Abstract
In this study a traffic light system has been considered and simulated on Matlab to create hierarchical and logical model. This model is designed over five junctions to solve traffic jam in big cities by simulation of continuous flow of traffic lights. This simulation includes Green Wave flow and dynamic change of traffic lights due to change traffic volume. The simulation secures the continuous traffic flow by updating the light time for providing green wave flow.
