Implementing Smart Traffic Control System for Congestion Management

Authors(4) :-Dr. L. Bhagyalakshmi, Narmadha. M, Nisha. C, Nitharshana. S

This paper presentsSmart Traffic light Control System for congestion management which is implemented using Infra-Red sensors. An infrared sensor is an electronic instrument which is used to sense certain characteristics of its surroundings by either emitting or detecting infra red radiations. Infrared sensors are also capable of measuring the heat being emitted by an object and detecting motion. It helps us to know more about the congestion of traffic and reduce it. Sensors are kept at both the sides of the road and it is kept at a distance of 500 metre away from the signal and that place is built in such a way that only one car can pass through the lane.Sensors sense the number of cars passed and alter the timer of the green light.If the number of cars passed is low, the timer will be set for 10 seconds and if the number of cars passed is high, the timer will be set for 30 seconds. This is how congestion management is done.
