Presenting the World’s smartest traffic management system at ITS World Congress 2022
- Kapsch Intelligent Corridor is using the latest technology to reduce traffic jams and improve road safety

Vienna/Los Angeles, September 12, 2022 – At this year’s ITS World Congress in LA, David Bolt, VP Sales and Solution Consulting for the APAC region, will provide an update on how the Kapsch & AIMES Intelligent Corridor project is going and explain six defined use cases focused at congestion management and improving road safety. The project was launched by Kapsch TrafficCom in March of this year together with the University of Melbourne and the Victorian Department of Transport (DOTVic) supported by a AUD 2 million Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage grant from the Federal Government.
“Our idea is to use new and existing technology to provide effective 'change levers' to traffic operators, improving the transport network and the surrounding environment for all traffic participants,” David Bolt says ahead of his appearance at the ITS World Congress.
Covering a 2.5 kilometer stretch of Nicholson Street between Alexandra and Victoria Parades, the Intelligent Corridor uses sensors, cloud-based AI, machine learning algorithms, predictive models and real time-data capture to improve traffic management – easing congestion, improving road safety for cars, pedestrians and cyclists, and reducing emissions from clogged traffic. The Intelligent Corridor marks a significant new phase, providing a new level of monitoring, with sensors on every intersection and a host of initiatives that will create a world-leading traffic management system.
“The challenge is turning the mountain of data that is available into usable information. Our task is connecting the right data and focusing on usable outcomes to enable and inform operators. Based on those outcomes, a number of use cases can be identified that are actively impacting traffic participants,” David continues.
The Kapsch Intelligent Corridor is part of the AIMES (Australian Integrated Multimodal EcoSystem) network. AIMES is the world’s first and largest ecosystem for testing emerging connected transport technologies at large scale in complex urban environments. It incorporates over 100 kilometers of road network in Melbourne and receives support from the Victorian Department of Transport.
