Atos traffic management solution
Traffic congestions remains one of the biggest problems facing cities today. But today’s smart technology can ease this pain by easing gridlock — intelligent syncing of traffic signals can prevents backups, real-time navigation can alert drivers to accidents, construction, and congestion and help them choose the fastest route. Smart parking apps are available to help point drivers directly to available spots. Cites are now able to deliver real-time information about routes and arrival times on digital signage or via mobile apps, which enables riders to make travel adjustments on the fly, avoiding long delays. See how Atos can help your city manage these challenges.
