Product Description

The project is designed to develop a density based dynamic traffic signal system having remote override facilities. During normal time the signal timing changes automatically on sensing the traffic density at the junction but in the event of any emergency vehicle like ambulance, fire brigade etc requiring priority  are built in with RF remote control to override the set timing by providing instantaneous green signal in the desired direction while blocking the other lanes by red signal for some time.

Traffic congestion is a severe problem in many major cities across the world thus it is felt imperative to provide such facilities to important vehicles.

Conventional traffic light system is based on fixed time concept allotted to each side of the junction which cannot be varied as per varying traffic density. Junction timings allotted are fixed. Sometimes higher traffic density at one side of the junction demands longer green time as compared to standard allotted time.

The proposed system using a microcontroller of 8051 family duly interfaced with sensors, changes the junction timing automatically to accommodate movement of vehicles smoothly avoiding unnecessary waiting time at the junction.

The sensors used in this project are IR and photodiodes are in line of sight configuration across the loads to detect the density at the traffic signal. The density of the vehicles is measured in three zones i.e., low, medium, high based on which timings are allotted accordingly. The override feature is activated by an on board RF transmitter operated from the emergency vehicle.

Further the project can be enhanced by synchronizing all the traffic junctions in the city by establishing a network among them. The network can be wired or wireless. This synchronization will greatly help in reducing traffic congestion.

Get 100% Assured Successful Results

A simple and effective plan that assures you the best scores, a plan that gives you time to read, learn, practically experience the whole workings of your project and create a successful unit you can proudly showcase. And the best part is this… even if your own project unit malfunctions... you will still have a ready-made project unit for yourself, just in case there is a last minute issue that you or your teammates could not solve. Confused? Well let me explain.

Plan A: Create A Successful Project Model By Yourself

Plan B: Have A Expertly-Made & Quality-Tested Replica Of Your Project For Assured Results

So here’s how it works.

In my engineering days, we used to struggle replicating a PCB model from our text books with real tools. We had a tough time with the circuits and most of the time - they used to fail. So I wanted to solve this problem not just for myself but for all my fellow students like you. Young, energetic and knowledgeable youth who really want to learn but still cannot afford to fail with the project because it matters and the colleges rarely help us out productively.

So I want to give you a beautiful DIY model of the project that also includes:

  1. A Complete set of tools, circuit diagrams, tested PCD, zero board, audiovisuals and everything else you will need to execute your project to perfection.
  2. A ready-made unit of the project itself, so that you can actually see, test and learn in real-time and if by any chance you could not complete the unit by yourself - can submit this unit for an assured first-class score.

Sounds like a dream? Well, yes it is and here’s how you can benefit from this project not just in your final year but also help you with your interviews and in the future too.

"I live in Hyderabad, a place that is known for engineering colleges. Went with frnd and bought a set from Ameerpet(tht hs rdymade stuff like this) and it failed just b4 viva. Thats when we got this thx to a senior who is sorta like a geek.. and let me tell u.. Its one reason why me and my frnds got thru the final sem. Works great and is useful too later.. "

"A must-buy. It helped me practice in real time and learn how to make a project by looking at an actual workable unit. (fyi - you get a fully built unit and another full set of components to build another by yourself) so it was great value for us. We shared the costs by 3 (our team for the project) but i got to keep my unit as the other two kept the original. Showed it for my on-campus and got thru too becuase it not just looked neat and profesionally bt worked great later. (still have it in my room, now working with GE in Bangalore) "

"We have used it for our institution - it is available in lab and has been good for explaining various models in live during class. Strongly suggest every college dept to have it for labs as it is working well - even with regular use at lab for more than 1 year. Note:We got the unit complementarity before launch in 2014 and have later purchased few batches. The team behind it is professional and know what electronics students need and i am writing this review on their request on 13/05/2016"

Q&A

Q:  What is the range of RF?

A:  RF range is about 50 meters.

Q:  What is remote override in this project?

A:  Remote override in this project is wirelessly overriding the running traffic signal system.

Q:  How the remote override occurs?

A:  By using RF communication from vehicle to the signal control computer, remote overriding is achieved.

Q:  In which case is remote override used?

A:  Remote override is used to allow emergency vehicles like ambulances; fire brigades etc a quick passage through the traffic.

Q:  Is it possible to increase the distance and implement it directly on the road?

A:  Yes, increasing the distance and direct implementation is possible with modification at user end.

Q:  What is the role of microcontroller in this project?

A:  The microcontroller is used to develop a dynamic timing

Q:  How the traffic density is automatically sensed?

A:  Traffic is automatically sensed by IR sensor arrangement

Q:  What is this blue and white color device used for?

A:  The blue and white color device is the preset used as a variable resistor.

Q:  Which microcontroller is used in this project?

A:  An 8051 family 40 pin microcontroller is used in this project.

Q:  What is the formula for calculating smoothing capacitor value?

A:  There is some approximated formula .Peak to peak ripple voltage = Load current in amps / (2*line frequency in hertz *capacitance in farads). But as rule of thumb for 1 A current 1000uF is best. Thus it is load dependent.

Q:  Can we develop a traffic accident information system?

A:  If a number of vehicles are standing on a road without moving for preset time duration an alarm will be triggered.
