Abstract – The abstract of my project is to minimize the amount of time required for crossing the vehicles during the traffic congestion on the road. The basic theme is to control the traffic by using static cameras fixed on the road along top of the traffic pole to check the traffic density on each side of the road.   It recognizes the volume of the traffic at each side of the road and thereby providing an adequate amount of time for the traffic to pass the vehicle. The Morphological operations are performed to extract significant features from the images that are useful in the representation and description of the shape in the region. To calculate number of  vehicles on the road by tracking system based on this green light counter time will be varied .These system will monitors the traffic throughout the day and takes care of the inability of the fixed timers to adjust as per the traffic. It reduces the prolonged waiting time and decrease the average waiting time of every person in the traffic.
