Simulation of the Speed Recommendation System for Green Signal Passage

Recent growth in awareness of environmental issues has led to demands for improved vehicle fuel consumption efficiency. Vehicles require large amounts of fuel when stopping and then restarting at intersections. It’s expected to reduce fuel consumption, if appropriate speed can be advised that do not result in stopping at intersection. And it can be realized using traffic signal information obtained from the road side. However, in case of dynamic controlled traffic signal system, provided traffic signal information is not always completely accurate, then it is unclear whether the intended effects can be obtained. This paper reports the results of simulations performed under various environments to calculate the effects of a driving-assist system that recommends speeds enabling vehicles to pass through intersections during green signals.
