Abstract: Based on the traffic flow pattern in single intersection, this paper advances a design method for intelligent traffic lights in the state of stochastic dynamic change of traffic flow by employing the Fuzzy Control Theory. The application of fuzzy control technology to achieve the traffic lights control system not only breaks the traditional mechanical models but also manages to simulate intelligence control system in which the traffic is directed by the police, making possible signal conversion for different situations and optimum delay time of green light. It is proved that the fuzzy control system can effectively reduce the delay time length of waiting vehicles. In consideration of the randomness and robustness of traffic flow, this paper employs the Monte Carlo method in combination with MATLAB to simulate, which proved to be more effective than the traditional control method. It significantly increases the utilization rate of traffic, thereby generating considerable economic benefits.


Keywords: Single intersection, Fuzzy control, Intelligent traffic lights, Monte Carlo, Simulation.
