Know more about smart traffic signal control system
Smart Traffic Signal Control System is a system in which the traffic flow on traffic lights is regulated smartly by sensing the gravity of traffic. Traffic lights work on timers which are having uniform rate but under this system, the sensors will regulate the timers sensing the gravity of the number of vehicles approaching the traffic lights from a particular side.
In lay man’s language, the side which has more vehicles, the timer will give more time to that side for moving out the traffic. It will sense and differentiate low populated road and thickly populated road. According to traffic, the timers will automatically increase and decrease the timings.
This system has a set of various instruments like traffic controllers, detection sensors, CCTV cameras, ANPR cameras, timers, Solar panels, illuminators, communication network, speed governors and central server.
