Abstract

In this study, a proposed intelligent traffic management system is presented making use of the wireless sensor network for improving traffic flow.  By making use of the clustering algorithm, VANET environment is utilized for the proposed system. The components of the proposed system include sensor node hardware, vehicle detection system through magnetometer, and UDP protocol for communication between the nodes. The intersection control agent receives the information about the vehicles and by making use of its algorithm, it dynamically changes the traffic light timings. By making use of the greedy algorithm, the system can be enhanced to a wider area by connecting multiple intersections.
