Abstract: Agent technology has been demonstrated to be an advance computational science capable to achieve substantial improvements in a cover range of applications because of its paradigm of decision-making structure based on cognitive reasoning. In this sense, the paper introduces the development of a novel methodology that allows including a formal model founded on autonomous and intelligent agents capable to manipulate the phases of the cycles in a traffic lights infrastructure according to the requirements and constraints of the road. This process improves effectively and immediately the quality of the service in an intersection, increasing the performance of the vehicular mobility and the generation of emissions, when vehicles are stopped in a red light. To corroborate this, the article presents some experiments in order to compare the proposed methodology against a pre-programmed infrastructure. Finally, conclusions are presented to emphasize the effectiveness and usefulness of the developed methodology whit the main intention of achieving an adequate traffic control of an expanding city.

Keywords: Intelligent systems, vehicular simulation and optimization, autonomous agents
