Control and traffic management in urban and intercity roads is a challenge for cities, towns and infrastructure managers in general. A much more efficient use of the capacity of the roads, a better harmonization of traffic flows, and an outright reduction of greenhouse gas emissions is required.
Furthermore, it is fundamental to give a much higher priority to public transportation (subway, bus, train, etc.) against the private media, while increasing levels of safety for pedestrians.
The consequences of any minimum congestion at the flow of traffic in intercity roads create big problems with the logical increase in emissions, fuel consumption and discomfort of drivers. In fact, the economic cost associated with jams in this type of road is daunting, especially in large cities. None of this is, however, comparable to the damage that these jams represent in terms of accidents, especially serious in secondary roads.
Special mention deserves the requirements of control and traffic signaling in tunnels. A communication path inside a tunnel presents special challenges for infrastructure managers, as they are often narrow and prevent cross maneuvers, have a height limitation, lack of external lighting and mobile communications coverage may not be available.
An essential element to face these challenges is the availability of driver information systems that alert them to dangerous situations. Those information systems facilitate the traffic regulation in all sorts of ways, especially in places like tunnels or tolls.
