Abstract

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have attracted wide interests from both academic and industrial communities due to their diversity of applications. In this paper, we describe the design and implementation of energy-efficient protocols that can be used to improve traffic safety using WSN. Based on these protocols, we implement an intelligent traffic management system. Low-cost wireless sensor nodes are deployed on the roadbed and work collaboratively to detect potential collisions on the road. Experiments have been performed on this system and the results demonstrate the effectiveness of our protocols.
