The Pune Smart City Development Corporation (PSCDCL) is all set to commission 'smart signalling' under the Adaptive Traffic Management System (ATMS) by August this year.
As per the reports,
Wherever the system is installed, the new traffic system will work on real-time data in accordance with the traffic situation and synchronise the traffic signals at intersections.
As per Sanjay Kolte, the Chief Executive Officer of Pune Smart City, “'The first phase of ATMS will be completed soon as the installation of equipment for 95 traffic junctions is completed. The integration of the system is going on and the project will be commissioned in the next 15 days. Data collected after 15 days through an artificial intelligence system will make the ATMS give expected results.”
As soon as the installation of the equipment for 95 traffic junctions is completed, the first phase of ATMS will be finished. The system integration is ongoing, and the project will be put into operation in the following 15 days. An artificial intelligence system will use data gathered after 15 days to cause the ATMS to provide the anticipated results.
Kolte also informed that the control room for the ATMS has been made ready at the Smart City office on Sinhagad Road, adding that the project is being implemented for the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC).
The PMC will incur a cost of Rs 58 crore for the operation and maintenance of the project, which is being implemented in two phases. The project will be implemented at 125 junctions in phase one and will be extended to cover all 261 junctions across Pune in the second phase.
The major components of the ATMS include adaptive traffic controllers at junctions, traffic lights and traffic sensors, travel time devices, variable message sign boards and integration with the command control centre. The control system will have a video wall to monitor the sensors and cameras across the city.
