Siemens Traffic Control System in Moscow : GlobalGiants.com


Moscow, February 28, 2007 -- The average speed in the Russian capital during rush hour is rarely more than 6 km/h (4 mph). In order to improve flow and safety on the city's "Third ring" motorway, Siemens installed a comprehensive traffic control system. 94 detector systems record traffic densities, speeds and vehicle data. 75 video cameras observe traffic incidents and automatically recognize traffic jams and accidents. Four weather stations measure temperature, precipitation and visibility. A 45-km (28 mi.) high-speed fiber-optic communications system transmits the data to the central control computer for analysis, which is connected in turn to the three tunnel control centers and the traffic management control center for the city of Moscow. This generates information about the traffic situation and speed management that, with the help of 250 variable message signs and information panels, helps drivers reach their destinations. |GlobalGiants.com|
