FPGA Has Important Role in Traffic Lights, Read More Here

The number of vehicles that increase every year to make the relevant parties should be more concerned about how the right solution in solving the traffic. This problem can be solved with the traffic light that has cycle time and phase that can be set from time to time for 24 hours. That’s where Altera FPGA traffic light works. Altera fpga development board presents various innovations in order to reach all the needs of its customers.

The fpga-based system is designed by distributing the system into a module to facilitate the design. The core traffic module and the unit traffic module are also required to set the number of paths at the intersection. And it turns out, this traffic light control system works with two types of control, namely manual control and automatic control.

• Automatic control, with this type of control, the cycle will be adaptive according to the clock conditions indicated by the digital clock module. This system has 12 output lines for red, yellow and green lights on 4 lanes at the intersection.

• Manual controls, this type of control consists of two sets of buttons, the set of push button buttons and set switch dip button. This manual control is necessary for emergency purposes, for example, presidential entourage, firefighters, and ambulances requiring traffic access that are not blocked by red lights.

So, apparently, FPGA has many uses, right?
