This paper presents a fuzzy traffic controller for a set of intersections and its simulation results. The controller of an intersection controls its own traffic and cooperates with its neighbors. It gets information from its traffic detectors and its neighbors. Using this information, the fuzzy rule base system gives optimal signals. It manages phase sequences and phase lengths adaptively to its neighbors' as well as its own traffic conditions. To carry out the performance evaluation of the controller, a simulator for intersection groups has been developed. The proposed method is compared with the vehicle actuated method which is one of the typical conventional methods. The average delay time of a vehicle is used as a performance index. The simulation results show good performance in the case of time-varying traffic patterns and heavy traffic conditions
