Electronic Displays to Tell Drivers about Traffic Jams
traffic jam in Moscow

From October 5 Moscow auto drivers will be informed about traffic jams on the roads and about available parking places in the nearest areas on electronic displays. First the innovation will appear in the six Moscow streets, another 46 displays will be set up all over the capital by the end of the month.

The electronic display is a part of intellectual transport system (ITS). It is created for optimizing traffic streams in Moscow and reducing the amount of traffic jams.

Information about traffic will be analyzed by the Integrated City Dispatching Center on Managing Passenger Transport. The Center will get data about traffic situation from GLONASS/GPS navigators installed in public transport. Now only 542 buses are equipped with such navigators. But by 2012 all public transport is planned to be equipped with them.

Having got the traffic information from the GLONASS/GPS devices, the Center will analyze it and adjust the work of traffic lights and traffic on reversible lanes to the road situation.
