Traffic congestion on road networks is characterized by slower speeds, longer trip times and increased vehicular queuing. The people all are observing that vehicle volume is increasing day by day exponentially, but in comparison with it, the road infrastructure is not. It leads to ever increasing traffic congestion. Different technologies are used to detect traffic congestion and making congestion management more efficient. For that, lots of techniques have been found out. In this paper, the author has studied the Radio Frequency IDentification technique (RFID) which is used for controlling traffic congestion. The data created from it has to be processed and then used by the different traffic control systems on the road.
