Mohali gets first 3-D traffic signal

  1. Mohali traffic police have launched the 3-D Smart Traffic Signal.The launch of the 3-D technique is first of its kind in the country.
  2. The wireless system called ‘Intelights’ has been installed at the traffic signals.It will regulate with a smart bird’s eye view wireless sensor system.
  3. The system proposes a 360-degree solution to curb the rising problem of traffic congestion.One of the major reasons for traffic congestion is the inefficient working of traffic signal timers installed at intersections. 
  4. Presently,the timers of traffic lights display a preset value which leads to waste of time.
  5. To tackle this issue,the system proposes an Intelligent Traffic Timer Control which uses dynamic signal control technology to adjust the timers of red,yellow and green lights according to the traffic density at an intersection.
