Traffic Incident Management

Our innovative IoT cloud-based traffic management solution delivers the ability to monitor, report on and control traffic flow while reducing commuting time for citizens, and response times for traffic departments and municipalities.

Our innovative IoT cloud-based traffic management solution delivers the ability to monitor, report on and control traffic flow while reducing commuting time for citizens, and response times for traffic departments and municipalities. We identify, monitor, analyze and visualize relevant safety, security and operational risks, and provide real-time decision support to enable effective and safe daily operations and superior handling of emergencies, incidents and crises.

Commuting and traffic are key issues for cities looking to attract investment, retain skilled workers and generate wealth. Congestion in the European Union (EU) in and around urban areas costs nearly €100 billion, or 1% of EU GDP, annually¹. What’s more, 25 percent of traffic congestion is nonrecurring; it is caused by traffic incidents².

By improving traffic flow, reducing congestion and making roads safer, cities can lower costs and improve their livability.

The AGT-Cisco® Traffic Incident Management Solution is part of the broader Cisco Smart+Connected™ City Traffic Solution. It addresses the two most important traffic challenges facing cities today: road safety and congestion. It helps traffic departments accurately detect more incidents, early on, before they become more serious, and enables quicker response by monitoring and analyzing traffic flow data. The solution stands out in the market with two important innovations: the fusing of data from multiple sources to identify real incidents and reduce false alarms, and the integration of multiple applications into a single comprehensive solution.
