Currently people tend to face major issues a familiar one in that is traffic congestion. The system tries to reduce possibilities of traffic jams and allows the vehicle to pass through it.The main objective of this project is to control the traffic and the special privileges for emergency vehicles like ambulance and fire extinguisher by using the RFID technology.The software used in this system is pseudo python it helps to track the emergency vehicle. The micro-controller used in the system is Raspberry pi 3. According to this project if any ambulance comes near the traffic post, the traffic signals automatically stop the signals and give green signal for this ambulance with the using of RFID Module.
