TRAFFIC CONTROL SYSTEMS TO ALLEVIATE CONGESTION AND AIR POLLUTION

After underlining the importance of the environmental problems that arise from the increase of traffic levels in cities, and re-examining the main consequences and possibilities for their improvement, some experiments carried out in Barcelona are set out. The introduction of an intelligent traffic control system in a congested area of the city has brought substantial improvements in traffic conditions and significant reductions of fuel consumption and emission of atmospheric pollutants. Future possibilities for systems based on traffic control are emphasized in order to improve their environmental consequences.
