I am in my 3rd year of doing Computer Science and for my project I am doing a traffic light simulation to see how cars intereact with traffic lights
i.e if it is green the cars will move off, if it is red the cars will stop. I want the simulation to be interactive giving the user control of when to change the lights.
My question is, is it possible to do this on Java? I have been to numerous libraries and on the internet/Youtube and have found no books that specialise in Java with simulations. I always thought Java is an OO language, so cannot work out how a simulation will control objects using logic rules (I maybe wrong)
My second question is, would it be better to do it on another programming language?
all opinions welcomed
