When traffic demand is high, the interaction between vehicles slows the speed of the traffic stream, this results in congestion .Technology & resources P11Ethical issues P11Bibliography P12

Traffic congestion can lead to drivers becoming frustrated and being involved inroad rage .Yahoo! Traffic and Traffic.com are traffic information services that only provide current information about traffic conditions in a specific area or region. Current traffic information is still important and essential, but these reports sometimes tend to be partial or incomplete, because their sources most of the time fails to report the current traffic conditions. As a consequence, the user cannot assume that there is no heavy traffic in a given location because that location was not reported by these services.Abstract extensionNowadays, the users are only able to view and access past info statistics however notpresent traffic or weather information. The system I will be offering will allow users to look at the present information for traffic and weather reports. This could be helpful when viewing data on a selected route, therefore users will be able to determine the present conditions.I don’t know in what way it would be helpful to drivers to view historic reports of traffic. This description provides suggestions, and I should interview drivers to explore with different ways to process with traffic info. There also are some issues regarding current user interfaces, a way to style the system so it is quickly and safely useable from an integral and touch screen while driving on a full or jammed road. Studying traffic statistics is fascinating in its claim. My aim is to design a system to help in studying traffic related figures from incidents and other causes of congestion.IntroductionCongestion is costly for people who live in our city regions too, who find themselves stuck in traffic when they should be at work or simply frustrated at the time wasted in trying to get from point A to B .Trafficonroads are made up ofvehicles,cars,busesand othermeans of transports, either singly or together, while using the public way for purposes of travel.Traffic lawsare thelawswhich govern traffic and regulate vehicles,
Page 4 of 12whilerules of the roadare both the laws and theinformal rulesthat may have developed over time to facilitate the orderly and timely flow of traffic.Traffic could also potentially slow into congestion and become disrupted from reasons such as road works, or collisions. To prevent those kinds of events, organisations usually produce better combinations of travel safety and efficiency; they also have well established priorities such as right of way, lanes, and traffic control atjunctions. ObjectivesThe aim of the project will be to deliver and provide useful information and data about traffic in a specific geographical area in the U.K based on the history of present-day weather, the time of the day and patterns of flowing traffic. This information and data could then be used by road users (car drivers and motorcycle riders) which could allow them to plan their journey ahead, and choose the best time and alternative routes for their convenience at a chosen andspecified time.The idea is to analyse historic traffic information collected over a period of time tohighlight locations which appear most frequently in the traffic advisories and thus are likely to be subject to heavy traffic conditions even if they do not appear in the current traffic suggested. Here are specific examples of services that could be offered in the system:-A traffic map which analyses traffic history across a specific area, dependingon the choice of the day or days of the week, weather conditions, and severity of incidents,-Traffic pattern history along a route between two end points, depending of the time of the day and weather conditions,If users preferred route could potentially suffer from heavy traffic for the specifiedtravel period, the website traffic system could:-Allow the user to be offered an alternative diversion route,-Recommend an alternative time to travel along a current route.Traffic pattern is a function that describes the number of reported traffic incidentsdepending on weather conditions and the time of day.
