Imtech's ImFlow: world's first policy-based adaptive urban traffic control
Imtech (technical services provider in Europe) launches at the Intertraffic exhibition ‘ImFlow’, a new adaptive traffic control system that is easy to configure, building directly on the policies of the city. The uniqueness of ImFlow is its real-time adaptive algorithm that automatically translates the configured policies into optimal flow.

infrasite_insert_image_1 ImFlow will be officially launched on Tuesday, 27th March, at 10:30 am by Jan Casteleijn, Managing Director of Imtech Traffic & Infra. The traffic-related media are especially invited to join this occasion at the stand of Imtech Traffic & Infra (10.101). A demonstration of ImFlow will show the effectiveness on urban traffic flows.

Imtech Traffic & Infra, Managing Director Jan Casteleijn: ‘Effective and environmentally friendly transportation is the key to a city or region’s economy and environment, making it a better place to live and work. The city’s long-term strategy drives its policies, programs, design criteria, and projects that will further enhance the city or region’s mobility. ImFlow works directly with these policies. We are proud to introduce ImFlow as the tool to reduce congestion and to maximise the effectiveness of public transport.’

Adaptive and real time
ImFlow is a highly scalable system suitable for single intersections, corridors and large city networks. The uniqueness of ImFlow is its real-time adaptive algorithm that automatically translates policy into optimal traffic flow. A set of policies represent a scenario. Within a scenario each policy is assigned a level of importance allowing the user to balance the importance of the traffic flows, priority vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists within the network. ImFlow supports multi-criteria optimisation at area, route and intersection levels and allows policies to be defined for each level.

Prioritising and predicting
ImFlow tracks all priority vehicles within the networks and predicts the arrival and departure of public transport vehicles at signalised intersections and stops. A public transport vehicle receives conditional priority based on the configured policies and its current status. ImFlow provides information to pedestrians and cyclists about remaining waiting time. ImFlow can communicate with individual vehicles using cooperative technology.
