OPTIMAL TIMING SETTINGS AND DETECTOR LENGTHS OF PRESENCE MODE FULL-ACTUATED CONTROL

The operation of presence mode full-actuated signal control at individual intersections is governed primarily by the choice of detector length and the timing settings of vehicle interval and maximum green. The relationships between these control variables and the control efficiency vary with the flow pattern at an intersection. Based on the results of computer simulations, the optimal combinations of detector length, vehicle interval, and maximum green are identified for a wide range of flow conditions. The analyses performed in this study concern only intersections where vehicle approach speeds are less than 35 mph.
