Abstract

With the very fast growing technology in wireless, advancement in hardware and the dramatically falling cost of mobile computing devices such as PDA, handheld device, People nowadays can have a personal device that fits in their hand but has computing power as a desktop did few years ago. The same device now is able to communicate over a wireless network and view office document at the same time. The combination of size, power and flexibility makes the personal devices increasingly appear in many aspects of life. In this proposal, we focus on a simple yet useful application of mobile devices and wireless capabilities. The application can help commuters in traffic system to find an optimal route based on video camera surveillance information. This surveillance information is made available to the user through his/her handheld devices. As an example, suppose we have installed several cameras along the expressway. If commuters can access to these cameras, they can observe the situation currently happening along the way, and decide which path would be the most effective to avoid the traffic congestion. This application will eventually improve the effectiveness of current traffic system since it will help to reduce traffic congestions.
