Abstract: Car traffic control is a big issue nowadays, because of increasing time spent in traffic jams. A common mechanism that allows control of car flow is the use of traffic lights. Beyond static traffic lights' time assignments, we think it is possible to make traffic lights adjust the green time based on the current traffic conditions and coordinating by themselves. This paper presents a multi-agent based coordination mechanism followed by traffic lights in a simulated traffic intersection aiming to reduce the average car waiting time, compared to a traditional mechanism of static green time assignation. We call the mechanism ``conflict-directed'' since it is based on a conflict resolution strategy. The proposed mechanism has been tested with different cases on one and two independent intersections in a simulated environment. An evaluation of the conflict-directed mechanism performance is given.
