The technology will leverage real-time data to help the city improve safety, lower costs, and improve traffic flow. Ericsson and the city of Dallas have teamed up to connect the city’s traffic system aiming to improve safety, monitoring, management, maintenance, and traffic flow. The city is calling it the Advanced Traffic Management System, which will be the first U.S. system that uses Ericsson’s Connected Urban Transportation solution to aggregate and analyze real-time data from traffic sensors and cameras in order to control traffic lights, school flashers, and signage. The $9.8 million solution is expected to allow city officials to get instant information on malfunctioning intersections, assist with traffic issues, and ultimately improve traffic flow while lowering the cost of maintenance to the city.
