The Smart Intersection Management System (Smart Intersection) is a transport application that allows the dynamic optimization of intersection times based on an analysis of the vehicle density data received from signaled intersections, thus supporting the most effective use of road network capacity. The Smart Intersection Management System (Smart Intersection) application can work locally at an intersection, or regionally between consecutive intersections, or in a coordinated manner between all intersections.
The Smart Intersection Management System application comprises three main components. The data collection module, the first component, collects data on the numbers and classification of vehicles at all intersections, based on both image and sensor data. This data is then transferred to the intersection control and management module, the second component in the system. The intersection control and management module is integrated with the intersection control devices located on the inter- and intra-city roads, and allows the management of the intersection over optimum periods, calculated based on the results of the analysis of the data collected. The central intersection management software, the third component of the system, operates at the city’s traffic control center, ensuring that all signaled intersections are in coordination with each other. Aside from the central intersection management capability, the intersection management software module offers various scenario-based capabilities, such as variable messaging systems management, incident management, public transport prioritization and providing priority of way.
The Smart Intersection Management System (Smart Intersection) minimizes the waiting times of vehicles at intersections, the toxic gas emissions and noise pollution, and ensures savings in fuel consumption.
