TechRound Interview with Tal Kreisler: Bringing Traffic Lights to the 21st Century

NoTraffic develops a platform that brings traffic light interchanges to the 21st century. Our real-time, plug-and-play autonomous traffic management platform uses AI to reinvent how cities run their transport networks, by combining sophisticated, AI-based Sensor Unit (SU), an Optimization Engine (CU) and a Cloud backend for Analytics and Management.

NoTraffic Co-Founders

Our platform can detect, categorize, and track all road users – including passenger and non-passenger       vehicles, bikes, e-scooters, buses, and pedestrians, offering unparallel capabilities to improve traffic flow,   reduce congestion, minimize waiting times and more.

Our platform is already installed at selected intersections in Phoenix, Chandler, and Tucson in Arizona, as well as in the State of California, to name a few.

How did you come up with the idea for the company?

My co-founder, Uriel, came up with the initial idea, back in 2011. He was driving home late at night and arrived at an intersection, with no on-coming traffic. After waiting for a good 3-4 minutes for Green, he started moving back and forth, seeking that underground pressure sensor. As an engineer by heart, he just couldn’t accept that this is the best we can do.

We founded NoTraffic in 2017 with a mission to fix those bugging waiting times, but as we looked deeper, we realized that this problem is just the tip of the iceberg.
