PLC, Sensors, Seven Segments, Traffic Light


The main work of the system will be control the flow of traffic as per the flow and indicate that which lane will be open next by seven segment LED and we can manually open that lane and close other lanes for ambulance with the indication light that indicates next cross road carries heavy traffic. As we know Traffic signals are the most convenient method of controlling traffic in a busy junction. Present traffic signals fail to control the traffic effectively when a lane has got more traffic than the other lanes. In this paper an intelligent traffic control system using PLC is proposed. System measures the traffic density on each road by counting the number of vehicles and then takes the decision. Programming is done using ladder diagram. RSLogix PLC is been used for the system implementation.
