Now a days due to ever increasing vehicles on theroad, it require a efficient control on the four way junction of road. In order to find a solution to this problem the concept of an automatic trafficcontroller is conceived. Apart from providingefficient control of traffic, it also eliminate chance of human errors since it function automatically.
The automatic traffic controller automatically switches on the four way junction for 8 seconds for direction control.
The main circuit components used are 555-Timer and 4-bit binary synchronous counter (74160). The 555-Timer generates a clock signal for 8 seconds. This signal is used to clock counter circuit.Binary counter is converted to 3 bit–counter to achieve 8 possiblecases. The traffic light control is done by different Booleanfunction of logic gate
