Development of Traffic Signal Control based on Statistical Travel Time

In Japan, widely deployed traffic signal control methods, aiming to relieve congestion, calculate control parameters based on traffic volume and occupancy rates. In signal control, travel time and delay time are thought to be desirable performance indexes. Nevertheless these methods adopt other indexes in the calculation of control parameters. Thus it has been pointed out that reduction of travel time and delay time is not necessarily guaranteed in the operation of these methods. To solve the drawback, the authors proposed a new control method which has target travel time for a target route and attempt to realize the time. Their method determines signal control parameters on the basis of the travel time estimated with a traffic flow model. They conducted a simulation experiment and field experiment using the proposed method on a national road in Chiba Prefecture to validate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
