An Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) is a new system developed for the betterment of user in traffic and transport management domain area for smart and safe driving. ITS subsystems are Emergency vehicle notification systems, Automatic road enforcement, Collision avoidance systems, Automatic parking, Map database management, etc. Advance Driver Assists System (ADAS) belongs to ITS which provides alert or warning or information to the user during driving. The proposed method uses Gaussian

The resultant image is converted to binary image and the regions are analyzed using connected component approach. The prior work on speed bump detection is achieved using sensors which are failed to detect speed bumps that are constructed with small height and the detection rate is affected due to erroneous identification. And the smartphone and accelerometer methodologies are not perfectly suitable for real time scenario due to GPS error, network overload, real-time delay, accuracy and battery running out. The proposed system goes very well for the roads which are constructed with proper painting irrespective of their dimension.
