Maxim Liksutov, Debuty Mayor, said that Moscowâs newly implemented Intelligent Traffic System (ITS) stands out as one of the best in the world. At the heart of Moscowâs ITS system is PTV Optima. This model-based solution of the PTV Group provides accurate traffic information in real-time and enables dynamic forecasting for a timescale of 60 minutes. Moscow is one of the biggest cities in the world - and it has its fair share of traffic challenges, particularly during rush hour. The international metropolis has to contend with heavy congestion on its arterial and ring roads. To counter this, the city has opted to implement state-of-the-art traffic management technology. During the implementation, emphasis was placed on the connection to the cityâs signal control systems in particular. This will help traffic managers in future to react flexibly to traffic conditions through adaptive changes.
