This study presents design of traffic light system with feedback control that considers a crossroad in an urban area. Two types of controllers are designed -fuzzy and analytical, which have been tested separately on Aimsun platform through a simulation. The aim of the study was to compare the performance of both controllers in terms of increasing traffic flow and decreasing queue length. The controllers manage the duration of green light according to the traffic flow. Two different formal models are designed, tested and compared. They produced adequate solutions in terms of developing of controllers for modelling and simulation of transportation tasks.
