According an embodiment, the present disclosure provides a system for controlling traffic at anintersection. The system includes one or more traffic controlling apparatuses having one or morecontrol lights, the one or more traffic controlling apparatuses configured at the intersectionhaving two or more intersecting lanes, at least one camera configured at the intersection tocapture one or more images of at least a part of the two or more intersecting lanes. A processingunit operatively coupled with the at least one camera and the one or more traffic controllingapparatuses, the processing unit configured to extract one or more features from the captured oneor more images, wherein the one or more features pertains to traffic on each of the two or moreintersecting lanes. Determine density of traffic on each of the two or more intersecting lanes bydetermining number of objects of traffic on each of the two or more intersecting lanes based onthe extracted one or more features; and generate control signal for each of the one or more trafficcontrolling apparatuses for controlling time period of operation of the one or more control lightsof each of the one or more traffic controlling apparatuses.
