The project researches the issues for allowing Australian Road Traffic Authorities to automatically capture road
traffic data, forecast traffic flows and smartly route traffic flows to avoid congestion on road networks. This will lead
to several benefits, such as (a) reducing traffic congestion, shorten travel time and lower pollution, (b) better
utilization of existing road infrastructure by diffusing traffic to alternate routes, (c) provide economic benefit by
allowing one to delay infrastructure expansion, (d) monitoring of aberrant behaviour by road users to ensure a safer
road environment, and (e) improved flexibility in deployment of the Wireless Sensor Network to meet the needs of
the road authorities and community.
