Bhubaneswar Smart City Limited installed the much-awaited Adaptive Traffic Signal

Bhubaneswar:21/3/18: Bhubaneswar Smart City Limited (BSCL) installed the much-awaited Adaptive Traffic Signal Control (ATSC) solution at various traffic squares across the city.

The ATSC solution was installed at 50 junctions with an aim to provide traffic and transit management services to the traffic police to improve traffic congestion and delays in the smart city.

The system with some important features, which were implemented for the first time in the city, will be integrated in the centralised command and control centre in future.

With installation of the ATSC system, it will improve travel time reliability by progressively moving vehicles through intersections, reduce traffic congestion by creating smoother flow across intersections, distribution of green phase time equitably for all approaches, faster response to traffic conditions and emergencies, said a press release.

The Adaptive Traffic Signal Control solution not only collects real time traffic data but also optimizes the signal phases in real time to reduce delays.

The adaptive signals will support predicting traffic volumes and adjust signal timings to match these volumes, said the release.

The specially designed uniform traffic poles with signals mounted on horizontal cantilevers enhances visibility of signals from long distance. The directional signage put atop traffic poles provides improved visibility.
