Traffic management in a Smart City scenario

Exploiting real time data to improve urban planning and air quality.

Smart Cities are urban environments in which, the stream of data coming from very different observational networks is managed and integrated in order to efficiently improve public services and the life quality of the citizens.
Focusing on smart mobility, we present as proof of concept the case study of Crema (in collaboration with SIMET – Gruppo ENERCOM), where a coupled traffic and air quality measurement system was developed to real-time monitoring the traffic composition (vehicles categories) and its related emission of pollutants.
The developed tool represents a data-driven decision-making support that can be used for urban planning, traffic optimization and pollution control.
