Adaptive Traffic Control Systems (ATCS)
Detection of real-time traffic conditions is a critical input for efficient operations. The value of reduced economic productivity due to time lost in traffic congestions, wastage of fuel, and the effect of pollution is staggering. As a result, the demand for better traffic management solutions is more significant than ever before. Adaptive Traffic Control System (ATCS) is a solution that automatically adapts the timings of traffic lights based on real-time traffic conditions to optimize the flow of traffic.
EFKON’s Adaptive Traffic Control System (ATCS) enables traffic signals to work in adaptive (fully synchronized), vehicle actuated (local optimization), and fixed timing modes to maximize vehicular throughput and reduce congestion.
How the ATCS system works?
ATCS makes use of cameras and sensors for monitoring the traffic. These sensors collect data, which are evaluated to improve signal timings at a particular junction. The sensing network can adapt to the changing traffic density patterns and provide necessary signals to the traffic controller or the Command Center on a real-time basis. It allows signals to interact with each other and make adjustments to the signal timings to keep traffic flow congestion free.
