Abstract Traffic control involves analysis of both detected traffic flow and environmental conditions. Due to individual behavior of traffic participants, and the inherent uncertainty of weather condition interpretations, a mathematical model can not fully describe traffic control problems. The paper discourses two aspects of a traffic management system for multi-lane highways with variable road signs. First, fuzzy logic is used to take into account the uncertainties of traffic data, and to detect traffic congestion in isolated road sections. Second, a traffic control approach using a fuzzy model based on experience is shown. Both approaches were implemented in an existing traffic control system of the B27, a state highway between Stuttgart city, Stuttgart airport, and Tuebingen. The paper compares the results of the new approach with the previous approach based on conventional control technology.
