ABSTRACT: Traffic jam often occurs around the signalized intersection because each takes Â¿stop-and-go costÂ¿ to pass through the intersection. Stop-and-go cost traffic increases air pollution and gas consumption, produces greater wear and tear on vehicles, and costs people and businesses money in the delay it imposes. Hence, traffic signal control has significant meanings in reducing the traffic jams efficiently. A modification method of traffic signal control management based on self-organizing is introduced. The self-organizing observed in nonlinear coupled oscillators is referred to as Â¿synchronizationÂ¿, where oscillators having difference natural frequencies are phase locked with some phase delay as result of their mutual or one-side intersection. Simulation illustrate that the new approach is technically sound, moreover it can be implemented in real situation even in non-structure intersection like in Indonesia.
