Existing traffic control circuits deploy fixed time intervals between Red and Green signals. Such a disregard to traffic severity is often the root cause for slow-moving traffic and prompts the need for manual labor. The vision of the project is to decongest a four-way junction road traffic in real-time. The severity in each lane is fetched through Google Maps API. The Raspberry Pi micro-controller makes an API call to Google Maps which returns the data set “duration time”. This data is then referred to allot a signal time-frame dynamically by deploying a decongestion algorithm. Another inclusive feature of this project is to detect emergency vehicles using RFID technology to facilitate quicker decongestion of the lane with such vehicles. To show a simulation, data from Google Maps will be processed and the time frame will be sent to an Arduino Microcontroller to trigger the LED lights connected to it.
