Reducing Traffic Challenge Using A Smart Traffic Lighting System
As the Crystal City corridor continues to grow and thrive, the demands on the city’s transportation system continue to grow as well. Residents and commuters of Crystal City experience traffic challenges daily. Modern economic structures are shaped by automobile-oriented urban development (Kumar, Singh, Singh, & Baghel, 2018). Deteriorating urban air quality is a caused by the congestion; thus, quality of urban living is directly impacted (Gulia, 2015). To define congestion and mitigation measures, traffic congestions thresholds need to be determined. Measures will need to be implemented to manage these challenges and growth with technology to enhance and optimize the transportation systems throughout the Crystal City corridor. The focus of capstone paper is aimed at understanding the recurring congestion, its measurement and using the scalable urban traffic control systems (SurTrac) as mitigation. Research on this challenge exposes some attention-grabbing insights.
