An Approach for Traffic Congestion Detection and Traffic Control System

Part of the Lecture Notes in Networks and Systems book series (LNNS,volume 40)

Abstract

The evolution of the computer technologies is playing important role in the development and planning of the smart transportation system for the public domain. The smart transportation management monitors and manages the traffic in real time. This paper proposes an approach for smart traffic monitoring and control system. The proposed system aims to provide least congestion routes for the emergency services. This approach detects the congestion and tracks the locations of the emergency vehicles in real time and notifies the traffic control room. The detection of the congestion is based on the images obtained from the cameras installed at various locations in the city. The RFID readers are used to detect and track the location of the emergency vehicles. Traffic control rooms control the traffic lights based on the congestion information and location of the emergency vehicles. The RFID module is simulated in NS2, and congestion detection module is implemented in OpenCV and Java. The proposed approach is suitable for creating green corridors for emergency vehicles.
