Traffic lights control system, application of fuzzy logic, autonomous sytems, congestion control, FGPA based microelectronic chips, multiple emergency vehicles, and multi-agents based autonomous traffic control.
This research work presents an application of fuzzy logic for multi-agent based autonomous traffic lights control system using wireless sensors to overcome problems like congestion, accidents, speed and traffic irregularity. The proposed agent based approach can provide a preferred solution by minimizing the vehicle waiting time especially the emergency vehicles using fuzzy logic control under situations that normally occur during emergency. The effectiveness of this approach is tested by taking two traffic junctions.
