—The main object of this paper was to design and
implement intelligent toll road traffic control system. The
system developed is able to sense the presence or absence of
vehicles as the vehicle moves over the LDR (light dependent
resister) panels. These LDR panels give their output to the PLC
(programmable logic controller). There is a global shift to tolling
systems as alternative means of mobilizing domestic revenue for
the development and maintenance of road infrastructure. This
study examines the effectiveness of toll gate systems. The new
timing scheme promises an improvement in the current toll road
traffic system and this system is feasible, ready to be
implemented and it is also very economical as it uses solar
energy from solar panels used for the power consumption.
