Low Traffic Density, High Traffic Density, Emergency Override, Sound Sensors


In recent years there has been rapid increase in the population of the vehicles, especially in metro cities. Traditional traffic control systems failed in efficient time management. In this paper we propose a traffic system based on the density of the vehicles and provide override for the emergency vehicles. The system proposes different time slots allotted to each road according to the density on it and therefore provide efficient time management. The system also provide signal override control in case of emergency vehicles such as fire brigade, ambulance, etc using sound sensors. The system is designed to develop a density based dynamic traffic signal control. The signal timing changes automatically on sensing the traffic density at the junction. The system contains IR sensors which will be mounted on the either side of the road on poles. It gets activated and receives the signal as the vehicles passes close by it. If high density traffic condition is detected, then more time is provided to the road with high traffic density. If low traffic density is detected, less time is provided to that particular road.
