SSI Bogotá – a new era for traffic management in one of the most complex cities of America
The modernization of the Intelligent Traffic Light System of Bogotá
We have modernized the three control centers that existed in the city and managed the old traffic light system through telephone cables. Today, with the implementation of the intelligent traffic light system, we have three centers concentrated in one location. The city has upgraded its communications system and protocol from a proprietary protocol that communicated over phone wire to an open OCIT protocol system that communicates over fiber optic cables, which allows us to expand the scope and amount of information, monitoring and timely response to the problems and congestion the city experiences on a day-to-day basis.
This control center is the result of the development of our technology, which not only makes decisions, but also gives the city a powerful tool for analyzing mobility and defining indicators and public policies that allow continuous improvement of the system. Bogotá now has a powerful system at the level of the most important cities in the world to improve the living conditions of all of us.
