An Adaptive Service Platform for Traffic Management and Surveillance

Brahmananda Sapkota, Marten van Sinderen

Abstract

The increasing number of road vehicles has given rise to increasingly adverse consequences in the society. Some of the major concerns that arise due to such an increase in road vehicles are: safety of the people using the road, cost and efficiency of the traffic management and the environmental footprint in terms of, e.g., air quality, acidification, climate change and noise pollution. Moreover, the increased road traffic, if not managed properly leads to severe congestion resulting into increased delay for people and goods. We argue that we can alleviate these problems when using an ICT-based service platform that supports localized monitoring and management of traffic and environmental information collected from various information sources such as sensors, surveillance camera, weather station, etc. Such information should be made available through services in order to increase reusability, loose coupling and management of different information and their analysis. In this paper, we discuss different functionalities that can be or even should be supported by the service platform and provide an architecture, following the service-oriented architecture principles, of such a platform.
