M-Traffic - A Traffic Information and Monitoring System for Mobile Devices

Teresa Romão, Luís Rato, Pedro Fernandes, Nuno Alexandre, Antão Almada, Nuno Capeta

Abstract

This paper presents Mobile Traffic (M-Traffic), a multiplatform online traffic information system, which provides real time traffic information based on image processing, sensor’s data and traveller behaviour models. In order to estimate route delay and feed the optimal routing algorithm a traffic microscopic simulation model is developed and simulation results are presented. This mobile information service ubiquitously provides users with traffic information regarding their needs and preferences, according to an alert system, which allows a personalised pre-definition of warning messages.
