Traffic Management System

Traffic Management System
    The main focus of the Smart City Lab, NCAI is to solve the problem of traffic congestion. It is one of the major problems faced by the citizens of Karachi and the real-time detection of road traffic congestion may be used in traffic control systems. In order to provide the least congestion route to the emergency vehicles by implementation of the plan, the team has developed modules for vehicle detection, classification and number plate detection. The congestion conditions depend on the type of roads such as single lane road or multi-lane road, heavily crowded road or less crowded road. The benefits of the Traffic Management System are reduction in congestion, delays in collisions, less time to travel, least consumption of fuel and less transportation cost. Also, it leads to lesser road accidents in the future.

Development of Neural Sensor Network to Strengthen Decision Support System for Water Resource Management Using AI & IoT

Water Resource Management Pakistan's principal natural resources are fertile soil and water; thus, agriculture is viewed as the foundation of its economy. Sindh has an agriculture-based economy, and produces a vast number of crops. Due to the absence of the monsoons, its limited water supply leads to the scarcity of basic crops. The main goal of this study is to determine the optimal solution in IoT based irrigation to bridge the gap between the utmost usage of water to maximize yield of crops. The main objective is to design an expert system to automate the process of estimating water supply to the field. It will be evaluated by implementing a decision support system to decide how much water should be provided. We will use an Intelligent Decision Support System (IDSS) because it is a decision support system that makes immense utilization of artificial intelligence (AI) techniques. Therefore, the study concluded that the current utilization of water for irrigation system can be minimized extensively while keeping up the yield by applying IoT based irrigation scheduling methods.

Green Space Detection and Trees Count Analysis of Pakistan Using Satellite Imagery and Deep Learning

Green Space Detetction Trees and other forms of greenery and plantation are vital for the survival of living things on Earth. Trees not only provide us with oxygen for our respiration and absorb carbon dioxide, but they help to stabilize the soil, balance the ecosystem, and are also an active food source for humans and animals alike. Moreover, wood from the trees is used to make paper, houses, furniture, and tools. Unfortunately, the area occupied by plants is quickly reducing due to deforestation and overpopulation. Therefore, a system is required which can determine and analyze the amount of plantation there is to be in an area.
The focus of this study is to gather satellite image data for Pakistan; then analyze and process it to recommend the right ratio of greenery. Green Area Detector is supposed to be a concept to fight Air Pollution, lack of plantation, and deforestation in any part of the world. It will be designed to generate information about the specified surroundings. Hence, the study aims to provide green and non-green parts in any part of the world with a percentage of the green area after analysis.
