Driving on roads nowadays has a lot of
limitations. Traffic congestion is increasingly happening
especially at the urban areas because of the increasing
population & urbanization. Accordingly, the traffic flow is
not being run properly (vehicles delay & traffic congestion)
and reduces the throughput at the intersections. In this
paper, We suggest a system architecture serving as
Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) to overcome the
road limitation resultants. The proposed system design,
Initially, has five main devices which would co-operate
together to provide safety, assistance, and comfort for the
drivers. By applying this system on roads, researcher
would have an opportunity to create more protocols and
algorithms improving traffic flow, safety, and comfort of
driving. A chosen application (Improving intersection
traffic flow) results were obtained from simulation studies,
are compared with our system to show the significance or
the need for the proposed system and its protocol's
control actions and strategies.
