FUZZY LOGIC CONTROLLER FOR A TRAFFIC JUNCTION

The system is a traffic junction and the problem of its control is considered as a classical example of nonprogrammed decisionmaking, i.e. , decisionmaking characterized by the lack of well-specified analytical means for coping with a particular problem. Thus a linguistic control algorithm is synthesized, capable of dealing with a continuously reproduced decisionmaking situation. The starting point is an adequate (though qualitative) knowledge of the system and a protocol of control instructions used by a human operator. A fuzzy set theoretic representation of these instructions which we call "a fuzzy logic controller" was tried as an answer to the control modeling problem, which gave very satisfactory results. The work done on the construction of the model of the system and the implementation of the fuzzy logic controller is presented.
