% Traffic lights (CSPLib problem 16, see http://csplib.org/Problems/prob016)
%
% Specification:
% Consider a four way traffic junction with eight traffic lights.
% Four of the traffic lights are for the vehicles and can be
% represented by the variables V1 to V4 with domains {r,ry,g,y} (for
% red, red-yellow, green and yellow). The other four traffic lights
% are for the pedestrians and can be represented by the variables P1
% to P4 with domains {r,g}. The constraints on these variables can be
% modelled by quaternary constraints on (Vi, Pi, Vj, Pj ) for
% 1<=i<=4, j=(1+i)mod 4 which allow just the tuples
% {(r,r,g,g), (ry,r,y,r), (g,g,r,r), (y,r,ry,r)}.
%
% We are interested in the set of all globally consistent 8-tuples
% (which reflects the evolution of the traffic light sequence).
%
%
% Sample run:
% % eclipse -f traffic_lights_backtrack.ecl -e main
% [r, r, g, g, r, r, g, g]
% [ry, r, y, r, ry, r, y, r]
% [g, g, r, r, g, g, r, r]
% [y, r, ry, r, y, r, ry, r]
%
% Simple backtracking search solution, no constraint propagation
