PROJECT DESCRIPTION

One of the major problems faced by anyone in any metro city is the traffic congestion. Subjecting oneself to traffic congestions is a big nightmare for anyone living in a metropolitan city, and it is a big headache, especially for someone driving a vehicle in heavy traffic. Controlling the traffic of such a high magnitude is too difficult using outdated methods.  This proposed system is enhanced to control the traffic using multiple microcontrollers. They communicate with each other via a serial communication.

The goal of this project is to develop a synchronized traffic signal system which can be used to synchronize the traffic singles at the junctions in a metropolitan city where the vehicles once getting a green signal at one junction continue to get the same green signal at consecutive junctions. This happens through a serial communication to all the microcontrollers used in the network.

The proposed system uses a microcontroller of the PIC16 series family and a rectified power supply. The number of LEDs interfaced to the microcontroller represents the traffic light signals. Each microcontroller is responsible for one particular junction.

If the vehicles are assumed to travel at a particular speed at one junction, then the traffic signals change in the same way. Once  the vehicle get the green signal at one junction, the same signal is maintained throughout the consecutive junctions by communicating with each microcontroller interrupt.

The major advantage of adopting this technology is that, there is no need for any centralized body to monitor the direction of traffic flow. As human involvement is negligible, there will be a little scope of human error.

Hence, this approach will be a boon for government and local authorities facing financial constraints as they can’t spend money on costly cameras and software.
