CoSiCoSt is an Adaptive Traffic Control System (ATCS) developed by Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (CDAC)
Adaptive Traffic Control Systems respond to changes in traffic patterns in real-time
Continuously detect vehicular traffic volume, compute "optimal" signal timings based on this detected volume and simultaneously implement them at the traffic junction
Results in reduced delays, shorter queues and decreased travel times
The major benefits of CoSiCoSt based ATCS System are -
Reduction in Signal Cycle Time – from 180 seconds to 120 seconds average
Improvement in Vehicle Speed – about 10% increase in traffic speed
Reduction of stoppage delay on the network – about 17%
Energy savings – 100%, as the entire system is solar based.
