Soon, ‘Smart traffic signals’ to reduce commuters’ waiting time on Indian roads

Bangalore: In order to reduce congestion on the road and reduce commuters’ waiting time, a plan to install ‘smart traffic signals’ is under consideration.

According to the report published in Rush Lane, these signals will reduce the unnecessary waiting time of the commuters on the roads.

Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA) is planning to invest Rs 72 crores in Bangalore in this project. If this project is proved to be successful, these signals will be installed in other Indian cities too. These signals can reduce waiting time by almost 30 percent.

It may be mentioned that earlier, JICA had installed such signals in countries like Cambodia, Myanmar and Thailand.

Here is how these signals work

Currently, traffic signals work on a fixed timer. The commuters have to wait for a fixed amount of time irrespective of the number of vehicles at the junction.

Smart traffic signals are different. It considers the number of vehicles at the junction before turning into red or green. These signals will work on sensors which will be installed on the road to analyze the traffic flow.

It may be noted that such traffic signals are likely to be installed at 29 junctions in Bangalore.

मंदिरों में बँटे अब यही प्रसाद, एक पौधा और थ ोड़ी सी खाद

मंदिरों में बँटे अब यही प्रसाद,
एक पौधा और थोड़ी सी खाद

हर मस्जिद से यही अजान,
दरख्त लगाए हर इंसान ।

अब गूंजे गुरूद्वारों में वानी,
दे हर बंदा पौधों को पानी ।

सभी चर्च दें अब ये शिक्षा,
वृक्षारोपण यीशु की इच्छा ।

"नित हो रहीं हैं सांसें कम !
आओ पेड़ लगाऐं हम !"

Sindhu Loses In Thailand Open Final

Bangkok: Olympic silver medallist P V Sindhu’s title drought this year continued as she suffered a straight-game defeat against Japan’s Nozomi Okuhara in the summit clash of the USD 350,000 Thailand Open World Tour Super 500 badminton tournament here today.

Second seed Sindhu struggled with her consistency throughout the duel as fourth seeded Okuhara dominated the proceedings to beat the Indian 21-15 21-18 in exactly 50 minutes.

It was Sindhu’s third disappointment in a final this year following her defeats in the summit clash of the India Open and Gold Coast Commonwealth Games. Sindhu, who had an ankle strain ahead of the CWG and missed the Uber Cup final, reached semifinal and quarterfinal in her last two tournaments — in Malaysia and Indonesia — before this one.

World number 3 Sindhu showed glimpses of her best against world number 8 Okuhara, who besides the initial part of the second game, looked in complete control over the proceedings. Okuhara took no time to get her grip on the match by taking a 6-2 lead in the opening game.

Sindhu did not give up and used her long reach to great effect and came up with some aggressive cross-court smashes to reduce the margin to 15-17.

But then, Okuhara came up with some really aggressive net play which forced Sindhu to commit unforced errors and the Japanese pocketed four straight points to wrap up the first game in her favour.

Sindhu came out all guns blazing in the second game and showed aggressive intent, along with delicate net play to race to a 5-1 lead.
