With rapid increase in motorization, urbanization, population growth, and changes in population density, Traffic Congestion problems have increased worldwide. Traffic Congestion causes increase in traveling time, air pollution and increase in fuel usage is also observed. Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) are used to avoid these problems and improve efficiency, safety and service. Traffic Flow Forecasting is an important part of ITS [1][2]. Traffic Flow Forecasting (TFF) is for Controlling Traffic and Intelligent Traffic Guidance. TFF is the study of interactions between vehicles, drivers, and infrastructure (which includes highways and traffic control devices), with the aim of understanding and developing an optimal road network with efficient movement of traffic and minimal traffic congestion problems.
