A Simulation Model for Community based Real Time Traffic Information Sharing in Urban Areas via VANET

P. Ponveni and Dr.J. Visumathi

Mobility in an urban region stimulates traffic congestion, energy consumption, etc., which causes major issues in defined administrative zones. Urban process computing aims to tackle such issues by using heterogeneous data. The zones connected by road networks are fixed, but traffic flows are defined as dynamic. The main aspect of this work is to measure the quality data index of the traffic available in geographical locations for defined locations. This model considers human mobility as time variant stochastic around several fixed points. The study has been limited to a relatively small number of users and covering small geographic areas from location based social networks. This work seeks to solve the real time traffic information issues by VANET simulation using NS2. The existing VANET network collects average waiting time of the vehicle, but the proposed simulation calculates the optimized average waiting time at road junctions or at road segments.
