Traffic congestion is a major problem in cities. While solving this problem, it is necessary to consider the type of the road and that of the traffic intersection. This paper considers both the lane based and non-lane based roads into account. Traffic density of each road is measured by using infrared sensors. This work introduces a simple and novel algorithm to control traffic lights. Controlling of traffic lights involves two major tasks. One is to decide the next green signal which is to be
