Road traffic has become one of the main issues in Sri Lanka.Poor infrastructure facilities are unable to handle the increasing traffic and this resulted in generating higher traffic in town areas. Another reason for the road traffic is the poor traffic management systems implemented as well as the poor traffic management by the traffic police. Inexperienced traffic police handling the traffic might sometimes create more traffic rather than decreasing the traffic. Violation of the road rules and regulations also increase the traffic generated on the roads. The valuable time as well as the money spent on fuel is wasted due to this issue. To address this issue following system will first analyse video footage using object detection algorithms and count the number of cars entered into a particular road. Using the output counts prediction algorithm which the system consist will statistically generate a predicted time that the traffic light should be timed. This green time is the optimal time that the traffic light systems should be programmed in order to minimize the road traffic. Key benefits of this system is the reduction of the traffic thus save the valuable time of the citizens and saving the money which spent on fuel. And in the long run pollution of environment in air and sound forms will reduced as well as the increase of the productivity as a country will utilize the limited time due to the system.
