Intelligent transportation system and smart traffic flow with IOT

Kaluvana, Hariharan


There has been an increase in vehicles across the globe. Also, the congestion due to traffic has leapfrogged in India. Thetraffic flow information has been required to find out the route with minimum congestion and forecast the traffic. And thishas been a part of the Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) which would help build smart cities. A lot of work has beendone on the traffic measurement system. But the integration of emerging techniques such as the Internet of Things (IoT) andcloud computing has provided a lot of research scope in ITS. This paper has proposed an IoT-based method to determinethe real-time traffic flow in a road section with ultrasonic sensors, Arduino, ESP8266 Wi-Fi module, and an open-sourcecloud. There has been an average traffic flow every five minutes to be displayed in the cloud platform. This method can bevery much cost-effective with less power consumption and improved accuracy. Hence, the proposed IoT-based techniquehas provided the traffic flow data, and this data shall further be used for traffic predictions using machine learningalgorithms
