Dresden University Scientists to Advance Sensor Mediated Traffic Flow Control System

The researchers at the Dresden University of Technology are developing a sensor mediated technology for signaling the traffic according to the flow of the traffic, replacing the estimated traffic signaling lights.

The system will be capable of monitoring the entire vehicles that are passing through and reaching the junctions. By exploiting this data and combining various algorithms, the sensor system will transmit the exact traffic flow information to other traffic signals thereby restricting or extending the lighting time to permit the vehicles to cross the junction in a ‘green wave’.

This method will contribute coordination within the nearby junction systems for signaling the traffic as per the inflow of the vehicles. The investigators stated in a Santa Fe Institute paper that the innovative sensor mediated approach reduces congestion, expenditure, smoke expulsions and road rage.

Gábor Orosz, mechanical engineer at the Ann Arbor-based Michigan University commented that such a sensor mediated approach for the traffic flow control is highly harmonizing and responsive.
