ADAPTIVE INTELLIGENT TRAFFIC CONTROL SYSTEMS FOR IMPROVING TRAFFIC QUALITY AND CONGESTION IN SMART CITIES
Abstract: A systematic review was undertaken to examine the solutions available for traffic congestion and associated problems in smart cities. Google Scholar and Google were used as search engines, leading to the final selection of 35 eligible papers for inclusion in this review, after a serious of screening based on definite criteria. Intelligent transport systems were found to be the most suitable solution to traffic congestion and associated problems in smart cities. Certain models and frameworks of smart cities include smart mobility and transport management systems. These can be approximated to intelligent transport systems. True intelligent transport systems are infrastructure-based or intelligent vehicle based or more preferably, a combination of both. The Internet of Things and cloud computing should be built into the system as they enable the operation of smart transport networks. Some methods of designing traffic control systems combining both Eulerian and Lagrangian approaches have been discussed for the possibility of using any of them to design a new automatic traffic monitoring and control system for smart cities. The practical implication of this research is that it can improve quality of life of people by minimizing traffic congestion. Limitations of this paper include this being a systematic review, availability of very few papers and not considering adaptive intelligent traffic control systems. Explanations for these limitations have been provided.
