This article presents a system developed using graphic programming on LabVIEW using image processing and particle analysis so as to indicate increase in vehicular density on particularly traffic-prone roads and hence alert necessary officials of the same instantly. This system primarily focusses on the vehicular density and sets specific thresholds in accordance with the time of the day to give almost accurate results. It also displays an application of computer vision for traffic flow management and road traffic analysis. The method mentioned provides the functionality of alert during times of road clogging and will hence; ensure immediate rectification of the same.
