In Krasnoyarsk introducing an automated system of traffic control

Today, the traffic situation of Krasnoyarsk is entirely in the hands of the operator — it is he who decides where and how to redirect flows in the event satarovich situations. At the moment the single control 95 connected road sections and more than 250 traffic signals.

In manual mode in 2017 at peak times, the level of traffic has been reduced from 9 to 6 points. Despite the fact that the growth of transport only in the past year amounted to 12 thousand cars, it is a column length of 60 kilometers. And over time, the number of cars will only increase, so the second phase of the project is to share traffic control with artificial intelligence.

But while automation is workable only 10% of the information-gathering system needs a special eye out around the city, “Vesti Krasnoyarsk.” Now in Krasnoyarsk installed 70 of detectors for traffic monitoring. Just for full operation of the system must be 700 such facilities, they plan to install before the end of the year.

Note that the automated system is fully developed by the Krasnoyarsk specialists and 10 times cheaper than analogues. Testing artificial intelligence on certain road sections will begin in February and the experiment will last for one month. And at the end of the year under the control of the system shall be all roads of the regional center.
