1. INTRODUCTION
Urban traffic congestion poses a significant challenge to
transportation systems worldwide, leading to increased
commute times, environmental pollution, and economic
losses. In response to this pressing issue, we introduce a
cutting-edge Traffic Congestion Control System that
harnesses the power of Machine Learning to transform
urban traffic management.
This system combines a range of advanced technologies to
achieve its objectives, with a primary focus on optimizing
signal timings at intersections andinterconnectedroutes.By
utilizing real-time data from live cameras installed at traffic
points, it dynamically allocates signal durations to mitigate
congestion effectively.
A key innovation lies in the application of deep learning
techniques for congestion detection. To improve efficiency,
the system employs preprocessing methods for smaller
camera images, reducing the dependency on high-quality
inputs and manual calculations. The heart of the congestion
detection process is a Convolutional Neural Network (CNN)
model, trained on a diverse dataset comprising over 1000
CCTV monitoring images. In a time of urban expansion and
growing traffic demands, the integration of these innovative
systems is pivotal for developing an efficient, eco-friendly
transportation network. Such a network not only benefits
commuters by reducing travel times and enhancing safety
but also contributes to a cleaner environmentbyminimizing
unnecessary fuel consumption and emissions.
This System explores the architecture, design, and
performance of the Traffic Congestion Control System,
shedding light on its potential to revolutionize traffic
management in urban environments. We demonstrate how
the fusion of machine learning, real-time data analysis, and
predictive modelling can pave the way for a smarter, more
sustainable future in urban transportation.

INTRODUCTION Urban traffic congestion poses a significant challenge to transportation systems worldwide, leading to increased commute times, environmental pollution, and economic losses. In response to this pressing issue, we introduce a cutting-edge Traffic Congestion Control System that harnesses the power of Machine Learning to transform urban traffic management. This system combines a range of advanced technologies to achieve its objectives, with a primary focus on optimizing signal timings at intersections andinterconnectedroutes.By utilizing real-time data from live cameras installed at traffic points, it dynamically allocates signal durations to mitigate congestion effectively. A key innovation lies in the application of deep learning techniques for congestion detection. To improve efficiency, the system employs preprocessing methods for smaller camera images, reducing the dependency on high-quality inputs and manual calculations. The heart of the congestion detection process is a Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) model, trained on a diverse dataset comprising over 1000 CCTV monitoring images. In a time of urban expansion and growing traffic demands, the integration of these innovative systems is pivotal for developing an efficient, eco-friendly transportation network. Such a network not only benefits commuters by reducing travel times and enhancing safety but also contributes to a cleaner environmentbyminimizing unnecessary fuel consumption and emissions. This System explores the architecture, design, and performance of the Traffic Congestion Control System, shedding light on its potential to revolutionize traffic management in urban environments. We demonstrate how the fusion of machine learning, real-time data analysis, and predictive modelling can pave the way for a smarter, more sustainable future in urban transportation. 2.
