Abstract : This paper reports leading-edge projects of traffic management centers in French cities. It provides an overview of the urban traffic management situation in France. It shows how technologies play a major role to implement cities policies. Traffic management systems can rely on technologies to give bus-tram priority, to preserve city center access, to monitor traffic, to manage traffic flow and to inform citizens. It highlights the importance of a strong communication network to analyze and to treat real-time data using powerful algorithms. It was found that traffic management centers are at the forefront of progress. Not only they optimize network performance of all traffic types but also experiment innovative solutions to reduce pollution, to exchange information or to promote modal shifts. It aims to create a sustainable urban environment and development.
