Traffic congestion in the USA is the cause of:

  • 56 billion pounds CO2 emissions
  • 5,5 billion of extra hours of travel time
  • 2,9 billion gallons of fuel were wasted during congested traffic hours, enough to fill the New Orleans Superdome 4 times
  • $121 billion in total delay + fuel costs (truck freight moving costs not included)
  • The amount of delay endured by the average commuter in 2012 was 38 hours
  • “Rush hours” is 6 hours of not rushing anywhere
  • Congestion is becoming a bigger problem outside of “rush hour,” with about 40 percent of the delay occurring in the mid-day and overnight hours, creating an increasingly serious problem for businesses that rely on efficient production and deliveries.

As cities grow, so does the number of vehicles, problems with traffic congestions, city organization and CO2 emissions. Budgets for infrastructure keep rising and maintaining a happy citizen with limited budgets requires sacrifices. Problems arising from heavy traffic can reduce overall productivity and even gross domestic product. Consequently the attractiveness for investment in the city is reduced, both from a business standpoint in industry and tourism development.

Existing traffic control products are expensive, do not provide information in real-time and/or are complicated in use. Users are increasingly harder to please and need a quick, clean and effective solution.


From Smart Living Projects we propose a new technology system. We provide a solution that allows to collect traffic data with the following advantages:

  • Information in real-time.
  • High Accuracy.
  • Reliability of information, which also integrates easily into existing software systems.
  • Easy of use and deployment.
  • Affordable installation and maintenance, no need to work on asphalt.
  • Maintains privacy.
  • Contributes with a wide variety of data.
  • Integration with other existing solutions such as traffic cameras.
  • Location of agents.

Meanwhile, in the traffic control office….

  • Average speed
  • Time between two points
  • Design of alternative routes
  • Information to drivers on real time
  • Alert of incident
  • Connection to traffic cameras
  • Location of nearest agents
  • Comparison to historical data
  • Prediction from historical data
  • Analysis – reaction – decision making
  • Etc…

This data can easily reflect on web platforms for operators to implement immediate solutions and also be sent to screens in real time to inform drivers of congestion, accidents, alternate routes… increasing their satisfaction and safety.
