URBAN TRAFFIC SIGNAL CONTROL FOR FUEL ECONOMY

ECONOMIE D'ESSENCE GRACE A LA COMMANDE DES FEUX DE CIRCULATION EN ZONE URBAINE

The results show that under the TRANSYT timing plan, vehicles encountered fewer stops, saved time and used a slightly smaller amount of fuel than under the existing timing plan (based on SIGRID). A linear regression analysis showed that fuel consumption could be expressed adequately as a linear combination of either delay time and stops or travel time and stops.
