Abstract: Urban traffic network model is illustrated by state-charts and object-diagram. However, they have limitations to show the behavioral perspective of the traffic information flow. Consequently, a state space model is used to calculate the half-value waiting time of vehicles. In this study, a combination of the general type-2 fuzzy logic sets and the modified backtracking search algorithm (MBSA) techniques are used in order to control the traffic signal scheduling and phase succession so as to guarantee a smooth flow of traffic with the least wait times and average queue length. The parameters of input and output membership functions are optimized simultaneously by the novel heuristic algorithm MBSA. A comparison is made between the achieved results with those of optimal and conventional type-1 fuzzy logic controllers.
