Smart Transportation Group

Mission
Smart Transportation involve an amalgamation of transportation systems, traffic control systems, traffic safety systems and other automated applications related to transportation technology. Traffic control applications include toll collections, congestion control and on-board multimedia/information systems. Traffic safety applications include automatic speed control, lane changing and merging, collision warning, blind spot warning and dynamic route changers. Automobile companies have been aggressively looking for solutions such as driver-less cars, and to begin with system assisted driving.

The Smart Transportation Group is focused on the research and development of automobiles, which employ automobile-to-automobile communication, automobile-to-environment communication in real-time, in-automobile detection, out-automobile detection and real-time recommendation required for system assisted driving. The research encompasses the following focus areas:

  • Image Processing
  • Computer Vision
  • Machine Learning
  • Deep Learning

The research produced by the Next-Gen Communications Group will have a significant impact on the automobile industry, car electronic manufacturers, Ministry of Urban Development and National Highway Authority of India.
