Traffic Sensing And Monitoring
What is the identified problem?
Traffic congestion has been one of the fundamental problems faced by modern cities since the wide usage of automobiles. Just a normal few minutes trip to the convenience store may take up to half an hour due to traffic jam or slowdown. According to the police, congestions are actually the causes of some issues like road rage, road bullies and major accidents.
Brief about Solution
1.ESTABLISHMENT OF SENSORS AT EVERY FIVE K.M.
2.PLACING PNEUMATIC TUBES ALONG THE ROAD SIDE WHERE IT COUNTS THE NUMBER OF VEHICLES PASS BY.
3.THE SENSOR DETECTS THE VEHICLES AND SENDS THE INFORMATION TO DATABASE.
4.THE DETAILS WILL BE DISPLAYED ON THE ELECTRICAL HOARDING WHERE IT DISPLAYS NO. OF VEHICLES PASSED BY AND ANOTHER ALTERNATE ROUTE.
5. THE DATABASE WILL BE UPDATED EVERY MINUTE AND DISPLAYS THE CURRENT SITUATION.
6. AT THE TIME OF EMERGENCY (AMBULANCE,POLICE VAN etc.) HAS TO PAY AND USE THE ROADS WHEN THE SENSOR BLOCKS AFTER VEHICLES PASSED BY.
7. OVERALL A SMOOTH FLOW OF TRAFFIC.
1.REDUCES THE TRAFFIC DURING PEAK HOURS AND ALSO POLLUTION
2.PEOPLE USING THEIR PRIVATE VEHICLES FOR GOING TO NEAR BY SHOPS WILL NOT USE THEM.
3.PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION INCREASES
