Intelligent Traffic Signal Pilot 

Why does this matter?

In 2021, Long Beach agreed to a public-private partnership with Mercedes-Benz and Xtelligent to develop an adaptive transportation technology system that will improve urban transportation management and enhance environmental sustainability in and around the city. The partnership supports the City’s efforts to work with local businesses on leading edge technology and civic impact while also cultivating science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) opportunities for Long Beach students. 

What we’re doing

Over 10 months, the partnership activities will include:

  • Testing an intelligent intersection control system to safely adapt traffic signal timing at select intersections around the City.
  • Analyzing data from connected test vehicle fleets and existing physical sensors around the city to provide information that may improve future transportation policy and traffic engineering decisions.
  •  A community youth workshop for Long Beach residents and students.
