China has selected Telvent's SmartMobility technology for three of its cities Nanning, Fushun and Erdos to optimise urban mobility and upgrade and centralise real-time traffic infrastructure management and control systems.
SmartMobility technology uses the existing road infrastructures to assist local authorities in accessing real-time traffic information, in a bid to make the most of their road infrastructure.
The technology is also expected to reduce traffic delays in these cities by more than 35% and bring down travel time within by almost 15%.
Telvent chairman and CEO Ignacio González said: "We are proud to continue playing an active role in China, helping this country to develop smarter cities that are committed to more efficient infrastructure and mobility management to thereby offer their citizens a safer, more sustainable and liveable environment."
The SmartMobility technology and centralised traffic management will also help the traffic management operators to react timely and efficiently in case of urgency.
Telvent will also implement a number of other systems, such as red-light violation control systems, video surveillance and speed measurement systems, to monitor and control the traffic situation and reduce accident rates in the cities.
Drivers can benefit from the real-time traffic information and decide on alternative routes to avoid traffic congestion.
