Lahore: Two students of University of Punjab (PU) have developed a model system for traffic controlling to resolve growing incidents in Pakistan.
Hasan Raza and Ali Raza, from Electrical Engineering Department of PU, prepared the model recently claiming to be a solution for traffic problems in the country.
“This project switches to Green light keeping in view of number of cars at the signal with help of cameras installed at the signal,” they said.
“It means that if there are more vehicles at the signal, the system would automatically turn the signal to Green.”
Young engineers say their system is also helpful in case of any emergency for which a blending of GSM and GPS technologies has been used to make a circuit that could be installed in ambulances and fire brigades.
“The circuit has over four buttons out of which one could be pressed to turn the signal Green in case of any emergency by rescue workers,” PU students added.
The system contributes to security system of the country as it would need a surveillance camera at every signal.
These cameras could be used to cope with terrorism incidents, supervision of public meetings and movement of VIPs.
The PU students say that their traffic system is very cheap as it adds only a camera at the signal and a computer at the base station for processing pictures from cameras. via, thenewstribe
