Tallinn to forecast city traffic with digital system

Earlier this month, the Tallinn Transport Department announced that it has developed a digital model of a new generation that can study and analyze the traffic movements occurring in the city and thus make predictions that would greatly help with traffic management.

The model incorporates continuously updated data for 130 000 road sections and 51 450 nodes in the capital and takes into account the movements of private cars, public transport vehicles, trucks and pedestrians.

The digital system can be used to distinguish between 12 different types of road users, including students, commuters with and without cars, and pensioners from Tallinn and elsewhere in Harju County. This helps to predict and take into account the transport needs of different people in the city.
