Traffic congestion in the city of Dhaka is reaching a new pinnacle every day. Owing to numerous private cars and local buses, the gridlocks in Dhaka city can be termed as one of the worst in the world. In a recent study done by Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology(BUET) and Accident Research Institute (ARI), it was stated that around 5 million working hours are being lost every year in Dhaka city due to traffic gridlocks. This results in a loss of worth Tk.37,000 crore. In order to resolve this issue and help manage the gargantuan problem, we decided to tackle this by the implementation of Kalman Filter in order to predict the level of congestion at a particular road according to time variance of the day. The reason for using Kalman Filter is because its accuracy. Other reasons being that it can be simulated using Matlab and can be constantly updated using the latest data.
