Road Traffic

Less waiting times at red lights

Network control with Genetic Algorithms optimizes the Green Waves on all major roads in Ingolstadt. The results were evaluated after three test series with floating cars.

The AUDI test cars drove through Ingolstadt for several days and recorded how the time loss in the road network changed with the new traffic control. Compared to the old system, the savings are significant:

between 6:30 and 9:00 a.m.: 19% less waiting times

between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.: 9% less waiting times

between 3:00 and 7:00 p.m.: 32% less waiting times

Daily average: 21% less waiting times

The results show that the new technology is most efficient during peek times. Public transport acceleration benefits as well. Better traffic flow leads to less air pollution and economic savings.
