IoT Enabled Real Time Traffic Management System
In this current generation of emerging technologies, data plays a vital role in every field of work. Despite tremendous advancements still the signals are being controlled manually by personnel in the hub. Especially in downtown areas, people face traffic congestion. This paper proposes an IoT based traffic management solution to enhance traffic-related issues and to guide the ambulance driver to find the signal status and to choose the path where traffic flow can be manipulated and traffic violations can be identified by onsite traffic officers and controlled over the internet. It depicts a framework where a couple of sensors like IR sensor and RFID interfaced with node MCU to work based on the principles of IoT. By deploying it normal cities can be transformed into smart cities by exploiting ICT. The paradigm of IoT can play a vital role in automating things. Moreover a technique of measuring the traffic density is also considered for the smooth movement of vehicles. The scheme proposed is more general and can be implemented in any metropolitan city with greater ease.
