In our day to day life we witness an increase in population thereby a sudden increase of vehicles on roads causing major traffic jams and delays. There always exists an emergency situation where we require the movement of ambulances and fire engines to reach its destination on time. Due to bad traffic situations this event fails to happen. This paper proposes an automatic green channel facility during heavy traffic for an emergency vehicle in a particular lane. Vehicular Ad-Hoc Networks (VANET) is an effective method of communication between the emergency vehicle, the traffic lights (infrastructure) and the other vehicles. A traffic scenario is created to evaluate the performance of communication between the moving nodes, road side units and the traffic lights, till the vehicle successfully reaches its destination. VANET is an advanced application of Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET), which can easily optimize road traffic as well as improve safety so as to provide an intelligent transport system. The proposed research paper is analyzed through a real-time vehicle traffic scenario simulation and then evaluated through a series of simulation using network simulator. © 2015 IEEE.
