Abstract: In India, the concept of smart city has evolved since last few years. Smart city includes smart electricity distributions, smart parking, smart lighting on streets, smart water distribution, smart drainage system, smart pipe gas system, smart traffic control system etc. All smart systems listed need smart use of technical solution so that all systems will play critical role in making city as smart. As far as smart traffic control is concerned, there were few solutions suggested and implanted such as sensor with CCTV, camera with IR sensor and tags etc. The technical solution may include software, hardware, communication models, networking, usage of data and of-course data analytics. As large amount of data may be generated by the objects/components involved in the system, it must be analyzed properly. The data may be in structured or un-structured format. In this paper, smart traffic control system with efficient algorithm has been proposed with data analytics to control traffic, which controls the timing of the signal dynamically. At a junction, there is need to control the traffic and signal timing such that air and noise pollution also will be monitored and controlled. In this model, IoT system has been proposed with ultrasonic sensors to control the traffic. The signal timing will be dynamically monitored and adjusted with traffic density within a region. This will give solution to control, monitor the traffic at every signal in a city.
