Lysreguleringer can have widely different temperaments. While some give you plenty of time to pass, reached the green light in other places only with an extra push on the accelerator. And in each tick, you may as well give up to reach over the.
It can sometimes be difficult to figure out the logic behind light regulation, and a new attempt must now test whether it can be done better with 'big data'.
More specifically, in the project The Regional Datahub collect the GPS data from the cars at Vallensbæk Torvevej and thereby try to make better flow of traffic.
It writes Automobile Magazine.
a total Of 20 municipalities participating in The Regional Datahub, which the organization Gate 21 is behind. The attempt at Vallensbæk Torvevej is just one of the chapters in the series of tests which the project is working on.
The overall goal is to use the increasing amount of data that we produce with our smartphones, cars and computers, to solve some of the challenges, as deltagerkommunerne contend with.
In Vallensbæk is hoped that the new type of traffic can create less queues and thus also more pollution along the way.
however, It is not, because you have set lysreguleringerne in the blind. Usually you use physical gauges to keep an eye on the traffic in every intersection, but in the mayor's office in Vallensbæk hope Henrik Rasmussen (C), to the new 'big data'solution can make it better.
- I am happy to Vallensbæk Municipality, in cooperation with the Gate 21 utilizes the latest technology to create a better flow of traffic, so it can make a positive difference in our citizens ' everyday lives, says the mayor in a press release.
The new method of measurement has the disadvantage that, unlike the physical trafiktællere can't keep an eye on all the cars on the road. Some are quite simple for the old, points out Dennis Bjørn-Pedersen from the company Technolution, who developed the system.
- With the GPS data, we get only the data from the cars that support it. Therefore, you will not be able to use it for the exact vehicle-counting machines. But you will get enough information to be able to control the traffic in an intelligent and appropriate way, he says in the press release.
the Attempt at Vallensbæk Torvevej will run over the coming weeks.
