Traffic Detection System is an Android application that aims at determining the behavior of traffic in a particular location.
It calculates the speed of the vehicle and the level of congestion or the amount of traffic is determined on the basis of the values of sensors. If any such obstruct found, then the driver is provided an option to send messages regarding high traffic to his/her friends. After a distinct number of repeated low speed and breaks, the location of the vehicle (latitude and longitude) send to a pre-specified contact (selected in case of traffic congestion) through an SMS. This application uses the features of the Global positioning system. The Latitude, as well as the longitude of the location where traffic jams are formed, is sent to the friends of the user.
The Goggle map of the location also sends to the friends. It uses the SMS Manager a functionality of Android. The friends receiving the messages will thereby avoid taking the congested route and hence the level of traffic on the congested road will decrease, and the friends will reach the destination in comparatively less time.
The primary working principle of our app is Global Positioning System (GPS).
It checks the latitude and longitude of the place and pinpoints the location.
Any change in the value of latitude and longitude will measure the distance covered in a certain time interval, and thus we will calculate speed.
The calculated speed will be displayed and compared with the standard value.
If the speed is consistently low, then message will be displayed, and SMS will be sent to particular contact.
