Dresden's Traffic Management System VAMOS
Well on its way to become a smart city, Saxony’s state capital Dresden aptly demonstrates how traffic flows can be controlled intelligently. The Traffic Management System VAMOS was developed in cooperation with Dresden University of Technology. The system integrates the more than 1,000 traffic detectors available in the region as well as the diverse traffic control and traffic management systems of the city’s road network and the adjacent federal expressways. With the help of these detection points, the system identifies the current traffic situation, calculates variants of the optimal traffic flow, and controls Dresden’s traffic fully automatically. The traffic data center, which is located at Dresden University of Technology, is the hub of the system.
