Abstract: In this fast and materialized world, automation is a necessity as it provides flexibility, ease of operation, and operational safety. This paper presents automation on controlling the movement of a drawbridge and detection of ships using the video surveillance for ports thereby replacing the manual system which is currently used. Also, the status of the bridge will be uploaded on Cloud. This paper can be divided into three sections; vessel detection, operation of the bridge, and uploadation of data on the cloud. Picamera is used to monitor the arrival and leaving of the ships. For detection, Opencv and Python are used. Raspberry Pi is used to mechanize the whole system. For the operation of a bridge, a servo motor is used as an actuator and a driver circuit is used to control it. PIR Sensor and LED are used to provide input to the system and the servo motor serves as an output. Python is used as a programming language to control the whole system between input and output
