Vehicular traffic is increasing rapidly in this world which is resulting in traffic congestion. The emergency vehicles such as ambulances, fire engines and police vehicles are given equal priority over other vehicles and hence get stuck up in this traffic congestion. A methodology for priority based vehicle detection based on image processing techniques is proposed in this paper. If an emergency vehicle is detected on the road, the lane in which this vehicle is will be given higher priority over all other lanes. The paper proposes an algorithm which will detect whether a vehicle is an emergency one or not.
