Abstract: Traffic lights are installed at intersections mostly for traffic management. Traffic signals turn on during the amount of time determined. Intelligent traffic management systems emerge as a need to handle the dynamicity of traffic. These systems are first implemented on simulators in order to mimic the real life situations before realization. Yet, we have implemented a real time traffic simulator with an adaptive fuzzy inference algorithm that arranges the foreseen light signal duration. It changes the time duration of lights depending on waiting vehicles behind green and red lights at crossroad. The simulation has also been supported with real time graphical visualization. Given a scenario, it creates random traffic flows according to specified parameters. Next, obtained results have been interpreted in the simulation environment. According to inferences from adaptive environment, TSK (Takagi-Sugeno-Kang) and Mamdani models have also been implemented to give baselines for verification. Several experiments have been conducted and compared against classical techniques such as Webster (1958) Road research technical paper No 39 and HCM (2000) TRB, special report 209, statistically to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
