Abstract: Every second heart attack patient in India takes 7 hours to reach a hospital, which is almost 14 times more than the ideal time within which a heart patient should be treated that is 30 minutes, government data shows.A two-year data from the ongoing Management of Acute Coronary Event (MACE) Registry of the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) shows at some places it even takes 15 hours. A lot of precious time is still being wasted in traffic. Also some lines in the traffic junction are prone to traffic than the other lines and all the lines are held green for the same time irrespective of the density of traffic. The FPGA (Basys-3) based traffic controller sets the light green of a line if it detects ambulance (using sound sensor) in that particular line. Also if the density (determined using IR sensor) in one of the lines is high that particular line is held green for longer time.
Keywords: Traffic light controller, FPGA, sound sensor, IR sensor.
