In Valencia, the municipality controls the traffic flows in the city by constantly monitoring over 1,000 crossing points and more than 100 information panels through its Traffic Control Centre. An important element of this technology system is the strategic level of interaction with citizens, which goes well beyond parking and traffic announcements. The mobility solution integrates data from critical points in the city, such as tunnels and car parksThis integrated data can identify a problem situation and propose a solution for that specific issue.’ In the case of the environment, cities can apply sound or pollution parameters to the system, which then suggests the best option for specific environmental issues monitored, whether it be via increased green traffic lights to divert the traffic or via
information panels advising citizens to turn off their engines.
