Intelligent Traffic Light Control Using Image Processing
In India, with the growing number of vehicles, traffic congestion at junctions has become a serious issue. The
density of vehicles is increasing day by day and there is an urgent need of adaptive traffic signals which can do real time
monitoring of traffic density. This paper describes a system which uses image processing for regulating the traffic in an
effective manner by taking images of traffic at a junction. A step by step approach of image acquisition, image processing
and implementation of algorithm to change the traffic light duration as per the density of vehicles on different roads at a
traffic signal is followed. The number of objects in a given image is counted and priority is given to the densest road.
