Article via Business Wire – KITCHENER, Ontario–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Miovision, a global leader in traffic systems technology, today launched MyCitySmarts.com, a free survey and guide to help cities improve the flow of traffic.
Every driver knows the frustration of sitting in traffic and getting stuck at poorly timed stoplights that turn red too quickly to let enough cars through while no cross-traffic is even waiting. The evolution of smart traffic technology is helping a growing number of cities address traffic congestion. Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) technologies are giving cities more tools to collect better data, improve monitoring and in some cases automate freeway management, traffic signal optimization, incident and event management and failure responses.
“While a lot of cities are starting to investigate smart traffic technology, many simply don’t know where to start,” said Dave Bullock, managing director of ITS at Miovision. “It can be a daunting task. The MyCitySmarts survey will help them identify their challenges and how to overcome them. By comparing responses different stakeholders within the city, it can help ensure that teams are on the same page when it comes to setting priorities and implementing changes.”
