Intelligent Traffic Systems
Growing volume of traffic, booming urbanization, increasing environmental pollution: These are the challenges cities and municipalities face that call for innovative solutions. And with two-thirds of the world’s population expected to live in cities by 2050, we can’t expect to sustain economic success and a growing population without addressing our infrastructure. Infrastructure that is made of the software that’s already changing how we plan a trip, catch a cab, or find out when the next bus or train is coming. This software-based infrastructure – when applied to our roads – can help us practically eliminate crashes and manage traffic much more effectively. As an integrated solution provider, Siemens Intelligent Traffic Systems delivers solutions that help cities think mobility further through adaptable and modular traffic management solutions. The next mobility revolution starts today and our Connected Vehicle solution allows us to hit the ground running. V2X technologies will help reduce congestion during peak travel times, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and increase safety.
Customer Benefits of Using Siemens Products:
Our systems are fully scalable, modular, and highly functional traffic management systems.
This allows the successive realization of a wide range of scalable applications, from entry-level solutions for a limited number of field devices right up to complex, integrated traffic management systems, in step with the city’s budget and changing demand.

Advanced transportation systems improve traffic flow during game day
Ann Arbor, MI
Siemens has chosen Ann Arbor, MI as the company’s first Center of Excellence for Intelligent Traffic Technology. Understanding the impact integrating intelligent software and hardware can have on significantly improving a city’s transportation system, Siemens provides Ann Arbor with its latest innovative hardware and software technology to help expand the city’s smart traffic system infrastructure. Ann Arbor will be among the country’s first real-world implementations of this latest intelligent traffic technology and the partnership will allow the city to continue to modernize and enhance its transportation systems through improved intelligence.
The next mobility revolution starts today with ingenious technologies that connect us all
Siemens, as a member of the Tampa-Hillsborough Expressway Authority (THEA) team, has been chosen by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) to provide innovative vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) technology for a new Connected Vehicle pilot project. Siemens V2I technology will enable vehicles and pedestrians to communicate with traffic infrastructure, like intersections and traffic lights, in real-time, to reduce congestion specifically during peak rush hour in downtown Tampa. The technology will also significantly help improve safety and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This is one of three projects funded by the USDOT to pilot next-generation technology in infrastructure and vehicles that can impact unimpaired vehicle crashes, which make up 80 percent of the crashes on the road.
Powerful customer partnerships lead to ingenious traffic management solutions
Seattle, WA will implement Concert, an integrated traffic management platform that connects both Siemens and third-party systems across the city including traffic control centers, intersection controllers, and parking guidance systems. The software will link these traffic planning and control systems so Seattle can take better advantage of its existing road infrastructure, lessen the impact of major traffic incidents, better manage traffic around large events such as football games, and reduce overall congestion.
