Why fixed-time traffic light control is superior at preventing traffic congestion

Published - 9 months ago    ·    14 minutes read    ·    insight
Fixed-time traffic light control leads superior performance in heavy traffic situations. This may seem counter-intuitive in a day and age where an abundance of fine-grained traffic data is available. So how come fixed-time control, a strategy that does not require such fine-grained data, is superior during peak hours? In this blog post we give an intuitive explanation.

Worlds fastest optimization has become even faster

Published - 11 months ago    ·    5 minutes read    ·    development
With pride we announce the results of our most recent back-end developments. Our algorithms and the advanced mathematics supporting it, are the driving force behind Swift Mobility. They enable quick and automated optimization of fixed-time schedules and phasediagrams for traffic light control. Hence, we are continuously developing these algorithms, which has resulted in significant speedups.

The importance of sequence

Published - 1 years ago    ·    8 minutes read    ·    insight
Optimizing traffic light control is essential to keep waiting times limited during peak hours. An important aspect is choosing the order in which the different signal groups switch to green. In this blog post we show just how important th order is in heavy traffic; selecting the right sequence could truly mean the difference between smooth traffic flow and traffic congestion.
