Development of an IOT System for Traffic Analysis Purposes from Capturing MAC Address Based Data

There are many technologies for counting and measuring traffic, such as pneumatic tube, IR sensor, Inductive loop, Ultrasonic wave, video image processing and so on. However, many of these technologies are costly and inflexible to operate and some issues about authorization as well as access rights. Meanwhile, in recent years, the number of people using smartphones with internet connection is increasing. Therefore, taking advantage of it for purposes of traffic counting and measurement is necessary. The paper presents process to develop a low-cost and flexible system which utilizes an existing IOT device for traffic data collection from MAC address-based crowd data and process to evaluate the tool as well as an applicable application in traffic analysis. Common problems like detecting capacity of the system, data processing and so on are also discussed. The result shows that the system is flexible and very useful for traffic movement data collection and analysis.
