Transportation's Future

AI-Powered Traffic Lights

We are developing a new generation of traffic lights powered by state of the art reinforcement learning algorithms, and analyse common traffic patterns in order to calculate the most optimal traffic light state across a network of intersections.

A century old problem

Traffic Management Has Been an Issue… For a Century Now!

Legacy traffic lights are oblivious to the actual traffic. This causes drivers waiting endlessly at intersections. This causes traffic jams, congestion, pollution, aggravated public and wasted productivity at the city level. Moreover, the lack of traffic lights at numerous intersections is a safety hazard. You need to turn onto a road but you can not see the oncoming traffic. Safety is compromised.

Commute time reduced by 40%

Faster, Safer, Greener

VTL optimizes traffic flow in a global way, rather than at the intersection level. Fuel consumption is reduced by eliminating the stop-and-go at intersections observed in urban traffic.

A World of Traffic

Market and Opportunity for Growth

The total cost of traffic congestion in 2019 in USA alone was $88 Billion. Global intelligent traffic management system market size was estimated at $25.4 Billion in 2020 and is expected to reach $37.6 Billion in 2027.


Municipalities and cities

VTL seamlessly integrates smart transportation into legacy cities with pretimed traffic lights and has been proven to work even with low penetration rates.


Connected and autonomous cars

VTL removes the burden that autonomous vehicles have when determining a traffic light state using visual computing (errors, low visibility etc...).


Developing countries

Virtual traffic lights are cheaper than their physical counterpart and easier to maintain. This opens new opportunities in developing countries (e.g. in Africa).


Closed and controlled spaces

VTL's technology can be used in airports, seaports, university campuses, military bases, and other places that require monitoring and managing large vehicle fleets. Learn more .


Smart and smarter city projects

Masdar City, Neom, and other ambitious smart city project will need VTL in order to build from the ground a new generation of interconnected road network.
