Beating traffic jams with novel junction control supported by ESA
Italian start-up company Nabla Quadro’s Light Intersection System automatically adjusts the traffic light sequence at crossings based on the traffic to optimise the vehicle flow.
Sensors, here under installation, embedded in the road monitor the cars passing in each lane. The sensors inform the controller unit wirelessly in real time about the traffic so it can sequence the lights to minimise queues.
Nabla Quadro developed its patented road traffic monitoring system with the support of ESA Technology Transfer Programme’s Business Incubation Centre Lazio.
The first system was set up in Genoa, Italy in October 2012 and is now under evaluation with the Genoa municipality.
