The major issue that has been identified in this modern world is traffic congestion as with the uplift in economic condition there is also increase in the number of personal vehicles. Hence, there is increase in traffic jam throughout the past years with the rapid growth in the number of personal as well as transport vehicles. Therefore, it has been determined that Arterial and Freeway management systems can be implemented in the highways so as to mitigate the identified issue. The objective of this simulation is to provide a solution that will help to mitigate the issues of traffic jam prevailing in the transport systems. The solution that has been designed in context to the prevailing issue can be solved by suitable controlling of the traffic flow in highways. The simulation shows that the Arterial and Freeway management systems can be used as traffic signal controlling system and the vehicle owner will be notified about congestion on the road. The tool offers simulation functionalities that helps to get an overview on working of the Arterial and Freeway management systems. The major disadvantage is that it can be used for simulation purposes only and there is no scope to implement the same logic in real world as the constraints do not remain the same. The tool has a special feature for running the designed logic which will illustrate the exact sequence of the activities that will be followed in a real world application.
