Speed Cams, Au­to­matic Chal­lans To De­ter Vi­o­la­tors

NEW YORK/ MAN­HAT­TAN All mon­i­tor­ing cam­eras con­nected to traf­fic man­age­ment cen­tre, which analy­ses data from each cam­era. A pat­tern is formed and 3,000 traf­fic sig­nals ad­justed to move ve­hi­cles from the af­fected ar­eas and keep oth­ers away. At least 400 sen­sors have been in­stalled in Man­hat­tan alone. The whole sys­tem is con­trolled by a satel­lite-based real-time mon­i­tor­ing unit

LON­DON Cam­eras or de­tec­tors send in­for­ma­tion to a hi-tech hub where data crunch­ing hap­pens. Traf­fic flow is de­tected through sen­sors and sig­nal tim­ings are ad­justed to man­age queues and give buses way if they are late. This keeps traf­fic de­lay 13% lower

BEI­JING Real-time traf­fic in­for­ma­tion sys­tem with con­nected sen­sors and cam­eras feeds a cen­tralised unit that cre­ates pat­terns and con­trols traf­fic sig­nals ac­cord­ingly. Pedes­trian move­ment is sim­i­larly reg­u­lated by analysing the traf­fic vol­ume. Mo­torists alerted through VMS

SIN­GA­PORE Uses GPSen­abled taxis as probes on the road net­work to pro­vide mo­torists with in­for­ma­tion on traf­fic con­di­tions is­land-wide. Real-time in­for­ma­tion on park­ing avail­abil­ity at shop­ping malls and ma­jor shop­ping belts is pro­vided
