Abstract

The Traffic Signal Interpretation System will aid a motorist in interpreting the signal color at an approaching intersection. This system includes a transmitting device located at intersections with traffic lights and a receiving device mounted on the vehicle. The transmitting device will be connected to the traffic control box at the intersection and transmitting a signal that has the status of the traffic lights encoded in it. The receiving device in the vehicle will decode the signal, interpret and inform the motorist of the current signal color.
