Vehicular travel is increasing in everywhere as more people are travelling across the country, and this increase in the number of vehicle on the road especially during the weekends has led to congestion at road inter sections thereby increasing time wasting of the people at the road, chaos by the pedestrians crossing the junction and most at times leads to accidents. The ambulance path it will be cleared in advance by using high technology and also presently the clearance of the heavy traffic is done using the siren of the ambulance or police cars. This paper presents a microcontroller based traffic light control system that has the ability to control any type of junction based on traffic density and providing priority for the emergency vehicle such as ambulance. It employed camera placed on each traffic signal pole to detect the presence and absence of vehicles and reacts accordingly, the controlling device (R5F100LE Microcontroller) that monitor the output and switches the LEDs (Red, Yellow or Green light) in a particular sequence based on the program loaded into it to control and provides the priority to the emergency vehicle.
