This paper demonstrates car traffic control system by using LAN networking. It is one of the first efforts to study the feasibility of using LAN networking for traffic control. The aim of this paper is to design and implement the network based car traffic control system. This system mainly comprises of signalized junctions and central computer (sever) that is connected to every traffic signal junction (clients). Its main task is to adjust, in real times, signal timings in response to variation in traffic demand and system capacity. Real time data from traffic controls are collected and transported to a central computer (server) for analysis.
