This project is divided into two parts hardware as well as software. The hardware part for this project is a model of four way junction of a traffic light. Each lane has two limits switch (input) functions a sensor. Three indicator lamps with different colours (Red, Yellow and Green) are installed at each lane for representing as traffic light signal. This limiting switches and indicator lamps are connected to PLC of Allen Bradley micrologix 1000. The software part operated in RSLogix, RSLinx and RSLogix Emulate. With using these softwares, the ladder logic diagram is programmed to control the traffic light. At the end of this project, the traffic light successfully control by PLC. Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) is a control system architecture that uses computers, networked data communications and graphical user interfaces for high-level process supervisory management, but here in this project we use other peripheral devices such as programmable logic controllers. Supervisory and Data Acquisition System is used for both for controlling and monitoring purpuses.
