Adaptive traffic control analytics via CCTV cameras are being used for seamless integration of existing traffic lights to reduce traffic waiting time in Cyberjaya, Malaysia.
With the new Smart Traffic Analytics and Recognition System, the waiting time for the traffic light along Persiaran Multimedia, Cyberjaya has been reduced by 65 percent to between 8-11 minutes from about 32 minutes previously to go from one end to the other during peak hours. The traffic light system along Persiaran Multimedia, a stretch of about 3.5km consists of eight intersection of traffic lights.
Using closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras to allow real-time analysis of traffic demands at each intersection via video analytics detection approach, system dynamically adjusts the duration of green time according to the analytics.
The implementation includes a remote management system which allows for remote monitoring at its Traffic Management Command Centre, located at Cyberview's Colnnov8, a collaborative centre for smart city and IoT solutions.
"This [project] is in line with Cyberview's role as a tech hub enabler that leads the transformation of Cyberjaya into a smart city and a living lab that breathes and thrives on innovation," said Dato' Faris Yahaya, managing director of Cyberview, which was behind Cyberjaya's recent LoRA network rollout, first announced the traffic light project towards the end of 2015.
"As a Living Lab for smart city solutions, we look into incorporating technology into every facet of the township through collaboration with our many partners; from improving the fundamentals by boosting the city's loT readiness, piloting smart solutions, to improving infrastructure and city services and offering business and marketing support for great ideas," said Faris.
He said for this latest development, Cyberview collaborated with Telekom Malaysia's subsidiary VADS Lyfe, which locally developed the Internet of Things (IoT) based system in July of the year.
Faris said the project directly addresses traffic congestions, achieving reduced travel and waiting times. In addition, the solution should reduce fuel consumption, air pollution, and carbon emissions from vehicles.
