The purpose of this paper is to offer a solution based on the development of a mathematical model in order to optimize traffic lights cycle depending on the timeframe. The model was developed by analyzing and processing data collected from a traffic light intersection of intense traffic in Sibiu, Romania. The model permits the programming of sequences for the fluidization of traffic, through an algorithmic approach. Optimization of traffic light cycle in an urban intersection, with regard to the timeframe and traffic volume, is necessary, in order to increase traffic management quality so that we have sustainable traffic which leads to time gained for the traffic participants in these intersections. Another important aspect gained by this is the optimization of noise management and the decrease of gas emission pollution for these intersections.
