The model and regulation of traffic systems are difficult tasks. Nevertheless Systems Theory and classic tools can be used to obtain the model and to regulate traffic respectively. A common way to organize traffic in a town area is to do a centralized control of the red lights based on queuing theory. Our approach is to distribute the control between a central system and on board car controllers that command every vehicle automatically according to the traffic rules. In order to do it we will implement fuzzy expert systems in computers augmented with fuzzy coprocessors and we will equip the vehicles with the necessary computers, instrumentation and communications.
