The traffic in urban areas is mainly regularized by traffic lights, which may contribute to the unnecessary long waiting times for vehicles if not efficiently configured. Traffic Monitoring and Report System (TMRS) is a traffic analysis program that empowers the commuter to make better choices as he/she commutes [1]. Traffic monitoring system means a logical method for the gathering, study, summary, and maintenance of road traffic related data. Traffic reporting on the other hand is the near real-. India's population and its traffic are concentrated within its cities. The contrast between urban and rural India is far more pronounced than in most Western nations. The migration of rural population to urban areas in search of better job prospects has made cities densely populated. About 27 per cent the population live in urban areas.   This study reports the results of fatal road traffic fatal crash data from six mid-sized cities in India: Agra, Amritsar, Bhopal, Ludhiana, Vadodara, and Vishakhapatnam. Relative to total road fatalities, the percentage of vulnerable road user deaths in all six cities range between 84% and 93%, car occupant fatalities between 2% and 4%, and TST.

If we approach the situation with a mental model in which each Seattle commuter is assigned a specific route which her or she follows faithfully, the $74 million in improvements don't. The spread of unauthorised construction in our cities has assumed significant proportions. One such unauthorised colony is Aya Nagar, situated on the south-western edge of Delhi. The original Aya Nagar settlement was a village populated largely by ‘gujjjars’. The recent extension of the village is settled by migrants from all parts of the country, and the population is now over a hundred.

Urban traffic congestion is one of the most prevalent transport problems in large urban agglomerations. For the above developments, urban pollution becomes one of the most drastic issues. In addition to mitigating urban emission, storm water effluence, noise pollution, controlling wastes, and managing the consumption of non-renewable resources. Urban Traffic Management. Over the years, a wide variety of traffic management systems have been developed for urban traffic control. Some of the more common methods are shown in the display box below. Among them, computerised traffic signal control, also known as Urban Traffic Control (UTC), has become the norm for large towns and cities. Mixed traffic is the typical characteristic of urban traffic in China. Especially on the crosswalks at signalized intersection, mixed traffic flow is large, traffic conflicts happen frequently. Emphasizing technical and geometrical issues the potential and limits of SAR are addressed in focussed case studies, for example, the detection of buildings and roads, traffic monitoring, surface deformation monitoring, and urban change. These studies can be sorted into two groups: the mapping of the current urban state and the monitoring of.
