First Smart City project in Peru relies on Kapsch TrafficCom
- Lima District Miraflores introduces intelligent mobility and safety management
- State-of-the-art technology developed by Kapsch TrafficCom and Cibernos
Lima, July 20, 2022 – Miraflores is the first city to launch a comprehensive Smart City project in Peru. The objective: Improve the quality of life for citizens by strengthening security as well as efficient traffic management and making the district more sustainable. To this end, a modular growth platform will integrate various information such as on mobility, security, tourism and the environment using open protocols and analytics.
Mobility solution provided by Kapsch
The mobility and safety verticals of the project rely on advanced technology developed by Kapsch TrafficCom and Cibernos. The two companies make up the consortium chosen by Miraflores to provide the mobility and safety management systems. These will be integrated into the city's Smart City platform. For mobility management, Kapsch will implement its Ecotrafix™ solution, a state-of-the-art integrated mobility management software. The technology has already been implemented in cities such as Buenos Aires, Madrid, Belo Horizonte, Panama City, among several others around the world.
State-of-the-art traffic management increases safety
Mobility in the city will be improved by intelligent traffic signalization with EcoTrafiX Controller™ which is highly robust and efficient and has the most advanced functionalities in terms of traffic management. In addition, intelligent horizontal signaling for crosswalks will be implemented, with traffic lights that replicate the on-road signaling by illuminating the floor at the crossings to increase pedestrian safety.
The project also includes the installation of more than 300 cameras with various functions such as license plate recognition, facial recognition, traffic analytics and photo fines, the latter managed by the powerful EcoTrafix Enforce™ module. The new cameras will generate an electronic perimeter for access control and road safety. Integrated into the EcoTrafix™ platform, they will be able to generate data on traffic flow, vehicle fleet and service level status on the municipality's roads, in addition to enabling easy recognition of pedestrians to enhance citizen safety, traffic and pedestrian traceability. Thus, district managers will have access to the necessary information for an intelligent and proactive management of mobility.
