Development of Vehicle Delay and Queue Length Models for Adaptive Traffic Control at Signalized Roundabout

Vehicle delay and queue length models are important indexes to optimize signal timing plan for a signalized roundabout. However, at present much attention is paid on unsignalized roundabouts. In this paper, the authors firstly analyzed the impacts of phasing schemes on vehicle movements and brought forward two typical phasing schemes. The loop detector layout plan was established to detect vehicle volumes of different streams in real time. Then under each phasing scheme, the models for average vehicle delay and queue length were developed respectively. Finally, a case study was conducted to evaluate the models using field data collected from a real signalized roundabout in Guiyang, China. The results show that: all precision errors are smaller than 15% and average precision errors are smaller than 10%. The developed two types of models can satisfy the requirements of engineering.
