Traffic Management Using Sensor Technology

City of Assen is equipped with sensors located throughout the city to guide users to use the best route, to advice on using public transport system and also to book for a parking slot. The sensors can identify when schools have finished their sessions so that travellers will not end up in the traffic jam. Also, the sensors can identify the stretch of road that is undergoing routine maintenance or construction. The sensors are integrated with traffic light system which enables the traffic lights to be responsive to real time traffic demand and to provide green-wave opportunity when necessary. Using the system can make travelling more fun and less stressful besides helping in reducing the detrimental to the environment.

Check-out the short-clip of the ease of using the technology.
