Intelligent Traffic Systems Can Help Reduce Congestion & Pollution, Here’s How

How does traffic impact the quality of life?

  • Congestion increases the time it takes to get from A to B
  • A great part of this time is spent waiting at intersections and in congestion
  • Vehicles need to start and stop frequently, which is fuel-intensive
  • Stopping, idling and starting produce higher fine particulate matter emissions which, under some meteorological conditions, stay close to the ground and create air pollution. An idling car can produce 271.4 grams of CO2 every five minutes.

Smart solutions for better traffic in urban areas

  • Drivers can reduce their fuel expenditure connected to frequent stopping, idling and starting again.
  • The decrease in fine particulate matter emissions connected to less idling cars (especially in central parts of the city) will increase the air quality and improve citizens’ health status.
  • Daily traffic-related stress will decrease, thus adding up to the health effects of the shift.
  • Installing call buttons for pedestrians can significantly increase the time of the green signal for vehicles which also adds up to the time saved by the smart system.
  • Public transit can operate more efficiently: increased on-time performance can help people decide to use it more frequently instead of their own vehicles.
