Traffic signals are the most efficient way of controlling traffic in a busy junction. But, we can see that these signals fail to control the traffic effectively when a particular lane has got more traffic than the other lanes. The idea behind this project is to implement a system which would easily control the traffic and helps for the emergency vehicles to reach at their destination easily and quickly. In our project, a system of cameras are used to regulate traffic. They obtain information in their respective places and coordinate with other cameras in the system to change traffic signals and suggest green signal for that route to avoid maximum traffic. Emergency vehicle can be detected with the help of sound sensors placed in the junction, which coordinates with the microcontroller and makes the particular Lane free.
