With a gradual increase in urban road traffic volume and traffic congestion degree, how to improve and solve the current traffic pressures has been a problem requiring urgent solution. To improve the traffic congestion status in urban road intersections and heighten the road traffic efficiency, the principle of fuzzy control is employed in this paper. Moreover, the multi-phase signal traffic control of intersections is performed together with vehicle queue lengths in lanes corresponding to the key traffic flow, and a traffic signal fuzzy control system is designed. Finally, this paper compares the simulation results between the fuzzy control system designed herein and the existing fixed traffic signal control methods. The comparative test results have shown that the fuzzy control method can well better actual congestion and traffic efficiency at intersections to a greater degree than the fixed timing method does.
