Abstract :

The usage of embedded system in the traffic control unit is not new. Many advanced intelligent systems are being used to reduce the human effort, and wasting time. As a result, road congestion and accident rate are being decreased. But in some critical spots like blind turn in the hill areas where the turn is too much sharp that it’s impossible to identify the existence of coming vehicles and the result may be very dangerous which need to be improved more with advance traffic controlling system. In this paper, we are going to propose a laser based embedded system which can efficiently control the traffic in the blind turn areas through giving proper signals in any situation. A driver can easily identify both the types and numbers of the vehicles coming from the other side by getting signals from the signal terminal. The proposed system is flexible and cost effective so that it can play a vital role by being widely used in the near future.
