Smart traffic management gets more than vehicles moving
Cities power the world’s economy but congestion in most major cities is now proving a menace to growth and well-being and it is why smart traffic management is such a hot topic.
Take London as one example. Last year, drivers traveled at an average speed of 11 km/h and lost 227 hours to congestion. It adds up to billions in lost productivity. So how is smart traffic management set to be a game changer?
First, because the best solutions use existing infrastructure to gather real-time data and build deep learning models able to predict queue lengths. Smart infrastructure allows traffic operators to act and improve traffic flow throughout their road network.
These solutions are already at work and predictive intelligence can be used to inform drivers as well as organizations responsible for traffic flow.
Secondly, as over half of the world’s population is now urban, smart traffic management will prove a vital part in ensuring people and goods can move with less congestion and in doing so, lower emissions.
As London has ambitions to be becoming a zero-carbon city by 2050, smart traffic management will become indispensable as city planners and enterprise tackle vehicle use and traffic flow.
