Abstract

Pedestrian safety should always be one of the priorities when implementing projects aimed at traffic. The vulnerability of pedestrians increases when they use the crossing roads, and it increases further during the nighttime since drivers have lower visibility of pedestrians on the road. This paper aims to reduce accidents relating to cars and pedestrians. Through the use of Arduino as microcontrollers and ultrasonic sensors, a smart pedestrian-controlled traffic light can be constructed to aid pedestrians crossing while causing a less negative impact on the traffic of the location. A control system will be utilized to analyze traffic and operate the traffic light depending on the data received by the sensors. The project is easy to produce and can be altered depending on the conditions of the location. The operation of the project aims to be useful for both pedestrians and drivers. However, the project cannot be applied to all traffic lights and must be strategically placed on specific situations to maximize the efficiency of the application of the project. © 2020, World Academy of Research in Science and Engineering.
