NESTEC 2023 PAPER: Design And Implementation Of A Smart Traffic Management System Using IoT

ABSTRACT

In an era where urbanization accelerates relentlessly, the roads of our modern cities are with increasing congestion and inefficiency. As the world progresses, the need for intelligent solutions to untangle the knots of traffic has become an imperative echoed across metropolises. This paper, therefore, focuses on the design, implementation, and evaluation of a Smart Traffic Management System using the Internet of Things.  Think about roads that could sense how many cars are on them, and therefore adjust the timings of traffic lights accordingly to balance traffic flow. By leveraging IoT and advanced traffic management techniques, this proposed Smart Traffic Management System holds the promise of revolutionizing urban mobility, fostering efficiency, sustainability, and livability in cities.

  1. This is well detailed for a creative way to manage our system in Nigeria. However, with the future of Artificial Intelligence (AI) on a IoT-based Smart Traffic Management System in the country, how can this intelligent system of managing our traffic enhance the manufacture and production of electric cars that would run on sustainable energy system on our roads in Nigeria. .

    1. Thanks for this.
      It is no gainsaying that the distance at which an electric car can travel is dependent on the level of power in the battery.
      Therefore, unless the traffic moves so fast, the battery of an electric vehicle can drop dead at the middle of the road.
      This paper proposes a smart-traffic management system that reduces the time of travel of vehicles on Nigerian roads. I believe this will enhance the manufacture of electric vehicles and other cars that are primarily designed to be fast.

    2. Thanks, Joshua.

      Well, in regions with adequate sunlight (Northern Nigeria), solar panels can be integrated to harness solar energy, ensuring a sustainable power source for IoT devices. In other regions, we can consider the use of batteries. Also, we can ensure that the selected types of IoT hardwares are designed for low power consumption.
      Furthermore, IoT devices are programmed to operate in low-power sleep modes when not actively transmitting data or sensing traffic conditions, like in the middle of the night. This conserves power while ensuring readiness for action.

  29. I applaud the content of your paper.

    My question is: in the case of an emergency vehicle carrying patients, is there a mechanism the system will use to detect an emergency case and prioritize allowing such a vehicle to move?

    0

    0
    1. Thank you.

      Actually, while the system efficiently manages traffic flow, there is a recognized weakness in prioritizing emergency vehicles. I included it in my SWOT analysis. The system does not incorporate a specific mechanism for the detection of emergency cases.
      However, this paper serves as a foundation for further improvements.

      To address this limitation, future research and development could focus on the integration of advanced technologies, including intelligent sensors. These enhancements would enable the system to detect emergency vehicles and trigger a swift response to prioritize their movement through the traffic network.
      No doubt, the integration of mechanisms to detect and prioritize emergency cases is a valuable area for future exploration.
