The NoTraffic autonomous traffic management company has deployed an artificial intelligence (AI)-driven traffic management system in Phoenix, AZ, switching traffic-light coordination from a timer-based model to one based on demand.

The goal is to improve traffic flow and cut vehicle and pedestrian delays at intersections, and the system has reduced vehicle delays by up to 40% in some instances.

The NoTraffic platform monitors road assets as they approach an intersection and calculates optimal service for the intersection in real time, autonomously changing signals accordingly.

Phoenix Street Transportation director Kini Knudson said, "We are now seeing the convergence of technology-enabled automobiles and traffic management systems working together to move vehicles more effectively through busy corridors."
