Road accidents are the serious humanity and public health issue in Metro Manila. The problem is increasing day by day. Apart from the loss of many lives, the effect of the road crashes on the country’s economy is massive. In Metro Manila, human factors are the main contribution of major road crashes while over-speeding is one of the accelerating factors to the increase of road casualties. Existing measures to limit these problems have been unsuccessful to diminish the road accidents thus only use of handheld devices such as the speed radar in express ways is applicable in limited area. Since these devices are automatic in the sense that they wouldn’t need to be operated manually by the Traffic Police, they have the continuous monitoring of speed and therefore their efficiency in speed detection is high. To address these challenges, a vehicle speed monitoring system integrated utilizing Close-Circuit Television(CCTV) is utmost important.

I. Introduction


Transportation implies the development of individuals and merchandise from one place (area) to another. This development can be through streets, railroads, water air, and pipelines. A productive transportation framework is from multiple points of view the vocation of a financial framework since it is the methods whereby the erosion of room is survived. The need to move products and individuals from place to put is objective and this has made conceivable the adjustments in transportation innovation so as to enhance the proficiency of developments.

The impacts of transportation enhancement are found in the dynamic variation of spatial measurements, which have brought about the shrinkage of the world. The shrinkage is anyway not the equivalent everywhere. The transportation transformations have prompted an expansion in speed of movement and in this manner diminishes the time distance isolating spots. The significant advancement in transportation industry has likewise lessened transportation cost and as the aftereffect of the positive changes in transportation. (Etim, 2017).

Transportation is a necessary piece of present day life. As indicated by Kumari et al. (2010) and Rehrl et al. (2007), a great transportation network is one of each modernized city's underlying needs since the present current society needs portability in each part of life. Consistently, individuals need to go to work, kids need to go to class, and items need to achieve the opposite end of the production network. In any case, as a result of the consistent populace development on the planet, transportation systems are endlessly being blocked. (Norbaneta, Teknomo, 2016).

Area Focused

Our Group pick the area of events which is the accidents. say it’s critical because the number of accidents is increasing since 2006 until these days. Furthermore, this numbers are excessively colossal, making it impossible to disregard. (Rey, 2018)

According to World Health Organization(WHO), there are 1.25 million people all over the world dies due to road accidents. This is the global problem that the (WHO) says that can be both predict and prevent. (Sy, 2017)

Safe Kids Worldwide Philippines(SKWP) executive director Jesus dela Fuente lamented that most of the fatal road accidents in the country are caused by speeding. (Punay, 2017)


Here is some information we say it is critical:

As indicated by information, a total of 434 Filipinos passed away and 19,374 were injured in the capital district because of street crashes, a report by the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) uncovered. This implies 4 in each 100,000 Filipinos passed away while 193 individuals in each 100,000 were harmed (Rey, 2018)

Despite the fact that the numbers were somewhat lower than a year ago losses – 446 dead and 20,876 harmed – street crashes still expanded generally.” (Rey, 2018)

There was a sum of 110,025 street crash occurrences in 2017, 703 more cases from a year ago's figures of 109,322. The 2017 figure means about 299 cases for each day .(Rey, 2018)

Title: Estimating Speed Using a Side-Looking Single-Radar Vehicle Detector

  • Published: April, 2014

This paper displays a side-looking single-shaft microwave vehicle identifier (VD) framework for estimation of per-vehicle speed and length. The proposed VD framework is outfitted with a 2-D go Doppler recurrence balanced consistent wave (FMCW) radar utilizing a squint edge. The related Fourier processor utilizes a reverse engineered gap radar (ISAR) calculation to remove range and speed information for every vehicle utilizing a solitary pillar FMCW radar. The reenactment and trial results indicate exact estimations of vehicle speed and length. The estimation mistakes of speed and length were roughly ± 4 km/h and ±1m, individually. The proposed strategy has amazing location ability for little moving targets, for example, bicycles and walkers, at velocities down to 5 km/h. A business 10.6-GHz radar with flag handling changes was utilized in the tests. (Jeng, Chieng, Lu, 2014)

Figure 2, conventional side-looking vehicle detection system. (Jeng, et. Al, 2014)

Fig. 2 shows that side-looking radar detectors illuminate the direction perpendicular to traffic. A solitary radar indicator in a side-looking setup can cover different paths in the event that it is legitimately put and if fitting sign handling procedures are utilized. For this circumstance, microwave sensors can supplant countless, which are typically introduced in the movement paths. Opposite side-looking establishment is the most mainstream approach for current ITS applications. The working hypothesis of a side looking VD is equivalent to that of a solitary circle in every path. At the point when the vehicle length and vehicle speed are uncorrelated, vehicle speed v and vehicle length l are connected by v=l/t. The conventional installation of a side-looking radar does not use the advantage of detecting the Doppler effect of microwave detectors because the returned Doppler frequency generated by the vehicle is weak. Earlier investigations [5], [6] have identified the feeble Doppler move for estimating ongoing rate by utilizing wide bar reception apparatuses. The weakness of this methodology is debasement in range exactness. Numerous different examinations, have utilized different waveforms and frequencies to acquire range and speed data. Because of the weak Doppler effect, the perpendicular side-looking VD cannot apply the typical FMCW speed detection method by comparing beat frequencies of up and down sweeps or the displacement difference. Therefore, it is essential to build up a proper strategy with a limited pillar single-radar identifier to give precise range, speed, and vehicle arrangement gauges. (Jeng, et. Al, 2014)

  • Published: Feb 2014

This paper centers around the improvement of a versatile roadside attractive sensor framework for vehicle tallying, arrangement, and speed estimation. The sensor framework comprises of remote anisotropic attractive gadgets that don't require to be inserted in the roadway-the gadgets are set alongside the roadway and measure traffic in the promptly nearby path. A calculation dependent on an attractive field display is proposed to make the framework hearty to the mistakes made by bigger vehicles driving in the nonadjacent path. These false considers cause a 8% blunder if uncorrected. The utilization of the proposed calculation lessens this mistake to just 1%. Speed estimation depends on the count of the cross relationship between's longitudinally separated sensors. Quick calculation of the cross relationship is empowered by utilizing recurrence area flag preparing strategies. A calculation for consequently rectifying for any little misalignment of the sensors is used. A high-precision differential Global Positioning System is utilized as a kind of perspective to quantify vehicle paces to assess the exactness of the speed estimation from the new sensor framework. The outcomes demonstrate that the most extreme blunder of the speed gauges is under 2.5% over the whole scope of 5-27 m/s (11-60 mi/h). Vehicle grouping is done dependent on the attractive length and a gauge of the normal vertical attractive stature of the vehicle. Vehicle length is evaluated from the result of inhabitance and assessed speed. The normal vertical attractive stature is evaluated utilizing two attractive sensors that are vertically separated by 0.25 m. At long last, it is demonstrated that the sensor framework can be utilized to dependably tally the quantity of right turns at a crossing point, with an exactness of 95%. The created sensor framework is smaller, versatile, remote, and reasonable. Information are exhibited from a substantial number of vehicles on an ordinary occupied urban street in the Twin Cities, MN, USA. (Taghvaeeyan, Rajamani, 2014).
