    Smart traffic lights (or intelligent traffic lights) form a real-time traffic control system by combining traditional traffic lights with an intelligent signal control system (Fig. ).The signal control system uses an array of sensors to detect traffic density and adjusts traffic lights via artificial intelligence to increase traffic efficiency and safety [3]. Traffic signals control vehicle and pedestrian traffic by assigning priorities to various traffic movements to influence traffic flow. Properly designed, located and maintained traffic signals have one or more of these advantages: • Provide for orderly movement of traffic; • Increase .

      According to the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD), when properly used, traffic control signals are valuable devices for the control of vehicular and pedestrian traffic. They assign the right-of-way to the various traffic movements.   The 3 basic hand signals used when controlling traffic.

There are nearly , traffic signals today in the United States. Each traffic signal performs the task of regulating whose turn it is to go and who must wait. A traffic signal system at its core has two major tasks: move as many users through the intersection as possible and do it with as little conflict between these users as s: 9.
