Known as MODERATO (Management of Origin-Destination-Related Adaptation for Traffic Optimization), this cutting-edge technology hails from Japan and is projected to find its application at critical intersections within the heart of Bengaluru. By the conclusion of September this year, the city’s core areas could witness the implementation of this state-of-the-art solution, offering the potential for a significant transformation in traffic management.

According to the report, a total of 28 junctions along MG Road, Hosur Road, and Old Madras Road are earmarked for system installations. However, it is important to highlight that prominent and heavily congested junction such as Silk Board, Dairy Circle, Tin Factory, and Hebbal will not be encompassed within the scope of the project’s implementation.

What is Japanese Technique:

The Area Traffic Control System (ATCS), which operates on the MODERATO platform, dynamically adapts signal timings through real-time traffic volume data collected from its integrated sensors. This Rs 70 crore initiative was initially unveiled in 2014. As reported by Money Control, the project’s original completion target of October 2022 was not met, and now the implementation is anticipated to conclude by September of this year.

How does it Work: 

In accordance with a Directorate of Urban Land Transport (DULT) official cited in a 2019 Times of India article, the employment of the MODERATO signal control technique is expected to alleviate congestion, diminish queue lengths, and enhance travel speeds along these roadways.

Bengaluru ‘s Traffic Woes:

Navigating Bengaluru’s intricate web of notorious traffic and persistent bottlenecks has long posed a significant challenge. A February report by Dutch geolocation technology company TomTom underscored this reality, ranking Bengaluru as the most congested city in India and the second-most congested globally.

Nevertheless, a promising shift is on the horizon with the comprehensive integration of Japanese technology. As indicated in a report by Bengaluru Mirror, the impending implementation of this innovative solution is projected to bring about substantial improvements. Forecasts indicate potential reductions of 13% in delays at junctions and an even more significant 30% decrease in queuing, hinting at a transformative change in the city’s traffic landscape.
