The techies in Scottsdale's traffic control department are really going all out to alleviate traffic. With a new wirelessly integrated camera and monitoring system that will simultaneously sync lights to real-time traffic conditions and revolutionize the city's traffic control apparatus, the geniuses behind the stop lights have really outdone themselves.
When you're trying to drive on city streets during rush hour, it's frustrating to keep hitting red lights that are not in sync with current traffic conditions.
Now the city of Scottsdale is addressing this problem with state of the art technology.
To speed up traffic flow, Scottsdale city workers installed video cameras so they can precisely match traffic light sequencing with the flow of traffic.
What makes this unusual is that it's being done on a wireless mesh network. It delivers live video to the traffic control center.
