Efficient Traffic Handling & Traffic Signal Rules Alert System using Thermographic Camera and Image Capturing
Traffic has been one of the serious problems faced by people throughout the world and this can be attributed to two main reasons. The increasing population of the world which is directly proportional to the number of vehicles and the next reason is inefficient traffic managing system especially during bad weather conditions and places having bad roads hence making it difficult for the daily commuters. This paper is on traffic management, done through a thermo graphic camera which detects the heat emitted from a body. This camera is plugged to the Arduino board such that it efficiently handles the traffic by giving inputs to the traffic signal lights taking into consideration the length of the thermal energy spread across the road due to vehicles, in that particular junction and also gathering inputs from the previous traffic signals thus by efficiently prioritizing and managing the traffic smoothly. The QR reader connected to the microcontroller scans all the emergency purpose vehicles like ambulance, fire service etc and it gives them primary importance and gives way for it by managing the traffic efficiently since it has outputs of the previous signals also hence they can manage the traffic efficiently. This paper also deals with the traffic rules safety and it incorporates the use of image capturing where any vehicles infringe the traffic signals the owner is given a notice and the police nearby is alerted via GSM module.
