Optimization of traffic congestion at signalized points in Agartala: A smart city project of North-East IndiaAuthor(s):
Dr. Goutam Saha and Ratul ChakrabortyAbstract:
A smart city is one that uses technology for optimal utilization of resources to make it efficient, sustainable and people-oriented. Efficient traffic management system is a first and foremost parameter of a smart city. Vehicular traffic congestion is a severe problem in many major cities across the world and it has become a nightmare for the commuters in this city also. Traffic congestion is a growing problem in many metropolitan cities as it increases travel time, air pollution, carbon-di-oxide (CO2) emissions and fuel use because vehicles cannot run smoothly. Inadequate infrastructure, flexibility in law enforcement and poor traffic management has leads to traffic congestion. One of the major problems with Indian cities is that the existing infrastructure cannot be expanded as per requirements in most cases, and thus the options available are implementation of better management and strict law enforcement.
In an aim to upgrade traffic management system, the Government of Tripura has taken the decision to improve some intersection points of Agartala with the help of electronic traffic signal system. This paper seeks to analyze the vehicular traffic flow and explore how vehicular traffic congestion could be minimized using mathematical models in order to reduce the delays on roads in these electronic signalized points of Agartala city.
