Complex control systems that operate in not entirely predictable environment have to deal with this environment in an autonomous manner using adaptability, the ability to predict environmental changes, and to maintain their integrity. Elements of the system must be able to find a new solution in a dynamic way. In this paper, we present the modeling of a traffic lights’ control system using a multivalent system. This is a large-scale distributed system, consisting of autonomous and rational traffic light agents, in which there is no centre imposing an outcome. Multiagent system brings another kind of organization of the distributed control. The information is distributed over the agents. The behavior of the other agents is incorporated into the making decision process of the agent. We apply different control algorithms in our multiagent simulation environment and show that using multiagent systems in dynamic and unpredictable environment the control will be adoptable.
