Abstract: There has been an alarming increase in the number of vehicles on the Indian roads in the recent times, almost triple as that in 2005[10]. which obviously leads to traffic congestion on road and enhanced pollution, although there has been many reasons for the same but major one is unmanaged traffic light system as the current traffic light system is either manual or static timings of traffic lights regardless of the flow of traffic. There is a need for smart solution to the traffic light in Indian cities or to have ITS (Intelligent traffic system). Paper provides a solution based on camera feed at crossings for each lane, process the data through and allocates the “Green” time according to its traffic flow density using YOLO v3 and also takes care of starvation issue that might arise of the solution. As a result the flow of traffic on each lane is automatically optimized and the congestion that used to happen unnecessarily earlier is eliminated and results shows significant benefits in reducing traffic waiting time.
