The purpose of this project is to develop a prototype system that able to help the UTHM's Campus guard to monitor and control the traffic more efficiently. Research had been done on traffic light operation, PLC microcontroller, ATMEL microcontroller, and different type of method applied so that it produce a low cost traffic light system. PIC18F4550 microcontroller is chosen for this project due to it is lowest cost and fulfills the requirements and objectives. Basically, the prototype system consists of hardware and software. On the hardware part, the PIC1 8F4550 microcontroller will control the LEDs (traffic light) via computer. On the other hand, the computer provides the interface so that the user is only required to press the button to manipulate the LEDs. The outcome of this project will have an interface on computer screen where it is develop by Visual Basic software to control the LEDs (traffic light). Simulation using Proteus ISIS software show the result on traffic light timing and is compare to the real time application for justifying the accuracy. The accuracy of this project is up to 95%. Throngh this project, I had explored and learnt on hardware SK40c, PIC18F series and software Visual Basic, MPLAB IDE, and PROTEUS ISIS. There are some recommendations included in this project for future development.
