Data driven decisions for smarter traffic management

To reach a climate-positive Stockholm by 2040 we need to make transport smarter, more robust, and more sustainable. If we could plan the transportation system in a data-driven way, that would lead to much more attractive public transportation, fewer congestions, and a more sustainable city.

Here real-time data is collected and analyzed through cutting-edge technologies like AI, Edge, Lidar and radar. This provides a better understanding of traffic flows, interlinkages between systems and aims to dynamically adjust traffic lights and speed limits to help ease congestion and reduce emission.
