Abstract

The article examines how Smart Transportation Systems (STS) might revolutionize transportation, using Nigeria as a case study. It addresses worldwide urban transportation obstacles, such as traffic jams and safety concerns, and presents STS as a workable solution, outlining its main features and advantages. The study explores the classification of sensors in STS, including vehicle-based, traffic control, and supporting technologies, and clarifies how they contribute to traffic management, driving assistance, and safety improvements. The research delves into communication protocols as well, with a focus on wireless sensors and Vehicle Ad-hoc Networks (VANETs), which provide real-time data sharing between cars and infrastructure for enhanced traffic updates, route optimization, and safety precautions. The report highlights Nigeria's efforts and emphasizes the potential advantages of universal adoption, while admitting the limited implementation of STS in poor nations. In order to fully realize the advantages of STS in enhancing urban life and transportation systems, not just in Nigeria but also worldwide, it finishes by highlighting the need for ongoing research, legislative frameworks, and infrastructure investment.
