sensors, which are placed at strategic locations in city streets, on roads and on highways. City and road operators wirelessly collect traffic information and can visualize and analyze results to better manage traffic flow.
