Dallas-Fort Worth is grappling with escalating traffic issues and a pressing need for safer roads. In response, several municipalities are turning to cutting-edge technology.

Arlington, Dallas, Fort Worth, Garland and McKinney are among the cities embracing AI-driven technology to manage traffic more effectively. One such system gaining attention is NoTraffic, which adjusts traffic signals based on real-time conditions.

Arlington recently announced its intent to expand the NoTraffic platform following a successful pilot program, as highlighted in a press release by PR Newswire. 

"We are thrilled to see Arlington embrace our traffic management solution. The decision to extend the implementation to more intersections highlights our system's positive impact on the city's transportation infrastructure," said Tal Kreisler, CEO and Co-Founder of NoTraffic. "At NoTraffic, we are committed to creating innovative, future-proof solutions that address the evolving needs of Arlington and many additional municipalities within the DFW Metroplex and across the state of Texas."

The population boom in North Texas has increased congestion at intersections, making technology like sensors crucial for better traffic management. 

According to The Dallas Morning News, Arlington is spending an estimated $1 million over the next two years for NoTraffic. That money comes from bond funds allocated for traffic signal improvement. “NoTraffic's system expansion aligns with our broader goals of creating a smart and efficient transportation network that caters to the needs of residents," said Mayor Ross of Arlington in a press release.

NoTraffic's platform seamlessly transforms signalized intersections into software-defined infrastructure within hours. With its AI-enabled mobility platform prioritizing safety and adaptability, NoTraffic is equipped to cater to the diverse needs of modern transportation, including detecting vulnerable road users like pedestrians and cyclists.

NoTraffic is currently deployed in numerous locations across North America and operates in more than 25 states, including Texas, California, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Florida, Georgia and parts of Canada.
