Dallas Picks Ericsson for Smart Cities Traffic Solution
 
  • Adoption of Ericsson’s Connected Urban Transport solution will help ease traffic congestion
  • Ability to share data across cities and counties to make roads safer for commuters 
  • Will improve the connection of systems to increase efficiency and reduce costs
Dubai, UAE, January 10, 2018:  The City of Dallas has selected Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) to install and host an Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS) based on Ericsson’s Connected Urban Transport solution. The city’s vision for the traffic system is an intuitive and easy-to-use interface that automates and facilitates system monitoring, management, maintenance, and performance monitoring across departments, as well as between cities and counties.
 
The Connected Urban Transport solution will give the City of Dallas and adjacent cities the ability to aggregate and analyze diverse, real-time data from traffic sensors and cameras to dynamically control traffic lights, school flashers and message signs. The solution will allow the City of Dallas to expand its knowledge about traffic issues and assist with operational decision-making to improve traffic flow.
 
William Finch, Chief Information Officer for the City of Dallas, says: “The smart way to becoming a Smart City is the intentional focus on making data actionable. Ericsson’s solution offers a lot of potential through the modernization our traffic management technology. It is from this technology that we will derive more robust data, that leads to greater business intelligence, which in turn enhances our application.”
 
The main features of the system include:
  • An ecosystem to share data and system services with other organizations in a controlled way – to increase collaboration and empowerment of other departments, travelers and transport service providers
  • A dashboard to have one central overview, across agencies, of the status of all systems – for quick troubleshooting
  • Key performance indicators (KPI’s), to monitor and track the city’s goals and suppliers’ performance – for performance and contract management
  • Automation, where one system can trigger or notify another system when thresholds are violated – for faster responses and reduced workload
Jeff Travers, Head of IoT, Ericsson, says: “The quality of a community’s transportation infrastructure is a major factor in business and industry investment decisions. The Dallas metroplex is one of the fastest growing areas in the country. Our Connect Urban Transport solution will enable the city to manage growing traffic and increase driver safety more efficiently and at lower cost.”
 
Implementation began at the end of 2017 and the system will be fully operational by 2020.
