8. An Intelligent Traffic Congestion Management System using RFID

Traffic congestions in metropolitan areas have developed to a major problem in many countries all over the world. They have a negative impact on the economy, the environment and the overall quality of life. The purpose of this project is to explore the use of RFID technology to manage traffic congestions and to reduce the negative impact on the economy. RFID devices would give the opportunity to monitor the traffic in real-time and to gather valuable information about the development and the sources of congestions. Bottlenecks could be detected early. Behaviour of inner-city traffic could be analyzed and the infrastructure could be aligned based on this information. Furthermore, drivers could be warned early about possible congestions and alternative routes could be suggested.

The objective of this project is to design, develop and implement in a pilot scale a RFID-based framework for intelligent traffic congestion management system through:

* Detection of traffic congestion and bottlenecks

* Broadcasting of local congestion information to the electronic signage at the relevant crossing for re-routing / re-direction of vehicular traffic

The Intelligent Traffic Congestion Management System using RFID was developed and field tested in a pilot scale by IIM Calcutta.
