I am currently trying to create an android application that will actively change the traffic light signal based on the current traffic.
The application is just a mock up and will not affect the real world, but I need to develop the application in android.
I have tried Google map API, but apparently they have no “Traffic signal” as an option.
OSM has traffic signal, but it still does not show the Traffic “Signal” (as in, whether its currently yellow or green or red).
I am really new to programming and I have so many questions to asks, but I need to know first whether adding a tag to a traffic signal such as “traffic_signal_colour = red” is possible. (It doesn’t have to be global, I just need it in my own application.
I am also really confused by the OSM Api, I managed to implemented maps in my map, but there is no routing services and I don’t know which routing service I should used, like ASMAND or ASMdroid? I am still really confused by these terms.
I really need some helps here.
Thank you for any answer.
Note: This is my project synopsis and I hope someone can give me some ideas…
To research design and develop a complete scaled down working system for traffic light signal management based on mobile navigation data.
The system should take into consideration as a minimum the following scope i)Analyse travelers route destination
ii)Forecast expected traffic on a route and propose diversion
iii)Signal timing according to traffic from each direction destination.
The system should be able to communicate with navigation app data GPS technology.
