Recent Traffic Trends Signal the Need for New Technology

Cities around the world are experiencing increasingly complex traffic predicaments. Roads are rife with congestion, and alternate routes are becoming busier due to traffic optimization apps like Waze and an influx of ridesharing services. Unfortunately, the gridlock crisis has resulted in an unprecedented number of casualties. According to the World Health Organization, 1.25 million people die a year in traffic accidents, and 20 to 50 million are injured. The excess fumes from vehicles also lead to record rates of respiratory illnesses such as asthma and chronic bronchitis.

With chaotic traffic systems on the rise, cities have begun to adopt new technologies and adequate monitoring systems to protect their citizens. Pelco's traffic management solutions empower cities to move people and vehicles more quickly and safely than ever before. Features of Pelco's Intersection, Roadway and Bridge/Tunnel Management solutions include traffic anomaly alerts for pedestrian detection, traffic congestion, traffic gridlock, wrong way driving, and smoke detection. Utilizing the Optera panoramic IP camera, operators can broadcast four feeds simultaneously, presenting the widest field-of-view at one time.

Pelco works diligently with traffic officials to ensure that cities' needs are met with a comprehensive traffic management solution that protects both drivers and pedestrians. Pelco's smart technology helps to create more efficient roads with happier and safer commuters.
