Tram Signal Priority Strategy Using Bandwidth Model

This research suggests the tram progression model on city arterial. This model was formulated based on MAXBAND MILP-2 for the tram passive signal priority. In this model, the tram which leaves the station during green band can arrive at the next station without the intersection delay and stops using the tram bandwidth. In addition, this model calculates the traffic signal timings for the auto progression. This strategy can make the maximized general vehicles bandwidth with fixed tram bandwidth in median tram lane. The case study based on 9 signalized intersections and a micro-simulator VISSIM showed that the proposed tram passive priority model computed the signal timings to avoid the intersection delay and stops of tram and to keep the auto bandwidth.
