The traffic problem is a significant concern for many metropolitans around the world. Controlling the flow of traffic is problematic in terms of many complexities and uncertainties. Despite this situation, this problem needs to be solved as it reduces the productivity and living standards. Modern traffic control methods offer a more effective solution, unlike traditional methods. The regions with the highest traffic density in cities are the regions with many traffic intersections. In this paper, using the Simulation of Urban MObility (SUMO) program, a multi-traffic intersection simulation environment was created by gathering data from a crucial real-life region in Istanbul. Using Fuzzy Logic Control (FLC) and actuated control methods, traffic light controllers are designed for multiple intersections. The results are compared using the data obtained from the designed traffic light control methods and traditional traffic light control methods.
