Abstract: Traffic congestion is one of the major problems, the world is facing today. Traffic monitoring and controlling is a difficult task. The aim of the traffic research is to optimize the flow of vehicular traffic and goods. One way to improve the traffic flow and safety of the current transportation system is to apply automation, intelligent and adaptive signal control methods. Adaptive traffic control and traffic density monitoring system aims at automatically adjusting released time of vehicles as per density available to the roads at the intersection. To reduce the manual work & utilize the time allotted by traffic signal effectively for better transportation system & to help the emergency vehicles to reach their destination faster. We are designing this project to control traffic light through microcontroller. It consumes less time & reduces human efforts. The main advantage of this project is traffic light control according to vehicles density on the roads. Fuel consumption and toxic gases emission can be reduced. Emergency vehicles can reach their destination in less time. This proposed system will be used to build a smart city with less traffic jams.
