Analysis of vehicle speed limit and air pollution load for identifying road conditions in India: An empirical study for smart city

Abstract

The recent major studies reveal that the transportation system of any country must focus on the road conditions for effective traffic management. The several parameters can be considered to identify the road conditions such as types of vehicles, speed limit on different roads, traffic and transport rules etc. The paper discusses about the two major and important concerns on the Indian roads scenario i.e. vehicle speed and vehicle emitted pollutants. Since there are different types of vehicles running on the road and each vehicle has its own pollutants emission status, there is a necessity to perform analysis to define the road conditions in the major cities or states of India. To perform the analysis the work has divided into four folds: 1. Identify vehicle types and speed regulations. 2. Identify the details of different pollutants 3. Identify the relationship between the type of vehicles and speed limits and 4. Identify the relationship between air pollutants and intensity of pollutants in different states. The secondary dataset of Indian roads scenario has been used and Two-way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) applied for the analysis of road conditions. The result shows that there is no significant relationship between type of vehicles and speed limits of different states and there is no significant relationship between the pollutants emitted and intensity of pollutants in different cities. The study is useful to suggest various techniques to improve the efficiency of transport system in India by implementing Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) which lead to address numerous challenges in the era of Smart Cities.
