Improve Traffic Safety

Helping Cities Maintain Safer Roads

More than 25 percent of traffic congestion is nonrecurrent, according to the Federal Highway Administration. Instead, it is caused by traffic incidents. As a result, detecting incidents early and responding to them effectively makes for safer roads, less congestion, and smoother traffic flow. The Cisco Smart+Connected Traffic solution combines IP cameras, sensors, applications, and the Cisco Digital Network Architecture for Cities and Communities infrastructure to provide visibility of live traffic conditions for traffic management authorities in real time. The solution provides insight into urban traffic patterns so that traffic authorities can make better decisions and long-term plans.
