Vehicular Traffic Indication Using Ad-Hoc Networks
Road congestion in big cities results in a huge waste of time and productivity for a lot of people. An easy way to
deal with this problem is by distributing traffic information to drivers, which in turn can decide to route around congested
areas. Such traffic information can be gathered byhaving single vehicles report their location, speed and travel time or
relying on static sensors placed at specific road locations (e.g., induction loops, counter).While the former approach has been
used, the latter hasn’t been tried and tested a lot in India, and, consequently, its potential is less understood. The appropriate
use of static sensors helps by giving accurate information. Small lanes and by-lanes are covered too because of the compact
architecture of the system.
