The study of microcontroller-based traffic light system is a typical example of an electronic and industrial system. An initial structure was designed and built. Traffic light materials and devices specifications were methodically made for a comprehensive output. Existing energies of dynamic model were observed separately to generate the model of the traffic light. State – space model of traffic light was developed and microcontroller was used as a programming medium according to state-space model. Microcontroller-based system has some key parameters that are directly engaged with system performance and response. System starts with the Microcontroller which will be the main control, Integrated Circuit which is used to link the signal send by the microcontroller to the mechanical relay being energized to light the outputs which are the traffic lights. Proximity sensors are added to measure the volume of vehicles passing in order to adjust the set time of the traffic lights. Parametric studies were done and system responses were observed by variation of key parameters. Observed results from parametric studies were applied into physical model to improve the traffic light performance.
