Growing traffic flows are causing great difficulties, especially in conurbations. Intelligent traffic information and management systems help to reduce traffic jams, accidents and carbon dioxide emissions by up to 20 percent.
Control technology and telematic solutions from Siemens can ensure optimal utilization of existing traffic networks. Snarl-ups are minimized, unnecessary energy consumption is avoided, and CO2 emissions are reduced. "By managing and monitoring networked traffic flows, our goal is to make mobility in cities significantly more efficient, and above all more environmentally friendly," said Sami Atiya, Head of the Mobility and Logistics Division of Siemens' new Infrastructure & Cities Sector.
Under the motto "Smarter on the way", Siemens Mobility and Logistics will be showcasing new products and solutions for intelligent traffic solutions at the World Congress 2012 in Vienna on October 22-26.
