This project has two sub-systems-Intelligent Traffic Management and Intelligent Transport Management.Traffic management is to control traffic through adaptive systems which includes configuration of traffic signal at each of the junction along with development of signal control plan for individual operations, coordinated signal plan for the junction in sync with the area wide signal plan for different operating conditions.Transport Management refers to management of transport(buses) infrastructure by developing an electronic ticketing system,monitoring vehicular movement,Passenger Information System,fleet management system etc.
Development can have a significant impact on the local and strategic road network, highway safety and the environment. Population growth, particularly in Chennai City, is fueling both development & demand for transport and placing an increasing burden on the existing transport network. If we are to meet the needs of our communities both now and in the future we need to provide smart, integrated & sustainable traffic and transport solutions. Thus created the project, “Intelligent Traffic Management System”.
This project has two sub-systems- Intelligent Traffic Management and Intelligent Transport Management, Intelligent Traffic Management. The main objective of this project is to maximize the traffic flow by reducing the average queue lengths and average wait times using dynamic traffic flow data read from Adaptive Traffic Control System.
Implementation of Intelligent Traffic Management System:
The main objective of this project aims to achieve traffic efficiency by minimizing traffic problems. It enriches users with prior information about traffic, local convenience real-time running information, seat availability etc. which reduces travel time of commuters as well as enhances their safety and comfort. Transport Management has been envisaged for the whole of Metropolitan Transport Corporation’s fleet and depots in a phased manner.
