Surtrac, an innovative, real-time traffic signal control technology from Carnegie Mellon University, has won the Le Monde Smart Cities Global Innovation Award in the mobility category.

Le Monde, a Paris-based newspaper, received more than 200 entries from five continents for the competition's seven categories. Surtrac was the only U.S.-based winner selected by an international jury of 17 urban planners, sociologists, journalists and innovation experts.

"It has been a fascinating experience to select applications from all over the world," said Francis Pisani, a jury member and journalist who covers urban change and innovation for Le Monde. "We are very proud to award Surtrac's outstanding technology with the first prize in mobility. It sits well within a very balanced list of prizewinners in which the other laureates come from Nigeria, Costa Rica, India, Canada and France."
