Vivacity are delighted to win the ITS (UK) – Intelligent Transport Systems Award for Innovative Use of Technology with partners Transport for Greater Manchester and Immense for the Smart Junctions project!

This initiative explores how machine learning can be used to improve traffic signal control and optimise the road network. This ground-breaking new system will give transport authorities unprecedented ability to efficiently implement new strategies including:

– Promoting active travel by prioritising cyclists and pedestrians, thereby improving journey quality and safety

– Prioritising air quality by reducing the amount of breaking, accelerating, and idling of high-emissions vehicles.

Congratulations to all the other awards nominees and winners too!
