Internet of things is evolving technology which driving the world towards automation and smart systems. It is major factor of industry 4.0, smart cities and smart societies. Currently, the traffic is increasing exponentially in big cities; control and management of traffic in smart cities is well-known issue. Efficient congestion control and traffic management save many valuable resources. Various sensors are integrated in automated and smart systems to sense, collect and transfer data. Machine learning is another emerging technology that improves the intelligence and capabilities of smart systems. In this paper, we proposed an IoT-ITCHS-ML model to sense, analyze and control the traffic congestion in smart societies. The proposed system sense and notify the congested areas. The proposed systems performed significantly well in comparison with previous approaches and obtain 99.2% accuracy with only 1.2% missrate in training phase; 98.5% accuracy in validation phase. This research prosper the smart systems, IoT innovations and impact of machine learning in smart societies.
