This paper explores the application of dynamic traffic control timings using predefined input parameters. The method is a dynamic traffic algorithm that takes the rate of inflow, rate of outflow and queue length as input parameters to estimate the green-time that must be allocated to each road. The basic idea is to efficiently distribute the green-time based on traffic congestion in contrast to traditional methods of fixed time for traffic lights irrespective of their traffic status. The paper also compares the differences between these two methods based on some efficiency parameters using a simulator.
