This project is
about a simple traffic light model, located at a four-way junction. You will
find a step-by-step guide on how to come up with the hardware and software in
order to implement the traffic light system. When a programmer can create the
control software for this type of project, it surely means he knows how to do
his work when talking about programming any kind of CPU.
In this project, a
traffic light control system is going to be produced by using an ATmega8
Microcontroller and an Arduino Mega 2560 board. The hardware part is intended
for a four-way junction. The Control program is developed for a main street
(S/N) with four intersections (4 E/W streets) to control their traffic lights.
There are two
traffic light boxes with 3 light indicators and a 1x2 digits countdown meter on
the East-West roads that intersect the main. The main goal of the project is to
sync all timers and traffic lights.
This book has been
created for those who are familiar with programming a typical Microcontroller
and want to challenge their knowledge by writing a more complex control
program. The schematics diagrams of all other hardware used in this project are
given for this model. This project will help you learn the circuit design for a
traffic light control system. It is presented in two chapters:
Table of content:
Chapter one is
devoted to the design and implementation of a traffic light control system
using an AVR microcontroller (Atmega8).
Chapter two is
devoted to redesigning the same traffic light system using the Arduino Mega
2560 board, a microcontroller board based on the Atmega2560.
Developing this will give you an idea to either how to
implement a relatively complex end year college project or give you enough
hands on experience to apply for an entry level job on application of
Microcontrollers with full confidence.
