Abstract : Background/Objectives: This paper focus on the necessity of intelligent traffic system and the peculiar way of implementation with embedded system tools. Here it is implemented using an object counting methods and detection of emergency vehicles simultaneously thereby control the traffic signals based on the priority outcome. Methods/Statistical analysis: Presently various system do provide a cost effective solution, but the rate of successful operation is bad. Inductive loop detectors installed under surface, this fails in case of poor road condition and so. In the other system, the density is found by installing IR detectors along the side of the lane. These systems operate less efficiently where they are not applicable in the real time process. This method uses image acquisition method using a real time live video stream and the algorithm is processed using MATLAB. Results/Findings: The results obtained with the prototype are much encouraging and the system does help the present traffic control system to be more efficient. Conclusion/Application: Computer Vision being one of the most researched are for the future technologies, this system will add gain to this sector with efficient operation replacing the current primitive timer traffic control system. This helps the emergency casualties to be attended quickly without panic of traffic congestion.
