Now a day all over the world, there has been a rapid increase in vehicle numbers. There are approximately 1 million licensed vehicles in the last year. Due to that traffic problems has increased in the last few years and the present traffic light controllers have limitations because it uses the fixed hardware. They do not have the flexibility of modification on real time basis. The time intervals of green, orange and red signals are fixed therefore the waiting time is more. To make this traffic light controlling more efficient we emerge new technique called as Intelligent Traffic Control System. This uses sensors along with embedded technology .The timings of the red and green lights will be smartly decided based on the traffic on roads. As compared to previous fixed mode traffic light controller this new system is more efficient and flexible. It also has facility to pass the emergency vehicles such as ambulance, fire brigade etc. and also detect and track the stolen vehicles. The design also has scope for further expansion.
