The automotive industry in India is one of the fastest growing globally. India manufactures over 11 million vehicles (including 2 wheeled and 4 wheeled) which are creating a heavy problem of traffic control and security. In most of the part, the traffic is controlled based on timer, regardless of density of congestion over a particular area at particular time. In this paper, the authors have came out with an approach, solving the heavy traffic and the automobile security problem with the help of image processing/laser detection and establishing simple ad-hoc network(using router and PCI cards). The shortest path with minimum cost is decided based on a congestion value which depends on number of vehicles intake, outcome and distance between the source and destination.
