SMART TRAFFIC CONTROL SYSTEM BASED ON TRAFFIC DENSITY
Now a days traffic congestion has become a big problem in main cities and towns. The congestion is due to large signal light delays. Irrespective of traffic density the signal light delay is fixed to predefined time and large amount of power is wasted for the lights presented along the roads of these junctions. So this project is designed to reduce or control the traffic jams especially at multi-road junctions. The project is based on IR sensors.IR LEDs and photodiodes are placed either sides of the roads. This entire IR Sensors are controlled by Arduino board. With the help of these traffic density is tracked based on traffic density, signal light time is updated every time and traffic is managed well. Street lights present along the roads will be ON only when there is any vehical present there. The system entirely depends on Arduino board.
