The organized placement of emergency vehicles and traffic control devices on a roadway can create safer working conditions for emergency responders. The risks associated with working in moving traffic and the constantly changing emergency scene environment can be reduced through awareness, training, teamwork and communication. In this we are using an Embedded C application with help of RFID technology to control the traffic according to the emergency condition and also to detect theft vehicles that pass through the traffic control system. Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is the wireless use of electromagnetic fields to transfer data, for the purposes of automatically identifying and tracking tags attached to objects. The tags contain electronically stored information. RFID uses a passive system to support tracking of the theft vehicle and also alert the traffic control in case of any emergency conditions. Once the vehicle is identified as emergency or theft vehicle through RFID passive system then the following changes or made in the traffic control system so that the vehicle can pass through or can be caught hold respectively. Hence, RFID will communicate to the traffic signal system accordingly and the traffic control for any emergency condition or theft alert is done.
