Abstract: Traffic congestion control and smart traffic regulation are a great challenge for the engineers of smart applications in smart urban areas. Regardless of many smart applications such difficulties have not yet completely been overcome because of assortment of unpredicted traffic situations in various areas. Selecting correct parameters for decision taking in highly mobile traffic situation is always a problem. The current article focuses on different modern traffic systems with congestion control and traffic management in smart city and explains how various challenges are met with improved mechanism. The proposed approach for smart control of congestion and traffic light in this research article provides clear vision of the traffic situation and further guides distinct mechanisms to avoid congestion so that the traffic flows without problem.
