UK Power Networks deploys AI traffic lights across UK to cut congestion

The smart system works to reduce traffic queuing time and allow maximum traffic flow during repair and installation work

UK Power Networks has successfully deployed its artificial intelligence (AI) ‘smart’ traffic lights in the UK.

The smart system, called 'autoGreen' makes automatic adjustments to traffic light signals in case of congestion, in order to allow maximum traffic flow during peak hours and while repair and installation work is being carried out.

UK Power Networks trialled the system last year in Kent, before deploying it in the South East and East of England - it was noted to have brought down journey times by a ‘significant’ margin, while also improving safety and air quality.
