Under the project, the Military Industry and Telecommunications Group (Viettel Group) will set up an intelligent traffic operation center at Ha Noi Public Transport Management and Operations, and install intelligent equipment at two intersections on Pham Van Bach Street in Cau Giay District.

The ITS will monitor the traffic system, provide traffic information, handle violations of traffic order and safety, and manage public transport, incidents, infrastructure, parking, and payment for public transport electronic tickets.

At the Smart Traffic Operation Center, ITS provides real-time information and flexible traffic control solutions to ensure traffic order and safety, reduce travel time and costs, and minimize traffic accidents.

At the two intersections on Pham Van Bach Street, cameras will be installed to measure traffic density along the route and integrate traffic data with mapping applications. The cameras will be used to detect traffic violations and assist Ha Noi Police in handling violations.

The Ha Noi Department of Transport is in charge of the pilot project and will report the results to the city's People's Committee.

According to Nguyen Phi Thuong, Director of the city's Department of Transportation, developing a smart and sustainable traffic system is a trend in all urban areas around the world.

Previously, the Ha Noi Department of Transportation also piloted a vehicle overweight warning system on the Thai Ha-Chua Boc overpass starting December 1, 2022. The signs help detect, classify, and identify oversized trucks and vehicles, and display their license plate number on the electronic board as a warning.

The groundwork for applying science and technology to traffic management and operations in Ha Noi was laid in 2014 when the Ha Noi People's Committee tasked the city's Department of Transportation with renovating and upgrading the traffic light control center and peripherals./.
