24 июня 2009 22:56

In September the program of traffic regulation through the automated system of traffic management will start realizing in Ekaterinburg. This is the task that the Head of Ekaterinburg Arkady Chernetsky addressed to the municipal board «Traffic Establishment Centre» (MB «TEC»), specifically created to improve the traffic situation in the capital of the Urals.

Director of MB «TEC» Evgeny Seletkov reported to the mayor, that to date the project of automatic traffic control is ready for 135 intersections. This process will be implemented on a system developed by the company «Elsag Datamat» from Genoa. Italian specialists proposed a scheme, based on the use of mounted into the pavement inductive sensors. They read information about traffic intensity and transmit it into a specially equipped center of traffic control, which automatically ensures the optimum operating of traffic lights at intersections. This unique scheme has proved itself well in many large cities around the world, including Rome and Milan.

According to experts, through flexible scheduling and rapid response to road conditions, it allows to increase the capacity of intersections and major transport nodes to 30%. In the near future Ekaterinburg citizens will also be able to assess the effectiveness of the Italian system of traffic control.

In mid-July, the Administration of Ekaterinburg will hold a competition among the enterprises that can produce all the elements of a set of traffic lights automatic control. After summing up the competition, the work on installing the system sensors at intersections will immediately begin. The Head of Ekaterinburg Arkady Chernetsky committed the professionals of the municipal «TEC» by the 1st of September to introduce a new scheme of traffic passes at 10 most problematic intersections of road networks. Until the end of 2009 the number of intersections equipped with artificial intelligence will be increased to 30. According to preliminary information, the list of such points will include the road crossings at the entrance to the city from Tyumen tract, in the streets of Vostochnaya, Lunacharsky, Karl Liebknecht, Malyshev and some others.

The control post of automated traffic light management system is to be located at the MB «TEC». That is the point which will get all the information about vehicle congestions, followed by the interaction, further led by the intelligent computer system. During the winter months, the city authorities plan to carry out its run, to finalize all the technical issues arising and to analyze the results.

In the case of a successful launch, coverage implemented by the Italian scheme of traffic control complex can be extended for another 100 intersections. It is anticipated that the full effect of the project will start acting in 2010.
