"Vienna's Green Wave Initiative: Transforming Urban Mobility with Innovative Tra
Kapsch TrafficCom drives progress towards sustainable mobility with its smart urban traffic concepts.
Vienna is tackling congestion and emissions through an innovative 'green wave' solution developed by Kapsch TrafficCom. In a pilot program, drivers can use a mobile app to synchronize their speed with traffic signals, minimizing stops and reducing overall journey times. The service, soon to integrate with navigation providers, aims to enhance biking comfort in the city as well. Vienna has already experienced benefits such as reduced stop-start driving and faster commute times. While improvements in emissions and air quality are more challenging to quantify, they are expected outcomes. This green wave initiative is just the beginning of Vienna's Traffic and Demand Management strategy, with future plans including "Traffic Management 2.0," incorporating networked traffic lights and green navigation. The long-term vision involves integrating these functions directly into vehicles, preparing the city for innovations like autonomous driving.
