One of the major aspects that urbanization was witnessed was the rapid explosion in terms of the number of vehicles that have been on the roads in the recent past. As the financial capacities of man increased, more and more people started owning their own vehicles. This phenomenon when taking place in a massive scale leads to problems as congestion and other traffic related issues. India has also seen a similar trend in the rapid growth of traffic in the past two decades. Intersection or Junction Study was aimed at estimating the current traffic scenario prevailing at the main Junctions like town hall circle, market circle and Shankar mutt circle, Tumkur City. This is facilitated by means of surveys which are conducted for the junction in consideration. Based on the survey conducted, work is done in analysing the performance characteristics of the junction with respect to its present capacity, the maximum limits of capacities and also on possible improvements to the traffic situation prevailing in the Junction. Road networks contribution to smart city City transportation is an important pillar for quality of life of citizens in a city. Currently, in most of the cities, public and private road transportation are the key mode of commuting and logistics. Some large and mega cities have metro and local train network as the backbone transportation mode. Lack of quality and safe public transportation, inadequate capacity of public transportation, road safety concerns, overcrowded road network, poor traffic management, parking issues, theft, poor road conditions, lack of modal options (including pedestrian walkways) remain the key issues in most of the cities. Most cities also lack the integrated transportation plans leading to huge demand-supply gap and poor transportation network. For transport operators, huge demand-supply gap, under recovery and poor asset management remain the key issues. Modern vehicles equipped with driver assistance systems can “feel” (by sensors), “see” (by cameras) and – in future – “speak” (by communication systems). The new technology of cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems and Services (C-ITS) enables communication between vehicles and traffic infrastructure. It is based on the principle that cooperative parties (ITS stations, i.e. in vehicles, road side units) exchange information among each other in terms of standardised message sets. The receiving ITS station analyses the incoming data and makes use of them, resulting in a self-organisation principle on local level. Services and applications being subject to competition between companies cover up-to-date traffic information, improved road safety by avoiding accidents and reducing injury severity, increased efficiency by supporting a consistent traffic flow, foresighted driving and enhanced driving comfort. By involving public transport, bicyclists and pedestrians, intermodal and environmental capabilities, autonomous driving and further functions will be addressed in a second step when C-ITS has reached a sufficient market penetration.
