In order to have a long-term approach toward future endeavors, security of life is of utmost importance. The ambulance communicates with the traffic light controller at the nearest crossway through radio frequency technology using RF module, navigation system, and switch array. The command of traffic light guides the ambulance the way forward to reach the destination at the proper time. This paper illustrates the complete use of available techniques in an optimized manner and to utilize it for maximum benefit for the public of the nation. The proposed system has free space path loss equal to 99.16 dB approximately which is good for a wireless system configuration to work efficiently.
