URBAN TRAFFIC CONTROL SYSTEM AND BUS PRIORITY SYSTEM: TRAFFIC ADAPTIVE NETWORK SIGNAL TIMING PROGRAM (TANSTP), 1973

This document describes the Traffic Adaptive Network Signal Timing Program (TANSTP) of the Urban Traffic Control System/Bus Priority System, which is a second generation on-line optimization of signal timing patterns using real-time predictions of volume patterns and on-line subnetwork determination. This document is divided into seven sections. Section 1 is the introduction, and section 2 contains an overview of the entire UTCS/TANSTP software system. Section 3 provides a description of the software system. Section 4 includes a description of the subroutines which were constructed to interface the second generation software with the first generation data base, and section 5 gives a description of themodifications made to the first generation routines to support the second generation package. Section 6 discusses the procedures to be used in operating the UTCS/TANSTP system, and section 7 describes the data base. The appendix contains a description of two off-line programs used to support the prediction. (TSC)
