Solutions for Reduced Emissions
Miovision technology offers insights that improve overall mobility in your city, reducing vehicle congestion and user delays on city roadways. The results are better fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions.
Travel delays due to traffic congestion caused drivers to waste more than 3 billion gallons of fuel and kept travelers stuck in their cars for nearly 7 billion extra hours – 42 hours per rush-hour commuter. With Miovision insights, you can improve overall mobility in your city, reduce vehicle congestion and user delays on city roadways, and lower CO2 emissions – while improving fuel economy for drivers.
Urban populations are growing, but most city infrastructure is already established. Accommodating increased congestion isn’t always as easy as building a road or diverting traffic. And you can’t just pick up a set of train tracks or move a river. Many cities were planned and built for much smaller populations – and that makes it tough to revamp for the changing needs of your city.
Growth and change can happen suddenly and quickly, but public funds aren’t always available when new and better traffic technology hits the market. It can be frustrating to know how to fix congestion issues but not have the budget to do it.
Future-Proofing Is Difficult
The goal is to prevent traffic congestion before it happens. To do it, you need to get ahead of trends, keep up with the latest technology, and anticipate what your city will need in the future. You need to choose a traffic solution that checks all the boxes today and will adapt to your city tomorrow.
Lack of Support
Keeping traffic flowing efficiently is important for both convenience and safety. The more congestion, the more risks that are introduced on busy roadways. But if a vendor isn’t responding quickly enough to address a traffic technology issue, you may need to send your team out into a potentially dangerous situation.
Elements of a Safer Street System
Miovision’s Automated Traffic Signal Performance Measures (ATSPMs) can be the key to reducing emissions in your city and hitting your green goals. High-resolution data from signalized intersections is extracted and analyzed to identify problems and provide solutions to traffic network issues. Choose Miovision for the insights, controls, and remote management features you need in a smart traffic system.
- Receive automatic alerts when issues arise, and assign them to the right people
- Address alerts proactively before citizen complaints occur
- Address alerts such as “Signal in Flash” and “Power Loss” quickly to return the signal to a safe and efficient state as soon as possible.
- Address detector alert issues to maximize efficiency at the intersection and to ensure the signal timing is implemented as designed.
- “See” the intersection with detection that’s sharp and accurate
- Get accurate multi-modal counts at the intersection
- Understand the intersection user profile and how users are moving through the intersection
- Re-examine timing plans and time of day plans based on updated turning movements counts
- Gain insight into whether a policy change, a new program or an incentive has been effective.
- Check in with the Intersection Health tool to get a better understanding of which intersections and which movements are operating the most inefficiently and causing congestion and increasing emissions.
- Get monthly alerts through the Intersection Health tool updating you on the quality of progression along coordinated corridors
- Get a detailed understanding of how progression is working using the Time Space Diagram and Purdue Coordination Diagram
- Make a change in the field and check back in with ATSPMs and the Report Card tool to see if the change was effective
- Prove the value of your investment by showing that the changes you made significantly reduced emissions
“We started with the goal of improving how we monitor our traffic signals, and now we’re working with Miovision to explore how to improve safety for pedestrians and help first responders get to emergencies more quickly.”
