By 2020, there will be more than 24 billion smart devices connected in Internet of Things (IOT). Tremendously augmented motorization, population and urbanization has not only brought us many amenities but also has increased traffic congestion to its limits. In this research we used IOT to design an efficient and congestion free Intelligent Transport System (ITS). A lot of research is done to either improve or change any one aspect of ITS at one time. This research demonstrates every aspect or features of an efficient ITS. The purpose of this research is to provide developing countries a detailed and easy to follow ITS architecture, so that they can create an ITS for their populace. For the sake of easy understanding and reading we divided this research into few articles.
Previously we have discussed Internet Of Things: Smart Ubiquitous Architecture of Intelligent Transport System and Ubiquitous Architechture Of ITS in detail. As you read in Ubiquitous Architechture Of ITS about the Smart DEI Model of ITS and know that it depends on three things Smart Design, Smart Environment and Smart Interaction. This article will explain Smart Environment and Smart Interaction in detail.
In this ITS, there could be only two smart environment components which were sensors and controller. The sensors come under the static devices which could be embedded on the bus or train stop. These sensors could sense monitor the speed, location and arrival time of the bus / train. Similarly, the controller could be a static device, embedded on the bus / train stop forwarding this data to the control room which could be fixed on the bus.
This controller could keep an eye on the real-time traffic data and when something goes beyond the accepted limits, it would automatically report to the control system. In other words, in this system, controllers would adapt control according to the input to them. This work flow is already shown in Fig.2. In this system, the bus driver would tag or annotate the locations which could cause delay in schedule or road blocks etc.
Depending on the certain input and output or requirements, the system could perform different kinds of smart interaction. This ITS system integration mostly depends on the development, integration and interaction of Android Operating System application development, Websites development and
installation of devices on the bus / train stops.

This research concludes by proposing a system which could determine location, route, travel time, real time vehicle arrival time, tag locations which can cause delay in schedules, re-route and re-schedule the system, answer customer query about transport capacity, cater to delays with conflicting goals such as to pick extra customers and integration of routes for different types of modes. The main purpose of this research was to provide very detailed ITS architecture and design to everyone, so that developing countries may adapt this system and could provide a congestion free and efficient ITS to their people. While there is an advantage from the implementation of ITS, there are however many opportunities to continue scrutiny, research work and application. The next goal in this research is to do simulation of this ITS, standardise the ITS and identify most suitable technology and infrastructure to increase the efficiency of system exponentially.
