Orange Traffic Innovates in Montreal

Montreal is known for being a vibrant city and the illumination of the JacquesCartier Bridge even added to this reality. The idea of the project was to illuminate the bridge to make it interactive with what is happening throughout the city in all its aspects; illuminated through by real-time social media activity and big urban data. Moment Factory thought about Orange Traffic to get a pulse of the traffic on the bridge to change the flow of the illumination. The data was collected with Peek’s ADR Counters and Wavetronix radars.

Presently, we are working with KPH during the huge construction of the new Turcot Interchange. With both our radars and Bluetooth systems, performance reports are made daily for the MTQ to show statistics about the traffic flow by classifying and counting vehicles and detect their speed. This solution helps engineers find the best detours for all drivers during the construction of the new and optimal configuration.

An important upcoming project is the Louis-Hippolyte Lafontaine Tunnel using both our Citilog AID (Automatic Incident Detection) System to implement real-time incident detection systems in the LHL Tunnel. This solution will automatically notice the control center when an unfamiliar situation is detected for them to send the appropriate help onsite. The automation of this system saves a lot of time and money to the city and road users by optimizing fluidity
at all times.
