How do smart traffic signals work?
Traffic is highly dependent on parameters such as time, day, season, climate and unpredictable situations such as accidents, special events or road works. Without incorporating these parameters, traffic signal control can cause congestion and delays. An adaptable traffic signal system resolves these problems by continually detecting and monitoring traffic conditions in order to adjust the time signals stay open in accordance with the effective conditions of the traffic. Through high-tech controllers, monitoring cameras and vehicle counting, the smart signal systems adapt the programming of traffic signal cycles in real time. This solution activates automatically the green signal for remaining open longer in a congested area or red to retain flows when necessary as for example in the event of an accident. Through the use of cameras connected to an Operational Control Center, operators can monitor traffic in real time and intervene rapidly and appropriately, an illustration of the potential of technological tools in optimizing human actions.
What is the benefit of a smart traffic management system ?
Smart traffic management systems using intelligent stop signals improve fluidity in the traffic, contributing to a reduction in pollution and commuting time as well as improving the quality of life of the population.
