Absolutely all megacities of the world are permanently suffering from traffic crowding, which negatively affects the business environment and the economy as a whole. One of the reasons for the formation of crowding is the lack of adequate transport infrastructure or when it works at the limit of its capabilities. However, in most cases, poor (ineffective) traffic management remains the main cause. Based on this premise, the importance and relevance of the tasks of strategic planning for the development of transport infrastructure and traffic management with the widespread use of digital technologies become obvious. The intelligent transport management center has been operating in Baku for a long time, but the city’s transport system needs effective smart measures. The article analyzes the problem of practical modeling of traffic flows within the existing road infrastructure of the Baku urban agglomeration and, using the example of a pilot project of the IT-company SINAM, proposes an appropriate solution based on the integration platform of intelligent transport infrastructure (pp.32-39).
