Optimization of smart traffic lights to prevent traffic congestion using fuzzy logic

Dian Hartanti, Rosida Nur Aziza, Puji Catur Siswipraptini


One of the main causes of traffic congestion, especially at intersections, is because traffic lights have not been able to show the right time according to the existing traffic conditions. Time settings based on peak/off-peak traffic lights are not enough to handle unexpected situations. The fuzzy mamdani method makes decisions with several stages, the criteria used are the number of vehicles, the length of the queue and the width of the road to be able to optimize the time settings based on the real-time conditions required so that unwanted green signals (when there is no queue) can be avoided. The purpose of this research is to create a simulator to optimize traffic time management, so that the timers on each track have the intelligence to predict the right time, so that congestion at the intersection can be reduced by adding up to 15 seconds of green light from the previous time in the path of many vehicles.
