Osprey, our urban traffic management and control system, uses multiple data sources such as automated vehicle location, congestion detectors, CCTV and environmental and pollution monitoring to give traffic managers a single interface providing a real-time view of how their road networks are being used.
With a comprehensive picture of traffic conditions, road network managers are able to take timely and effective action to combat congestion and manage incidents. Linking environmental data allows pollution levels to influence traffic management decisions, while harnessing weather data allows for pre-emptive, targeted interventions to improve safety.
On average UK motorists spend 30 hours each year stuck in traffic jams. With improved traffic management, people will spend less time on gridlocked roads and more time being productive and doing the things they want to do.
