Signaling of BRTs using PLC is undertaken with a view to make the traffic system of Pune more convenient to the common man, currently or traffic system is based on microcontroller whose operating cost is very high and not user friendly but by using PLC whose initial cost is high but the operating cost is negligible and also the traffic signal also can be centrally controlled by using PLC. With the help of PLC we tried to resolve and synchronize the traffic system by using BRTS in which there is one lane for the public means of transport and other lane is for normal traffic.
