Stockholm uses BlipTrack to ease road congestion

Stockholm is adopting queue and flow measurement technology from business intelligence company Blip Systems to help alleviate congestions and provide road users with more accurate, live traffic information.

The number of cars on the roads in the Swedish capital is constantly increasing leading to higher congestion, reduced road accessibility, and increased environmental pollution.

Therefore the city is using the Denmark-based firm’s BlipTrack queue and travel time measurement technology to increase travel time transparency, reduce environmental impact and optimise traffic flow as well as provide a detailed, up-close analysis of ongoing issues.

The solution is primarily based on measuring the movement of Bluetooth and wi-fi-enabled devices in cars. It provides the city with both real-time and historic traffic information, including detailed statistical information on the travel times, average speeds, dwell times, and movement patterns.
