Abstract—The objective of this paper is to discuss a simulation model using agents for the analysis of traffic intersection performance. Once the frequency and speed of cars is selected, the user should run the simulation and adjust the timing of the traffic light so as to minimize the amount of waiting time of cars traveling through the intersection. The primary output from the simulation model is wait time for vehicles to get through intersection. Statistical measures calculated include the mean, median, and 95th-percentileof wait times, as well as the cumulative distribution function of wait times.
