The project supports the development of systems that will be able to manage traffic on their own utilizing artificial intelligence components based on immediate assessments of traffic situations and to select a traffic signal plan based on the current situation (and not a predefined plan). Moreover, it will allow for their use not only in the separated traffic area, but also within the frame of the management of the city as a whole.

The objective of the project is to create a traffic management system utilizing multi-agent and adaptive systems with artificial intelligence elements.

Function

  • Assessing traffic situations in real time and setting up optimal signal plans for a given traffic signal device
  • Assessing traffic situations based not on a particular intersection, but on the situation throughout the entire area. This will ensure a more fluent traffic flow

Benefit

  • Traffic management not based on traffic levels but on the real number of vehicles at the given area
  • More intense utilization of the current telematics structure, cost savings related to the necessary creation of new and predefined signal plans
  • Cost savings related to the creation of new signal plans or expert systems for extraordinary events
