Dynamic traffic light control

Traffic light management based on real-time data

Based on actual road traffic data, the traffic light of a given intersection is being monitored according to the real time picture of the traffic conditions. Thanks to the local processing of the information, the traffic light cycles are determined through the levels of congestion, the queue length of the vehicles, their actual speed and the traffic intensity.

WHY SENSEFIELDS?
  • Obtain number, presence and occupancy level information at multiple points per lane
  • Possibility of combining the information from multiple measuring points (crosses) operating as a single system
  • Generation of congestion alarms by means of relays, serial or Ethernet connections, easy to integrate in traffic lights
  • Configurable alarms, possibility to set limits based on the combination of occupancy data per lane and direction
  • Thanks to the fog computing technology, it’s possible to act over the traffic light based on the traffic conditions of all the intersection entrances

The solution gives the possibility of installing traffic measuring points at any distance from the traffic light controller without wiring and the measurement points can be easily added, modified or deleted to accommodate changes in traffic patterns.

Ecofriendly

Removable and disposable batteries and electronics.

Removable

Replacement or battery change within a few minutes.

Ready to use

Collection and analysis of traffic data from the first minute of installation. Predefined configuration “Plug & Web” solution: connect sensor and start collecting data without any further configuration.

Self-calibration of the detection thresholds

It is not affected by structures in the road so it can be used in urban tunnels. It can be installed in areas close to metro lines, railway stations.

Highly accurate

Accuracy not affected under heavy weather conditions and visual factors such as shadow and lighting. Not affected by occlusion.

Fast, simple and low-cost installation

Minimal infrastructure intervention with a minor perforation in the pavement. Minimum time of road intervention without extensive engineering work, destructive trenching or cutting required and wires required.

Low maintenance costs

Battery life up to 10 years under standard conditions. No specialised personnel or tools required.

No recalibration required

No loss of reliability with the pass of time. Recalibration not required.

Standalone solution

No router, server, PLC or electric cabinet required. Possibility of installing without a dedicated electrical connection via solar panel or partial supply from a street lamp.

Open

Direct and easy integration with Traffic Management Centres and local devices such traffic lights, traffic signals and VMS

Versatile

Sensors and batteries can be removed from the enclosure for reuse in other installations either as permanent or temporary solutions for prospecting, monitoring and auditing.

Weatherproof

Works in any climate and usage conditions thanks to the rugged enclosure that supports long time exposure to severe weather conditions
