Conference report - International Symposium on Traffic Control Systems, Berkeley, California

A limited review of the papers presented at the international symposium on traffic control systems held in berkeley, california, 6-9 August 1979, is given. The report concentrates on the papers presented during technical sessions on urban street control systems, traffic simulation models, and strategy optimisation and analytical models, as well as the related resource papers included in volume 1 of the proceedings which was available at the time of writing this report. The report is concluded with a summary of several important issues raised in the papers reviewed and recommendations for future research in related areas, in particular regarding the development of computer programs which combine traffic control and traffic assignment procedures. Among the conclusions are: (a) there is still room for the development of traffic models and control techniques even at a single intersection level; in particular, our knowledge on oversaturated system control is limited; (b) simulation studies would be helpful in the evaluation of traffic control strategies in view of real life evaluation difficulties; (c) there should be more emphasis on research and application of signal control coupled with other forms of traffic control (a).
