Om Shelat, Ira Sidhu, Soumya Juneja and Shreya Raju, built an intelligent traffic light that reacts to real-time traffic density using image processing and has the potential of reducing fleet time.

Gurugram-based Class 11 students have developed an intelligent traffic light management system that could ease the congestion woes in our cities.

What earns the project a brownie point is also that it is compatible with the existing traffic lights, thus drastically cutting down costs and the time required for implementation.

It is the first of its kind innovation by students concerning Indian roads and traffic situation.

When the students decided to create a smart traffic light that would work on real-time traffic, IT teachers at their school handheld them through the process from ideation to execution. The project was christened Intelligent Traffic Light Management System.
