Telvent awarded contract to implement its SmartMobility system in Beijing

Telvent has been awarded a contract from the Beijing Traffic Police to help to expand the city’s urban traffic management system, by implementing its SmartMobility Traffic technology on more than 200 junctions, in doing so enabling Beijing authorities to improve traffic flow, increase drivers’ safety and reduce air pollution. When the project is completed, the citizens of Beijing will enjoy shorter travel times throughout the city, as well as a reduction in delays and backups due to traffic congestion. Traffic flow and drivers’ safety within the city will be improved and traffic operators will benefit from being able to use installations that help to operate and manage urban mobility efficiently, reducing their response time. All of the enhancements will reduce both the emission of contaminating agents and noise pollution, allowing Beijing to move forward in its efforts to create a sustainable city.

Telvent’s SmartMobility system allows for the centralization of traffic and enforcement management in order to enable traffic operators to control traffic in real-time and be prepared to respond quickly and effectively to any emergency situation occurring within the infrastructure. This will lead to a substantial improvement in incident response times and more efficient management of maintenance plans which, in turn, will lead to a decrease in accident rates and an increase in users’ safety. A number of systems will be implemented and integrated on the control center, including an advanced traffic management system, a red light and speed enforcement system, closed-circuit television (CCTV) surveillance, and a communications network.

Announcing the contract, Ignacio Gonzalez, Telvent’s CEO, said, “China is a very important market for us. This agreement demonstrates our active involvement in the Chinese traffic sector and helps Beijing’s Local Authorities in its commitment to optimize urban mobility, with the aim of creating a more pleasant and secure environment for citizens and improving their quality of life.”

The latest agreement is added to the newly awarded contracts to supply urban mobility management systems on Fushun, Bayannur, Urumqi, Dongsheng and Nanning. The company has been active in China since 1990, and has participated in a variety of mobility management undertakings in other Chinese cities, including Beijing, Wuhan, Changchun, Zhengzhou, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Nanning and Tianjin.
