Executive Summary

This paper presents a traffic monitoring system implemented through Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) technology within SAFESPOT Project funded by the European Community. The aim of this paper is to provide a flexible, robust, low-cost and low-maintenance wireless solution for obtaining traffic-related data that can be used for automatically generating safety warnings at black spots along the road network. The WSN consists of one Gateway Node (GN) and n Sensor Nodes (SNs) deployed along the roadside according to an approximately linear topology.
