With India being the second most populated country in the world, it’s only obvious that the traffic in this country would also warrant a mention of it’s own. India has the second largest network of roads in the world, yet traversing these roads is no less than waging a war for the citizens.  One of the reason behind this is the rapid increase in the private ownership of vehicles and the overburdening of roads in all major cities.

For an average Indian, the everyday struggle of dodging traffic and rash drivers has managed to become one of the major causes of chronic stress and high blood pressure.

Thus, this project – a Deep Learning based approach to calculate traffic Congestion from camera feed, is aimed at making people aware of the traffic in a certain area and thus trying to prevent the inconvenience caused by it.
