In this paper, we describe an approach of modeling and simulation based on multi-agent theory to build the model of traffic system. Our model presents a traffic system including traffic light system at a ‘+’ junction. This paper controls duration of red-light/green-light to release traffic congestion on roads. In addition, we establish six Vietnamese traffic rules in our model. The simulation model represents real traffic system in GAMA platform with GAML language. All systems are visualization in GUI to show the participant of vehicles and traffic light on roads.
