Experimental Report of the Pedestrian Control Using Vehicle Arrival Prediction Information

The signal control (recall control) used at conventional push-button intersections has problems: although more than one vehicle is approaching the intersection, the signal is red thereby stopping the approaching vehicles; or the pedestrian signal does not turn green for a long time although there is no vehicle approaching the intersection. Accordingly, the authors conducted a signal control experiment to reduce unnecessary stop of vehicles and shorten pedestrians' waiting time by controlling the signals in accordance with the arrival of a vehicle on the main road.
