PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The main objective of this project is to control the traffic lights based on the density of the vehicles at the junction.

Nowadays, traffic congestion is a main problem in major cities wherein the traffic signal lights are programmed for particular time intervals. However, sometimes the demand for longer green light comes in at the one side of the junction due to huge traffic density. Thus, the traffic signal lights system is enhanced to generate traffic-light signals based on the traffic on roads at that particular instant.

The proposed system works based on a PIC16F8 series microcontroller. IR sensors are interfaced to the microcontroller with the help of transistors. The IR sensors are used for detecting the density of the vehicles which are placed within a fixed distance.

If the traffic density is high on a particular side, more priority is given for that side. The sensors continuously keep on sensing the density on all sides of the junction. While the sensors detect high density they correspondingly give first priority for a longer green light at that junction. The side with the next priority level follows the first priority level. The density of the vehicles is year marked  in three zones: low, medium and high based on the timings allotted to them accordingly.

The future prospects and scope of the project can be extended by synchronizing all the traffic junctions in the city and by establishing a network among them. The network can be wired or wireless. This synchronization will greatly help in reducing traffic congestion.
