DeitY develops WiTraC for traffic control systems

The Department of Electronics & Information Technology (DeitY), in its continuing drive to develop affordable technologies for traffic control systems for small and large cities, has come up with a vehicle actuated Wireless Traffic Control System (WiTraC) powered by solar panels. WiTrac has been developed by C-DAC (Centre for Development of Advanced Computing) which works under the DeitY. The technology meets IEC 60068 standards and is certified by Electronic Regional Testing Laboratory. WiTraC supports 868MHz (licensed), 5.8 GHz (unlicensed) wireless and wired Control Area Network (CAN) communication protocol for signal time switching and 2.4 GHz (unlicensed) ISM Band. It is power efficient and runs on a solar panel designed with a 72-hr power backup. WiTraC has been designed for pole mounting and does not require digging or ducting of roads.
