In this paper, a real time emergency vehicle tracking through architecture of instinctive emergency recognition system with high-intensity digital camera it is located in a national high way traffic signal. In a recent survey, there are thousands of people losing their lives due to the delay in the emergency services. Resent survey say that more than 4000 heart attack victims can be saved each year if the delay could be minimized and in the present scenario the number of deaths is in lakhs and this number can be effectively reduced by providing timely and accurate emergency service all the way through avoiding the unnecessary time delay near traffic jams during an emergency situation (Tagne et al. in IEEE Trans Intell Transp Syst 17(3):796–809, 2015). This method clarifies the modeling and working of different units of the emergency vehicle identification system such that optimized emergency vehicle tracking algorithm, with the traffic supervision unit. In this article confer the basic components and their function such that internet of things and their dissimilar layers of protocol, raspberry pi and its architecture, with interfacing sensors such as Siren sound detect (REES-52), the Wireless sensor (NRF905se). It is direct and the most efficient route that is asphalt construct to the central server checks for the location of the vehicle and change the traffic signal. When the emergency vehicle is approaching the traffic lights. The system generate in sequence regarding the traffic emergency situations such as ambulance and siren sound (Emergency Services Review: A comparative review of international ambulance service best practice. Accessed 28 July 2017, 2017). The processed information can be used to divert the live traffic as desirable to avoid the problems related to real time road traffic (Sundar et al. in Sens J IEEE 15(2):1109–1113, 2015).
