UMO Global Student Challenge 2013
Traffic Reduction Using Wireless Technology And Manual Techiniques
What is the identified problem?
1)Traffic due to incidents 2)Traffic due to demand for highway travel 3)Traffic due to working zones 4)Traffic due to special events and poor signals
Brief about Solution
The world population is growing exponentially and recently hit the 7 billion mark. By 2050, we will have reached 9.0 billion This leads to increase in nature of traffic congestion . The solution is not to build, the more roads that we build,the more traffic we invite onto these roads. We use information and communication technology to transport infrastructure and vehicles in a effort to improve their safety ,reliability ,efficiency ,quality & greener transportation.
Cohda Wireless is an equipment vendor in the Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) market. The Cohda MK2 Radio is an advanced DSRC device to achieve constant and robust communications for V2V and V2I applications. We can use this technology widely to reduce traffic congestion . Apart from this we can use some of the nontechnical methods .
How well does the proposed solution enable great commuter experience?
This solution involves applications of wireless network and some of the manual techniques.
How attractive is this idea for partners from transportation, business, government, non profit or other sectors to get involved?
This solution attract the passengers towards the public transportation system and also business transactions efficiently.It reduce pollution in environment by reducing the accidents and reducing reaching time of vehicle from source to destination .
Environmental impact, whether the proposed idea in predominantly service based without adding more physical structures
The solution is not to build, the more roads that we build,the more traffic we invite onto these roads. It mainly involves information and communication technology to transport infrastructure and vehicles in a effort to improve their safety ,reliability ,efficiency ,quality & greener transportation.
