established in the 70s. Since then, it underwent through two major attempts of technological renewal, without success. The public perception is of a system prone to failure, especially during rainy season. Last year, more than 35k incidents were reported. 70% of failures are due to wear and tear on equipment. The system is vulnerable to Brazilian inconstant power grid. Finally, most lights operate without central communication.

The WB is selecting a firm to provide technical advice to the City of Sao Paulo on their smart traffic lights program, with resources from the UK Prosperity Fund for Mobility. Considering the current infrastructure and traffic in São Paulo as well as the maturity of available solutions, the TA will compare technologies and develop an economic analysis to propose a strategy of gradual investments in the system to obtain increasing levels of service and sustainability.
