The application of ITS is in an infant stage in India. The traffic stream in the western countries are lane based in nature with the major traffic composition including cars and a fewer percentage of trucks, which makes the data collection from the detectors less challenging. However, the Indian traffic being composed of different varieties of vehicles such as two-wheelers, three-wheelers, cars, buses and trucks moving without any lane disciplines makes the data collection a challenging task. Identification of suitable sensors for data collection under Indian traffic conditions by itself is a challenge. Numerous researches are currently being carried out to analyse the effectiveness of sensors for data collection under Indian traffic conditions such as Bluetooth sensors, Wi-Fi sensors, RFID sensors etc.
