The Srinagar Municipal Corporation (SMC),under AMRUT (Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation) scheme of Govt of India,intended to install Intelligent Electronic Traffic Signal System with Operations & Monitoring of the traffic lights from a centralized Control room at 33 locations, with capability for further expansion and upgradation.Srinagar Municipal Corporation(SMC) wanted to modernize the traffic management and to integrate all 33 Adaptive Junctions with centralized ATCS control room. This has helped them to operate and monitor these junctions remotely, using camera-based Vehicle Detection Sensor technology and change the signal light timings on real time basis. The ITMS Project of Srinagar Municipal Corporation is more efficient, real time based and hence requires less waiting time for the motorists. The fast response time of Srinagar ITMS and excellent operations during emergency situations thus increases the traffic handling capacity of roads with very little or no jamming on the road.
Srinagar ITMS project has transformed the conventional FIXED time signaling System on city roads into a real-time state-of-the-art Control Room based Adaptive Traffic Control System.
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
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.
