IoT-based Traffic Management

Growing populations comes with increasing vehicles on the road and leads to a greater traffic jams, longer commutes, and an even faster processing need for timely traffic data. As a result, traffic management has become a big challenges from large cities to small communities all over the world. It turns out that traffic control agencies need to update information from remote locations and take action accordingly in no time.

The Ursalink cellular routers are ideal for traffic monitoring and control. Information is collected from roadside sensors, traffic controllers and IP cameras. The traffic data and video stream are sent securely to Traffic Control Center (TCC) systems such as Intelight and Eberle Design via Ursalink routers over high-speed 4G LTE links.

Information collected from sensors is analyzed along with rush-hour traffic patterns and any nearby traffic accidents. The results of this data analysis is used to automatically adjust traffic lights and optimize the traffic flow. Police cars, fire engines, ambulances and buses are connected with traffic control systems in order to get priority over other vehicles.
