Solutions for Reduced Congestion

Access the insights you need to improve overall mobility in your city, reducing congestion and delays on roadways.

Urbanization, combined with the overall growth of the world’s population, could add another 2.5 billion people to urban populations by 2050. How will cities manage this growth and the congestion that comes with it?

Challenges with reducing congestion

  • Well-Established Infrastructure

    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.

    Budget Constraints

    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.

  • Protect your investment and address future needs with technology that works with existing controllers
Signal communications
  • Access data collected from the intersection securely in the cloud
  • Protect your investment and address future needs with technology that works with existing controllers
  • Receive automatic alerts when issues arise and avoid citizen complaints
  • 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” every vehicle, pedestrian and cyclist to ensure demand is being serviced and timing plans are being used effectively.
  • Get accurate 24/7 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
  • 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.” Mark de la Vergne, Chief of Mobility Innovation, Detroit
