Phoenix Pilot Program to Help Cut Delays, Boost Safety
August 26, 2020
A pilot program along a congested traffic area in Phoenix is using cameras and artificial intelligence in an effort to improve safety, decrease travel times, and reduce delays, ABC15 Arizona has reported. New cameras and wireless technology have been installed on five intersections along Glendale Avenue, between Central Avenue and State Route 51.
The technology, developed by the Palo Alto-based company, NoTraffic, will provide a “total awareness of the intersection,” according to company spokesman Kris Milster. Milster added that the system can detect and differentiate between cars, trucks, pedestrians, and bicycles and adjust the traffic signals to accommodate them. The system can also detect a potential crash, alert police and first responders, and notify drivers in vehicles equipped with wireless receivers of a potential hazard ahead.
The system reduced traffic delay time in another city by up to 40 percent, according to NoTraffic.
Phoenix management and operations engineer Simon Ramos said the technology will not be engaged for several weeks, which will allow the system to learn the current traffic patterns. Once it is engaged, he expects drivers will be seeing green lights more frequently.
