We express our sincere gratitude towards our guide Mr. Timir A. Chokshi for his constant help, encouragement, suggestion and inspiration throughout the design engineering work. Without his invaluable advice, suggestion and assistance it would not have been possible for us to complete this work.

We wish to thank the Civil Engineering Department of LJ INSTITUTE OF ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY, for their sympathetic co-operation. My sincere thanks to all the authors whose literature we have used as a reference of our work. We are very thankful to our classmates, our family, our friends and our classmates who are supported throughout the subject.

Violation of rules (traffic rules) is the major problem in our country but as you look in other countries (like Europe, some exceptional countries in Asia like the china and the japan) you will also find out that they have no problem like this one. Our main ambition behind this project namely ITS (which is stand for Intelligent Transport System) is to improve the existing transport system by introducing “smart speed bump” and “e-toll payment system”. Though stop line has provided on each and every portion of cross road/intersection before the zebra crossing, but most of people easily just cross this stop line, so this one isn’t making any sense, until someone isn’t start to stop before the stop line. Therefore, to stop these loops of our public we introduced a smart speed bump which comprises a Radar unit to detect the arrival vehicle’s speed and a control unit to connect the radar to the smart speed bump which has risen if the user does not follow the predetermined speed when he/she will enter the range of radar.
Next one is e-payment,
So why we need this system? The intention behind this solution is traditional toll system makes a user to stand in a row with his vehicle which produced a congested area as well time consuming and sometimes for host, too. It makes easy toll payment via user’s request to apparatus in which the microprocessor (which is to interpret the user’s identity and message) and to perform different tasks. Also, this system provide other things like which road has less traffic, your journey time, suggested maps, weather conditions, and your toll and your toll payment bill, etc. in order to give comfort, flexibility and safety to users.

Chapter 1: Introduction
Importance of Traffic Engineering: Road traffic has been growing a very rapid rate in India during the past three decades. The number of motor vehicles has been growing at a rate around 10 per cent per annum. The growth rate of various vehicle classes has been as under,
Cars 7-10 per cent
Buses 5-10 per cent
Trucks 6-15 per cent
Two – wheelers 15-17 per cent
Table 1.1
As a result of the steep growth of motor vehicles population, the traffic on the roads has been increasing, both in terms of volume and intensity. The investment on roads have not kept pace with the growth of traffic, with the result there is severe congestion on the roads. Speeds are low and vehicle operating costs are high. Accident rate is usually high.

Therefore, traffic engineering measures provide a valuable tool to understand the problems and evolve suitable measures to overcome the deficiencies.

Vehicle Characteristics: The other vehicle characteristics that are of concern to the traffic engineer are:
Dimensions ; weight
Turning capability
Braking system
Acceleration ; deacceleration
Vehicle lightning system
Features of the vehicle body
Tyres, etc.

Methods available for traffic counts: The methods available for traffic counts are listed below:
Manual methods
Mechanical methods
Combination of manual and mechanical methods
Automatic devices
Moving observer method
Photographic method
1.4 Types of counts:
Here we taken short term counts as per suggestion by our mentor. The purpose or use you can say that like: To determine the flow or traffic in the peak hour. Used in measuring the saturation flow at signalised intersections. Used in intersections during the morning and evening peak hours,
Traffic survey: We done the traffic survey of the Shivranjani intersection with aim of to know the basic traffic flow at different directions and here there results which are shown in tabular form. (Converted in PCU/hr).

3. People: People working side by the road for their routine life and workers sweep the
road for clean and safety of people.

4. Traffic police: Traffic police control the traffic flow by guiding through signals at

3.2 Happy & Sad Story: Happy stories are indicating the advantages of Intelligent
Transport System (ITS) like during heavy traffic the people do not follow the traffic
Rules and accident is happened at intersection, thus we gave this project to slow down
Moving vehicle with high speed and to improve the mobility and easily accessibility.

While in other hand the sad stories are disadvantages of this ITS like the
moving vehicle with high speed can cause damage to the smart speed
bump and causes greater inconvenience to the drivers. Maintenance cost
increases with damage.
