Have you ever wondered how we know real-time traffic data❓
Where did that information come from❓
Let's discuss various ideas on how to use the built-in sensors available on off-the-shelf mobile devices for sensing and acquiring traffic information in:
CMKL Special Talk 2022 Episode 11 with the topic “𝐌𝐨𝐛𝐢𝐥𝐞 𝐒𝐞𝐧𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐀𝐩𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐚𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐬 𝐭𝐨 𝐀𝐜𝐪𝐮𝐢𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐓𝐫𝐚𝐟𝐟𝐢𝐜 𝐈𝐧𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐦𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧”.
Traffic information is essential for traffic control, route planning, and policy-making. Real-time traffic information such as average speed, vehicle density, and flow rate helps motorists choose a route wisely. Modern smartphones are equipped with a variety of sensors such as global positioning system (GPS) receivers, accelerometers, gyroscopes, cameras, and microphones. These sensors may be exploited to collect real-time traffic data.
