The MATLB (Mobile Agent for Traffic Load Balancing) architecture proposed here is a conceptual service-oriented architecture supporting interoperability of systems implementing Ambient Intelligence (AmI) environment. The objective of the paper Mobile Agent Approach for Traffic Load Balancing using Sensors focuses on building an environment equipped with ambient intelligence that can control the traffic in metropolitan cities without crippling the mobility of users. The growing advancement in Mobile Technology and its supportive tools has a greater impact on the social living of human beings. This agent based architecture with sensors, effectors, filters and middleware is one such approach that balances the traffic load and reduces the risks associated with congestion.
