In this paper the proposed Smart Intersection System (SIS), is critically analyzed using several different methods. Together these methods support innovations that have resulted in a well-developed optimum system of traffic control at intersections. These innovations include changes to the physical model design and system functionality. The new system is capable of counting cars at every intersection interactively and is also capable of determining the timing of green light accordingly. Some critical details still need to be defined before the system can be applied to real life intersections. Therefore, future research routs are suggested at the end of the paper.
