Abstract: In the paper portrayed, we design the automation system using an Arduino ATMEGA microcontroller board for traffic light on a cross road. We created a mechanism by utilizing IR sensors governed with an Arduino ATMEGA board. In the portrayed technique of Arduino program mechanism, the timer of the traffic light will depend upon the traffic blocked by the IR sensor pair and eventually the roadblocks appear as the signal is red. The structure comprises the interconnection of drivers to a motor connected to the roadblocks. The IR pair sensors are responsible for the traffic light timer delay and emerging of the roadblocks. The Arduino ATMEGA is power-driven by a battery and an LED is coupled for its indication purpose.
