Abstract—This paper describes the control strategies for synchronizing the movement of the vehicles on the highway which has a narrow road linked to it using radio communication. The sensors detect the vehicles on the roads and the highway control scheme uses the Radio Communication measurements to broadcast the position of the vehicles on the highway to the vehicles on the narrow road. The narrow road vehicle takes the action whether to increase or decrease its speed based on the information broadcasted to it. The entire method of controlling the speed of the vehicle is based on the sensing of the vehicles and calculation of time required for the vehicle to reach from one point to another. This management scheme prevents the accidents on highway intersection and cross-roads and possible collisions due to negligence of the driver. It also reduces the time delay for the narrow road vehicle while entering the highway. This paper describes the Radio Communication, discusses key issues in system design, and provides experimental results.
Index Terms—highway, cross-roads, collision, radio, synchronizing.
