NoTraffic – IoT Mobility Traffic Platform
NoTraffic is all about traffic. Like the Watchmile system, they use video analytics to anonymously track pedestrians, cars, busses, trucks, bikes, emergency vehicles and any other traffic. They then use this information to optimize traffic flow. Pedestrians get priority so a light will stay red longer to allow a slower pedestrian to cross. Emergency vehicles will get green lights. Plug-n-play IoT cameras are installed at eye level at each entrance to the intersection to get the traffic data. Of course, you must decide if you want to let an IOT system solve the trolley problem. The system also supports vehicles with automobile-to-anything (A2X) technology. A2X wirelessly connects your car to traffic controls, monitors, and other ACARS as you travel. The anonymized data can then be fed to AI algorithms to control traffic or to observe what is happening. Streets can be closed, and traffic rerouted around construction. All the data is logged so patterns can be identified, and strategies improved.
