As congestion in the city becomes a major challenge cities are turning to smart technology for traffic to improve road safety and decrease wasted energy. This assists in reducing time for both passengers and drivers as well as reduce emissions and reduce traffic jams.

The technology behind it is built on both software and hardware. The first provides the subcomponent that executes, while it is used as the command and control center. Both are complemented with advanced technology for sensing and processing, such as ANPR (automotive plate recognition), which captures data about vehicles’ movements and can detect road signs.

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

A well-designed traffic light system is not only able to reduce the time it takes to get traffic signals and improving pedestrian flow and the flow of micromobility vehicles such as e-bikes or e-scooters. They’re not able to adhere to the traditional traffic signal preemption laws. In London, for example the number of crashes involving e-scooters increased by 2800% in the first half of 2021, and therefore it is vital to consider them when determining traffic light control.
