A smart Vehicle Speed Monitoring and Traffic Routing System (VSMTRS) is proposed using Wireless Sensor Networks to monitor and report about the speeding vehicles and also to regulate the traffic. The system is built up of wireless modules including Crossbow MicaZ mote MPR2400, a 2.4 GHz IEEE 802.15.4, Tiny Wireless Measurement System (TWMS), a data acquisition card MDA320CA and a base station MIB510. The other modules include a microcontroller and a motor. The software used includes Tiny OS-1.11, Crossbow Moteworks (Xsniffer, Moteview, Moteconfig), MATLAB 7.30 for Data Processing PIC 16F877A is used for generating required data. MPLAB Assembler is used for microcontroller programming. This paper explains about the hardware prototype setup for part of VSMTRS, the algorithms used for the purpose, the advantages and the limitations of the entire system. Also the configuration of the setup, the OS and the application software are elaborated.
