Many cities are currently experiencing tremendous population growth and this trend is projected to continue well into the short-term future. As a result, traffic management is quickly becoming a major concern for smart cities.
A team from the Polytechnic University of Catalunya (UPC) has developed In4Mo. This system is not only capable of detecting the density of traffic and vehicle speed but can also make helpful predictions about traffic patterns.
During simulations, the In4Mo system projected traffic patterns that were later actually observed, proving that the system’s predictions were accurate. The developers are confident that the system could deliver real-time information with a more powerful technological platform.
