Project description Traffic monitoring in Figueres, Spain

Improve vehicle mobility

Figueres is the capital of the l’AltEmpordà region. Covering less than 19.38 km it is the main urban area, economic and business hub of the region. Every day 109,600 vehicles enter or exit the city of Figueres but only 22% try to access the city centre. The rest are just vehicles passing through or which want to get to one of the city’s surrounding neighbourhoods.

In 2010, the city faced alarming daily traffic congestion problems. This harmed local trade, generated high levels of CO2 in the atmosphere and caused stress and distress among citizens.

The Figueres Administration anticipated all Smart City trends with the critical and urgent objective to resolve its mobility situation and the traffic flow from east to west.

Traffic management in the city

The objective of the project that we developed with the Figueres City Council was to monitor local traffic at different points as a source for developing traffic management strategies and therefore improve mobility in the city.

Traffic sensor network

By deploying a network of traffic and parking sensors, the main accesses and streets into the city centre are monitored and controlled.

The data captured is transformed into valuable information that the city council sends in real time to citizens by means of panels so that they are aware of traffic conditions and can decide on the best way to get to and move around the city.

Additional solutions

The communication network deployed can benefit and complement other existing solutions thanks to its scalable infrastructure. It enables the introduction of other additional intelligent management solutions, avoiding having to reinvest in the communication network.

End-to-end service

In the project developed in Figueres, we based our proposal on solutions that meet both the needs of administrations and citizens.

We developed an end-to-end system that provides a complete service:

  1. Sensing System
  2. Data transmission elements
  3. Software management platform
