Traffic congestion has been a problem in Ghana for a while now. Unfortunately, the traffic control system in Ghana is inefficient at managing this issue. This is because it solely operates based on time intervals of 1 and a half to 2 minutes, which leads to an equal allocation of flow time. However, equality does not necessarily mean efficiency as some of the time allocated could be wasted because of the low number of vehicles at the junction. Therefore, this project proposes an intelligent traffic control system using an efficient algorithm. This project aims to use efficient algorithms and Artificial Intelligence to make real-time and dynamic decisions based on data gathered to ensure a more efficient and equitable traffic control management system. Traffic data such as the number of vehicles, prioritized vehicles like ambulances, etc. is gathered at every junction and real -time traffic flow decisions are made to drain the network of junctions based on the density of vehicles on each stretch of road.
