Traffic congestion in Sharjah will soon ease thanks to artificial intelligence (AI) powering some signals in the emirate. The Sharjah Roads and Transport Authority (SRTA) said 48 AI-enhanced traffic signals will increase traffic flow by up to 30 percent.

Sensors and cameras will analyze traffic in real time to adjust signal timings.

Yousif Alathmani, SRTA president, said traffic lights will remain green or red longer depending on traffic volume and trends. The AI ​​learning process is continuous and the system is updated accordingly.

In 2023, STRA carried out two projects in Ittihad Road and Al Taawun area to facilitate traffic between Sharjah and Dubai.
