Traffic congestion problem persists more at junctions and causes inconvenience to public. Owing to this, people may not reach their destinations in time. Although there are alerts in mobile phones regarding arrival times of flight services and other journey related information due to sudden traffic jams at junctions these advanced technology innovations are being becoming fragile. Since long, many researchers have been putting their efforts to find remedies for reducing traffic congestion. Objectives: The key focus is on balancing forwarding time and waiting time at junctions based on the number of vehicles arrived at that junction. Methods: The proposed system uses Internet of Things (IoT) based monitoring to control signaling system. IR sensors are used to count number of vehicles passing over the lane by triggering clock for object detection. The signaling time can be changed dynamically based on the vehicle count, so that more time is allocated to the lanes which have more traffic and the remaining time is adjusted among other lanes. This reduces congestion at dense traffic lanes. Findings: There will be time variant setting of signal lights based on the density of the traffic. The dense traffic lanes will be allotted more time and will be cleared first. Expanding on this point, the time adjustment is done based on the vehicle count not on periodical fixation of intervals. Novelty: The ecosystem developed provides an ultimate solution to vehicle users for comfortable movement on the roads without being delayed.
