Constructing an intelligent traffic monitoring system firstly depends on automatic identification for vehicles. At present, automatic identification technology based on image and vehicle license plate is going to fall in the trap due to its low recognition rate and affection by adverse weather. Thus it is necessary to apply new technologies to solve this problem, and technologies based on Internet of Things provide a new approach for it. In this paper, we explored this issue and proposed a feasible scheme. At first, we took global unique EPC code as identity identification of vehicles in stead of vehicle license plate and utilized RFID reader to read EPC code by RF electromagnetic wave, which completely solved the problem of no all-weather operations. Secondly, we obtained positioning information of vehicles by using GPS technology. Thirdly, because GPRS provides high-speed wireless IP services for mobile users, fully supports the TCP/IP, we took wireless GPRS scheme to transmit data of mobile objects. The realization of automatic detection and transmission of data provided a fundamental guarantee for constructing an intelligent traffic monitoring system. And then, we designed and discussed in turn its network architecture, data flow analysis, hardware logic structure, software flow, as well as its intelligent decision-making module. Research and design show that it is feasible and inexpensive to construct an intelligent traffic monitoring system based on Internet of Things, and the intelligent traffic monitoring system based on Internet of Things has a number of advantages such low cost, high reliability, never affected by adverse weather, all weather operations etc. Therefore, it will have a broad applying perspective.
