Why the mayor does not implements the most effective way of dealing with congestion?

The problem of congestion is present in all cities of the world, and there is no exception. To deal with traffic can not only unpopular methods, but also attracting highly-developed electronic intelligence.

Cars of the near future will tell the driver the optimal speed to get the green light.Cars of the near future will tell the driver the optimal speed to get the green light.

What methods of regulating the number of cars on the roads we know? I’m sure everyone immediately thought about the paid Parking, bus lanes, an artificial decrease in the number of Parking spaces in the centre and, on the contrary, their increase in the metro stations and trains. To congestion in the city centre, our government is still, fortunately, not there yet, but as the most draconian measures there is. And somehow overlooked method that makes a significant contribution and assistance to motorists. This control traffic by using electronic mind control.

In many Russian cities already use such systems. In Moscow on separate tracks functioning of ATMs, Automated traffic control, and the scale of the city has a system of “Start”. Speaking simply, it works as follows. The cameras and sensors along the streets, analyze the congestion. The results of processing data with a longer green cycle for the direction in which accumulates the greatest number of cars. Everything may happen automatically or through a single dispatch center, where the situation on the roads watching regular statements. You can make a set of presets for each time of day: morning and evening rush hour, calm days, nights with a minimum amount of transport.

Big city without traffic jams, perhaps only in North Korea. All other cities in the world are looking for new ways to rationally organize the movement and squeeze all of the resources available.Big city without traffic jams, perhaps only in North Korea.

The capabilities of automated systems can be very extensive today. It all depends on the amount of equipment used. For example, in Moscow only noticeable interference in the operation of traffic lights. In Europe and the United States of these complexes are also affected by the speed limitation at the current time. For example, on the German autobahn restriction is removed if the trunk is loose enough for this. In the dense traffic on the electronic scoreboard lit limit 130 km/h and below. Used roadside boards that inform drivers about what lies ahead (accident, roadworks, etc.), how much will have to stay on the road, what route, you can avoid a traffic jam. We have, at best, show travel time to a pair of three important points like MKAD, TTK, the Garden ring. But it can only a new scoreboard on the outbound highways. Their “colleagues” on the Moscow ring road and Third ring (mostly older design) had nothing really useful for drivers not shown.

More than a year ago, Moscow began to appear modern information Board, going to replace that useless hanging from the end of the reconstruction of the road in the 1990-ies.More than a year ago, Moscow began to appear modern information Board, going to replace that useless hanging from the end of the reconstruction of the road in the 1990-ies.

Is it possible to get a “control center” for themselves? “You can!” — meet the world’s leading automakers. And the solution they already have. This system inform the driver of traffic signals ahead. It, in particular, has announced and gradually implemented on the series cars of Audi, BMW, Ford, Jaguar Land Rover, Toyota. Call assistants in different ways, but they operate in a similar way. Radio or the Internet, they receive the data from the traffic lights. On display in front of the driver is displayed, which signal is lit now, how many seconds it will change, and what speed you need to maintain to get a “green wave”.

The car will tell the driver how many seconds left to illuminate the red or green signal at the next intersection.The car will tell the driver how many seconds left to illuminate the red or green signal at the next intersection.

Pilot projects for Audi and BMW have started in the US, Toyota in Japan, Ford and Jaguar Land Rover are going to do it in the UK. The development will preserve the nerves of drivers: constant movement is much more positive in comparison with numerous downtime on “red”. In addition, the movement will become more uniform, which will reduce the level of harmful emissions and fuel consumption.

While this is only the first step of a global system of communication of vehicles with each other and with elements of road infrastructure. Of course, at this stage, hints of electronics are always going to be effective. While the computer “understands” only the traffic light, optionally preceded by a dozen invisible cars. In this case, to smoothly roll exactly to the switching to green will not work.

So, Audi launched a pilot project on interaction of cars and traffic lights in Las Vegas. Later useful function will begin to expand the geography of its application.So, Audi launched a pilot project on interaction of cars and traffic lights in Las Vegas.

But the work goes on, and a few years of exchanging messages between vehicles, traffic lights, weather stations, road services, etc. will rise to unprecedented volumes. The benefits are the same, only continually grown in volume. Will be pleased and drivers, and environmentalists. Smooth acceleration and braking will become the norm, the cars will know in advance what lies ahead and prepare for it. The city dispatch centers, which receives information today will become unnecessary: members of the movement and supports their hardware will understand among themselves. Will complete the idyllic picture of a fully independent autopilot. So in five years or seven motorists advanced countries will begin to enjoy the benefits of progress. That’s just to call yourself a driver will already be awkward. And the traffic control person will be excommunicated. What will remain to us?
