Abstract

The modern transportation has rapidly transformed due to the implication of electronics and communication systems into the Transportation infrastructure. This city of Hyderabad is growing at a very rapid pace into a Metropolis but is lagging behind in the efficient transportation facilities. The reason behind this lag is that the transportation techniques and methodologies are outdated. The best way to revive the transport network in this city is to upgrade it using Intelligent Transportation Systems. This concept being a wide variety concept, involves a number of parameters and application is case specific. The traffic in India is mixed traffic involving all kinds of vehicles ranging from a bicycle to a semi-trailer utilizing the same portion of the road. This has been the main cause for severe traffic congestion and the recently increased number of road accidents all over the country. Keeping this facts in view, the current paper discusses the implication of ITS and latest urban transportation technologies in relation with the Capacity of the roads and the Road accidents that have occurred in the city. A careful study of the road capacity is conducted to understand the exact reason of road congestion in the city, parallel to which the road accidents data is also collected and analyzed for the cause of the accidents. Once, the reasons are identified, ITS and urban transport technologies have been suggested to mitigate the ill effects and improve the transportation facilities.
