The City of Dallas has selected Ericsson to install and host an Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS) based on Ericsson’s Connected Urban Transport solution.
The implementation began at the end of 2017 and the system will be fully operational by 2020. The city’s vision for the traffic system is an intuitive and easy-to-use interface that automates and facilitates system monitoring, management, maintenance, and performance monitoring across departments, as well as between cities and counties.
The Connected Urban Transport solution will give the City of Dallas and adjacent cities the ability to aggregate and analyze diverse, real-time data from traffic sensors and cameras to dynamically control traffic lights, school flashers and message signs.
The solution will allow the City of Dallas to expand its knowledge about traffic issues and assist with operational decision-making to improve traffic flow. It also provides access to Key performance indicators (KPI’s), to monitor and track the city’s goals and suppliers’ performance – for performance and contract management.
