When driving in a new city, we are unfamiliar with the conventions of traffic followed there. Sometimes, there is a free left turn while on others a u-turn is prohibited. Another major problem arises while facing intersections or junctions and deciding which lane is suitable for your destination. Let’s have a look at how Junction Views helps solve this problem.

When driving in a new city, we are unfamiliar with the conventions of traffic followed there. Sometimes, there is a free left turn while on others a u-turn is prohibited. Another major problem arises while facing intersections or junctions and deciding which lane is suitable for your destination. Let’s have a look at how Junction Views helps solve this problem.

Junction Views is a product which was launched with intent to make roads safer for drivers. It helps a driver in lane driving and provides real-time assistance to easily manoeuvre complex junctions.

 

Junction Views can be merged with various other map data layers to have real-time traffic scenarios, traffic bottlenecks, shorter routes, etc. added functionalities. It can also be linked with traffic light’s online software to not only provide user the additional time a traffic light may add to the journey but this data of users can also be used by traffic light’s software to dynamically alter the duration of light depending upon the volume of traffic on different radials of one junction.
Here’s how it works:

  • The software is loaded onto a mobile or personal navigation device to give real-time, location-based updates on roads.
  • While travelling on a particular road, the interface shows the various lanes available for your vehicle type. Since it works on GPS, you destination can be fed to the application to help it in deciding the best possible route/lane.
  • On the map interface, the appropriate lane is chosen and highlighted to assist in the switching process. This is very important in case of complex junctions without proper signage, where a single wrong lane can set you back for tens of kilometres.
  • As the application gets more advanced, it is being used to display real-time traffic information and authorized speed limit of the road the user is on.

 

Junction Views combined with telematics can also be implemented in automobile industry to make cars smarter and safer. With advancements in technology, solutions like Junction Views are developed to add value to the world and to motivate other technology enthusiasts to catalyse the development in such fields.
