Use of Model Based Signal Control Systems and Other Signal Control Systems in Germany

Traffic signals to a large extent determine traffic quality in urban road networks. To increase the traffic flow in urban areas it is useful to coordinate traffic signals. In Germany the coordination of traffic signals on arterials has a great tradition, but the coordination of more complex networks is relatively new in German cities. Therefore a team of researchers, practitioners from public authorities and consultant companies gathered to write a guideline for the use of these systems. In this guideline information about the systems currently used in Germany has been collected and a checklist for the implementation and maintenance of these systems has been developed. This paper describes the structure, methodology and content of the guideline and presents it to an international audience. The guideline is currently in the last review phase and will be published most likely at the end of 2013.
