Turkey's most comprehensive intelligent traffic system came to life in Izmir. The new system, which controls and controls all the main arteries of the city for 24 hours and manages the traffic, was unveiled for the first time. The doors of the center, which is the heart of the system called İzmir Transportation Center (İZUM), were opened with the information meeting attended by İzmir Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Aziz Kocaoğlu. Mayor Kocaoglu, such a comprehensive system said they were proud to be the first municipality to pass life in Turkey.
Smart, green and founded a city transport for disabled-friendly "Intelligent Traffic System" was implemented first time in Turkey by Izmir Metropolitan Municipality. İzmir Transportation Center (İZUM), where all the main arterial roads of İzmir are kept under control and control for 24 hours and the city traffic is managed, opened its doors to the press members for the first time. The center of the system, which includes dozens of features such as smart intersections, traffic monitoring cameras, measurement, monitoring, violation detection systems, speed corridors, was introduced at the meeting attended by İzmir Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Aziz Kocaoğlu. Kader Sertpoyraz, Head of the Transportation Department of Izmir Metropolitan Municipality, explained the details of the system that enables the control of Izmir traffic from a single center.
It cost 61.5 million TL
Izmir Metropolitan Mayor Aziz Kocaoglu, in his assessment Following the presentation, 61 million 500 thousand TL in the mind of the Intelligent Traffic System, which producer and science directory domain, stating that a product of participative management approach, the system is in this context that implements the first municipality they are in Turkey told. President Kocaoğlu pointed out that the Intelligent Traffic System infrastructure has been adjusted to be directed according to future needs and said:
“As long as the work continues, we will solve our problems with more information flow and more comfortable traffic. We will be able to learn the empty places in the car parks with smart phones, and the waiting times at the red lights at the intersections will decrease. This will both contribute to the economy and enable our citizens to go where they want to go in a short time. The location of pharmacies and health institutions in the system, and the identification of the license plate of those who commit traffic are among the advantages of the system. "
Solution in rail system
Metropolitan Mayor Aziz Kocaoglu, the big cities of the city center to come with special tools, emphasized that it became increasingly difficult and the solution of this is to direct people to mass transportation, he said. Mayor Kocaoglu, the public transportation in the city, the passenger density by directing the rail system, said they took important steps.
Stating that the works in Konak Tramway are now at the final stage, Mayor Aziz Kocaoğlu continued:
"KarşıyakaSimilar problems occurred during the construction in. But it's over and it's relieved now. Our fellow citizens are satisfied. We are already working to extend the line to include Çiğli Katip Çelebi University and Atatürk Organized Industrial Zone. Konak Tramway will end at the beginning of the year. We believe that the opposite of these complaints will return to satisfaction when they are over. We have devoted most of our investments to infrastructure investments for 13.5 years. When I took office, there was a 11-kilometer rail system, 70-75 thousand people were transported per day. Now 650 thousand passengers are transported by rail system. With the commissioning of Konak Tramway after the New Year, we will carry 800 - 850 thousand people. If we did not make these investments, imagine that 850 thousand people were transported by bus. Consider what the city will become with more than 1000 buses going into traffic. Tender preparations of Narlıdere Metro have been completed. Buca Metro is waiting for approval at the Ministry of Development. We plan to lay the foundation in 2018. Our rail system network is 178 kilometers this year. 21 km. We will have found 200 kilometers with Buca Metro. There are many subway and tram suggestions in the Transportation Master Plan. By preparing their projects, we are really trying to weave the city with iron nets and transfer most of the transportation from above and below the ground to the rail system. ”
What does the Smart Traffic System bring?
The system won the eri best project award l among all the categories at the Intertraffic Fair in Amsterdam last year, and it will facilitate the daily lives of the people of İzmir, in addition to obtaining data that are of great importance for traffic engineering. With the WEB application, the traffic flow and density can be monitored by the city and the route selection can be made accordingly. The advantages of the. Full Adaptive System salın include reducing violations of the rules, reducing emissions, and reducing fuel and spare parts expenditures. The system will provide a more reliable vehicle and pedestrian traffic as well as the high efficiency of road capacities. Shortening travel times, accumulation at intersections and reduction of waiting times will be the most important return of the system.
People of Izmir who want to benefit from the system effectively, use smart phones, tablets etc. using IOS and Android based operating systems. devices will be able to download a free application titled "İzmir Transportation Center".
Intelligent Management of Signalized Intersections: Traffic in the intersections is automatically generated according to real-time data. From the center in Toros, all streets and intersections within the scope of the smart traffic application in İzmir can be monitored and systems can be intervened from here. The system works on the basis of real-time measurement of traffic loads on the junction arms and connected intersections and the creation of the most appropriate signal plans according to the measured values. In other words, the light times at the intersections are not in pre-planned patterns, but are automatically adjusted by the computers according to the needs of the current situation.
Traffic Monitoring System: With the 103 camera installed in important transportation points of the city, the city traffic can be seen live both from İZUM and via mobile application and internet page.
Traffic Measurement System: The information obtained by the 'traffic measurement sensors' placed in the main arteries is analyzed by the system side and put into service of the drivers. Traffic estimates can be made until a week later.
Traffic violation systems: Speed violation system, red light violation system, parking violation system and gabari (height) violation under 24 hours whether the drivers under the system headings act in accordance with the rules. The system required to work in coordination with the General Directorate of Security will come into force after the signature of the relevant protocol.
Roadside parking lots: By the sensors installed under the ground, the occupancy status of the roadside car parks can be determined by the system. Thanks to the mobile application that shows the empty parking places, the parking call problem ends.
Pedestrianized Region: Architect Kemalettin, 1 within the scope of the project. Cord, Karşıyaka Centrally controlled cork barriers were installed at the entrances and exits of pedestrianized areas such as the Bazaar, Kemeralti and the Martyrs of Cyprus. At what time, which vehicle can enter the plate reading system is controlled on the basis of working. Barriers are opened when firefighters, ambulances, emergency response vehicles and vehicles with license plates are approached.
Variable Message System: 'Variable Message Systems' can be used to inform drivers instantly.
Parking Lot Management and Guidance System: Real-time occupancy information and disabled vehicle capacity information of 11.079 parking lots with a total capacity of 65 vehicles in İzmir are obtained and transmitted to the users via the website, mobile application and parking information screens along with the navigation service.
Speaking Pedestrian Button for the Disabled: The voice buttons for the visually impaired provide information on the street name, the shape of the junction, the traffic lights in the intersection, and sound and embossed. The volume is automatically adjusted to the surrounding noise up to 5 dB.
Public transport: One of the most important parts of the project is to provide facilities for public transportation. All 1500 buses were installed in cameras and passenger counters and vehicle computers on all doors. In this way, which bus driver, which bus, the number of passengers on the bus and the point where the bus can be detected with a single key. Information on when to reach which station can be accessed.
Accident and road closure information: If an accident or work due to the closing of the information and alternative routes through the system can be transferred to users.
Meteorological systems: Air temperature, road temperature, humidity, system, rain and wind information is delivered to the drivers via led screens and website.
