Robotic device to control reversible lane in Taicang, Suzhou
Photo taken on November 18, 2020 shows a solar-powered robotic device is installed on Dongcang South Road in Taicang, under the administration of Suzhou City.
As the first smart transportation project in Suzhou, the device can automatically control a reversible lane after it’s put into service later this month.
A reversible lane is a lane in which traffic may travel in either direction, depending on certain conditions. The system, controlled by an app, can finish the lane changing in 30 seconds and improve traffic flow during rush hours.
