Controlling traffic on the road isn’t easy, particularly in densely populated cities. The overcrowding causes delays, accidents and environmental degradation. Smart technology can assist motorists and pedestrians get to where they need to go efficiently and safely.

IoT technology allows for the collection of data that can enhance urban mobility, transportation systems and parking spaces. These data can be used as a basis for the decisions to reduce traffic, improving safety efficiency, as well as increasing the sustainability of economics.

If a traffic light detects that more vehicles are coming from one direction than the other, it will automatically adjust its timing to accommodate these drivers. This saves motorists money and time, as well as reducing the carbon emissions from idle vehicles. Smart traffic lights can be programmed to alter their timings in real-time in response to road conditions, like construction zones or traffic jams. This can cut down travel time for drivers by as much as 10% and drastically decrease delays in traffic.

These technologies can aid city planners to avoid costly infrastructure improvements, as well as overcrowding. They also can identify structural issues like bridges that are unsafe or under construction. Also, they can aid in helping emergency vehicles to get on the roads speedily. Every minute that an ambulance or firetruck delays its route to a traffic accident could significantly reduce the likelihood of survival for victims.

For these and other smart technologies to work efficiently, they require a reliable, scalable, and secure network infrastructure. Spectrum Enterprise offers the connectivity required to power IoT sensors in a smart traffic management systems and also the interfaces that deliver actionable insights.
