VITAL: A Simulation-Based Assessment of New Traffic Light Controls

This paper reports on a simulation-based test of two new single intersection control algorithms and the methods to be used to get the needed input data for the two new methods. It also demonstrates, that the new methods have the promise of improving the currently used conventional method by 15%-28% on average. Although the results so far are based on a microscopic simulation, efforts have been made to be as close as possible to reality. In a future step the two new methods will be tested in the field at a real intersection.
