I suggest this because I thought it was about trafic but it's not easy to translate this phrase without any other context.

Good luck!

centre obscur

par analogie avec "dark current" = courant d'obscurité (électronique). mais ce n'est qu'une proposition.

Centre aveugle

Je traduirais cette expression de cette facon, puisqu'il s'agit d'un centre qui n'a pas l'autonomie ou les possibilites de controle du centre principal.
