Remarks on Traffic Signal Coordination

12 pagesPublished: August 13, 2019


The co-ordination between traffic signals is assumed to be important for the good organization of a transport system. By using an artificial approach to create and analyze a multitude of transportation systems, a few different simple traffic signals programs has been put to the test and compared to each other. The result is that a well co-ordinated system can be outperformed by a non-coordinated signal set-up, where all signals controlers run in (single intersection) actuated mode. Clearly, these results are preliminary and require more investigation.

Keyphrases: traffic signal co-ordination, traffic signal optimization, traffic simulation
