SMART CONTRAFLOW MANAGEMENT
FULLY AUTOMATED – SECURE – EFFICIENT
Increasing worldwide traffic is addressed with a constant expansion and renewal of roads and highways.
Unfortunately, the available road diameter and traffic volume prolong the expansion significantly.
Closure of existing lanes lead to higher traffic volumes on the remaining roads, which in turn can cause additional traffic jams during rush hours.
The contraflow management system solves these problems by temporarily assigning a shared lane to the higher frequented direction of travel. The thereby enhanced flow rate of vehicles significantly improves the difficult temporary traffic situation. Furthermore, the fully automated and self-monitoring process is not reliant on workforce on site.
Following core components of the fully automated contraflow management system are highly important:
centralized sequence control
dynamic traffic signals with LED technology
safety-monitoring of the shared lane
fully automatic opening of the barriers without personnel deployment
