Indo-Japan joint research programme on severe traffic congestion launched in Hyd

Hyderabad, May 29 (UNI) India-Japan Joint research programme was launched here on Wednesday to create innovation solution for severe traffic congestion.
The launch of the field-test bed system of the joint research project “Multi Modal Smart Transportation (M2Smart)” was held at Indian Institute of Technology, Hyderabad (IIT-H) here on Tuesday.
This joint research project has been designed collaboratively by Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) and Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) as a scheme of “Science Technology Partnership for Sustainable Development (SATREPS)”.
It has been jointly undertaken by IIT-H, Nagoya Electric works Co Ltd, Nihon University and Tokyo Institute of Technology.
The aim of this joint research project is to establish a reliable and common approach for grasping the traffic situation in cities by building a system that effectively utilises mobile devices, traffic sensing, big-data analysis and network technology.
Speaking on the occasion, JICA India Chief Representative Mr Katsuo Matsumoto, said, “Enhancing the academia - Industry network between Japan and India is one of the most important element for both countries’ long term benefit.
In this connection, JICA has been engaging in various initiatives with IIT-H, and IIT-H has become a very crucial platform for both countries, Matsuo said this joint research project is also one of the important joint projects between IIT-H and Japanese academia and industries, and is planned to last until March 2022.
It is hoped that by utilizing the field test bed system launched today, research teams of Japan and India will continue to work together to create reliable approach for grasping the traffic situation in the cities in India, which would contribute to the formation of suitable urban transportation system and facilitation of a modal shift, said Katsuo .
For the traffic flow analysis of this joint research project, the project team will implement deep learning AI recognition architecture, driving behaviour sensing, environment gas monitoring .
The traffic monitoring will be implemented not only at NH-65 in Hyderabad but also in Ahmedabad by joint collaboration with Ahmedabad city where project team will install traffic monitoring camera at several junctions.
The project team will be able to compare traffic condition of these two cities. The project team will also utilise project analysis to generate hand-book for low carbon urban transportation that would be beneficial for the consideration of suitable urban transportation system in India, he said.
JICA has been extending integrated support to IIT-H through ODA (Official Development Assistance) loan of 23,035 million Japanese yen (over INR 1,300 Crore) for IIT-H campus development.
