Abstract:

This paper is aimed at creating prototype traffic light model using LED (Light Emitting Diode) since LEDs consume 80-90 percent less energy and generally last 5-7 years or longer compared to just a year for a incandescent light signal.LED are brighter, the LED arrays fill the entire “hole” and have equal brightness across the entire surface, making them brighter overall. It will also involves the use of a digital logic gate, multivibrator, IC (Integrated Circuit), timer for the design and circuit simulation to analysis the system efficiency. This design has for long outweighed the older system in many ways it is more efficient and effective as well, as it can enhance the transportation system of the country saving many hours usually lost in traffic problems. Accidents may also be prevented and lives can be saved and It can be used effectively by implementing in heavily congested areas.
