Urbotics is defined as the collection of city automated-systems that aids different services of energy management, security, welfare and communication. The introduction of these new technologies makes possible that the city becomes an active city where technology is integrated into intelligent urban design and, so, the city can adapt itself to population needs. One of the most important city problems is the high rate of traffic accidents where vehicles and pedestrians are involved. In this context, Tau Ceramica, Miniatec and the Instituto de Biomecánica de Valencia (IBV) have developed an intelligent traffic-lights: an urbotic application with the aim of improving traffic-lights regulation and car and pedestrian flows in key and/or trouble points of city.
