Smart Cities: Traffic Control

Smart traffic control systems are designed to optimize the flow of traffic in a city to reduce congestion and lower travel times. To achieve this task, smart traffic control systems can utilize a combination of the internet of things, edge computing, and artificial intelligence. These systems range from the addition of new hardware to existing traffic control systems like stoplights, to data collection and processing systems that can predict areas of congestion and change traffic flow through manipulating traffic control infrastructure or directly communicating alternate routes to drivers.
