Full Project Report On Intelligent Transportation System
Technology has been driving the developments in the realm of transportation from the times of Industrial Revolution to the present day Digital Revolution. Until the 20th century, technology in transportation was focused on two objectives-
i. Meeting the demand of faster mobility by different modes and
ii. Building capacity and expanding network facilities to accommodate growing traffic needs.
The constraint on the available space, growing vehicle population and number of trips led to serve traffic congestion, resulting in environmental degradation. In 2000 alone, traffic congestion cost motorists a staggering $67.5 billion in wasted time in 75 large urban areas of USA. This situation has resulted in innovative shift of infrastructure management through advanced technologies, to ensure efficient and environment friendly user services. Development of vehicle detection and information technologies on top of communication technologies has offered ways to collect the real time traffic data for processing at a central facility. Processed information is used for various management purposes such as control, traveler information, incident detection and response. ITS have thus addressed the need for working towards regionally integrated transportation systems.
