Pattaya will automate its traffic signals under a deal signed Monday with Intelligent Traffic Information Center.
ITIC Chairman Ninnart Chaiteerapinyo and Pattaya Mayor Sonthaya Kunplome signed the agreement that will see the non-profit organization collect traffic information from government and private sectors to develop a real-time traffic system to reduce congestion and improve road safety.
The system will use the hundreds of previously inoperable closed-circuit cameras to manage traffic flows and automate and synchronize signals.
ITIC was founded to focus on the use of information technology and communication with smart data-transmission technology for public benefit.
Real-time traffic information will be sent to users of various online platforms and services.
