Explain your idea in details:

For the city to be at the standard of smart city, traffic management should be number one priority. My innovation idea is one of the smartest traffic management techniques that smart city should adopt. This technology improve the way people interact with the world around them, enhance public safety and well-being, increase energy efficiency, and enable healthy and entertained communities. Video detectors uses a combination of visual cameras, thermal imaging cameras, smart video analytics, and traffic management software to support traffic operators in making roads safer and traffic flows smoother.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

1-It will reduce health challenges since traffic jam will be controlled thus reducing air pollution which is normally caused by fumes emitted with vehicles. 2-Stress level will be reduced thus result to high concentration and performance in work places because this technology will help reduce long commuting time which is normally stressful. 3-Traffic will controlled fairly from central control room thus will reduce the tendency of motorist attempt to use substitute routes to evade congestions.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

Am looking forward to pioneer this project to our a new smart technology city (Konza Technopolis) which is being build from the scratch. After implementing this project at Konza Technopolis, I also have a vision of implementing this project in all major towns including our capital city Nairobi. Konza Technopolis with collaboration with Israel embassy here in Kenya will finance the initial cost this project. We will also partner with international companies that provide the service of video detectors for traffic management in order to bring this innovation to reality.
