Title: Vehicle traffic control system

Abstract: A vehicle traffic control system that does not cause course conflicts at intersections. A present position, speed, and destination of each vehicle are collected, vectors are generated to indicate possible courses for each vehicle on the basis of the collected information, and vectors indicating courses of each vehicle are combined to generate matrices. Only matrices where a plurality of vehicles do not approach an identical intersection at or around the same time, or even if such a situation occurs, only matrices where a course of a certain vehicle does not cross a course of another vehicle at that intersection, are employed. Of the employed matrixes, one is selected indicating a course set in which an average time required for each vehicle to reach a destinations is shortest.
