Abstract

Currently, few traffic management departments offer traffic monitoring services in real time due to the high cost of such car traffic monitoring system. Aim of the paper is the one of proposing a low cost system based on the GPS signals coming from the smart phones of the drivers to build a colored traffic map and to pass such traffic information to a minimum path finder software resident on a mobility information system or on the user mobile to find better paths to destination. Also, the proposed system may support a decision support system resident on the driver mobile to better plan the commuter paths as well as the user commerce activities in the urban area.
