Smart Cities World – Road travel

IoT platform for urban mobility, NoTraffic, has announced its expansion into Canada and a first deployment in Vancouver to improve road coordination, safety and traffic equity.

The NoTraffic platform leverages computer vision, cloud computing, V2X connectivity, and AI technologies, connecting intersections to the grid, to improve safety and sustainability while reducing congestion.

Vancouver deployment

Teaming-up with Rogers Communications, and working alongside the University of British Columbia (UBC), the deployment in Vancouver was across multiple locations (intersections and roundabouts).

“With its history of embracing innovation, Canada is a priority market for NoTraffic and the ideal location for the next step of our expansion,” said Tal Kreisler, co-founder and CEO of NoTraffic.

“We are so excited to practically showcase the benefits of our system and the improved quality of life it can provide to citizens and communities alike.”

“It is an unprecedented change that will, ultimately, make the world a better place to live thanks to reduced CO2 emissions, increased safety, improved traffic efficiency, and the enablement of advanced mobility services.”

The City of Vancouver has pledged to reduce its carbon footprint by 50 per cent by 2030, while aiming to have two thirds of trips by active transportation and transit.

The City reports collaborating with the private sector and harnessing innovation are pivotal to its efforts. According to NoTraffic, its platform reinvents how cities manage their urban transportation networks, empowering city officials and traffic engineers to improve sustainability and traffic efficiency.
