The increasing need for traffic detection system has become a vital area in both developing and developed countries. However, it is more important to get the accurate and valuable data to give the better result about traffic condition. For this reason, this paper proposes an approach of tracking traffic data as cheap as possible in terms of communication, computation and energy efficient ways by using mobile phone network. This system gives the information of which vehicles are running on which location and how much speed for the Traffic Detection System. The GPS sensor of mobile device will be mainly utilized to guess a user’s transportation mode, then it integrates cloud environment to enhance the limitation of mobile device, such as storage, energy and computing power. This system includes three main components: Client Interface, Server process and Cloud Storage. Some tasks are carried out on the Client. Therefore, it greatly reduces the bottleneck situation on Server side in efficient way. Most of tasks are executed on the Server and history data are stored on the Cloud Storage. Moreover, the paper mainly uses the distance based clustering algorithm in grouping mobile devices on the same bus to get the accurate data.
