In the midst of energy escalating costs and the risk of global warming, government and NGOs are now recognizing the benefits of using green technology to reduce the environmental impact due to industrial or manufacturing process. Green technology achieves innovation and alternative technologies in various fields by taking in consideration on three main features which is recycle, reduce, reuse as core value in the design stage. “Novel Approach for Single Display Traffic light with Real time Fault Management System (Green Traffic Light)” is designed to implement the concept of green technology into traffic lights. The aim of this research is to introduce single display traffic light system as a revolution to the traditional three display traffic light system. As government and NGO’s encourage green technology and green innovation as a substitute to existing technology, the single display traffic light system could enhance the value of green in the respective technology. The single display traffic light system caters a few important features such as reduce manufacturing cost and maintenance cost, less quantity of component, less industrial process and this will make recyclability even better in the long run. The single display traffic light system also can be powered by using renewable solar energy. The single display traffic light system is designed to operate on full power (brightness) in day time and half power at night. By using such a method will further optimize the energy which is consumed by the system. The conventional traffic light system is a standalone system which is not efficient in tracking faults, maintenance issues and operation of traffic light in real time basis. The fault management system in Global System for Mobile (GSM) communication is designed to detect fault within traffic light system and report the faults via short message service (SMS) to monitoring station and respective authorities in real time basis. Such an approach, could be best utilized by the management in enhancing the efficiency of contractors, able to identify replaced components and directly save maintenance and operation cost.
