Abstract

Every developing and emerging country is working to make cities that are smart, modern, citizen-friendly, and environmentally friendly. The impact of smart cities on future developments is significant. Roadways are essential for economic progress and the development of our future cities. Roadways systems are continuously changing due to maintenance or accidents. At the moment, the key concern is ensuring the safety of pedestrians and automobiles. Despite of many technological advancements on the road, safety has not received the same level of attention. When it comes to road safety, there are numerous things we can do to improve the driving experience. This paper proposes a strategy where in an arm barrier is used to blocks the way for vehicles at the junction when the traffic signal is red and allows the vehicles to pass when traffic signal turns green thereby providing safety to pedestrians while crossing the road. At the curved roads, infrared sensors are utilized to detect the vehicle and provide a prior intimation to the driver if there is a vehicle heading in opposite curve through LCD display which helps in preventing accidents. Collection of energy from roadways utilizing piezo-electric substance. The movement of vehicles on speed breaker can be effectively utilized to generate electricity.
