Chennai, May 23 (UNI) A group of four students from Velammal Engineering College have invented a series of traffic automation tools to improve the safety and flexibility at traffic signals.
'Smart Traffic,' a traffic automation procedure using radio frequency identification technology otherwise called as RFID, has six components --'Optimum Traffic,' 'Emergency Vehicle Guiding System,' 'Automatic Zone Detection,' 'Automatic Toll Collection,' and 'Theft Control.' Talking to newspersons here today, students S Archana, G Prasad, G Rajarajeswari and S Saravanan explained that their new products will make the dynamic or static analysis of automotive vehicle technologies possible.
'Optimum Traffic,' an electronic product fitted at the traffic junction area, could synchronise the traffic without human intervention and will regulate the traffic signal according to the number of vehicles in the junction, they said.
Explaining about 'Emergency Vehicle Guiding System,' they said this device will detect any emergency vehicle, including Ambulance or VIP convoys, and operate the signals accordingly.
On the 'Automatic Zone Detection,' they said the device will be fitted in a vehicle, which automatically reduces the speed and horn sound especially in the zones where schools and hospitals were located.
They said 'Automatic Toll Collection,' was also a device which can identify the vehicle at the toll collection office. This device will also help automatic tolling by crediting/ debiting the toll amount from the vechicle owner's bank account.
The students said 'Theft Control' will be fitted in any vehicle, that will detect the driver's identity. If anyone makes an attempt to start the car, the device would stop the engine immediately.
