Sopra Steria has worked in partnership with Transport for London (TfL) to develop new software to upgrade TfL’s incident management system.
TfL is responsible for managing 580km of London’s busiest roads, including all of the capital’s 6,400 traffic signal junctions. The new system means incidents across its vast network can be quickly identified and resolved to keep traffic moving safely, providing a single, unified view of London’s roads for the first time.
The software generates rapid alerts for TfL by analyzing large volumes of data on factors like road accidents, traffic congestion and roadworks. This ensures that vital information on incidents is quickly delivered to organizations that rely on up-to-date and accurate traffic reports, such as local authorities and emergency services across the capital.
This helps enable TfL to detect and respond to incidents efficiently, helping to improve road safety and minimize pollution and congestion across the city. “The transformative system produced from our work with Sopra Steria will enable TfL to manage our surface transport network much more effectively and gives us a vital tool to keep London moving,” Irfan Shaffi, operational control manager at TfL, said.
