EIN PROGRAMMSYSTEM ZUR VERKEHRSABHAENGIGEN SIGNALSTEUERUNG NACH DEM VERFAHREN DER SIGNALPROGRAMMBILDUNG (PBIL) (PBIL - A PROGRAM SYSTEM FOR TRAFFIC ACTUATED CONTROL ACCORDING TO THE METHOD OF SIGNAL PROGRAM GENERATION)
The PBIL program system is the result of a series of research projects the objective of which was the development and use of optimization models for traffic control at intersections with traffic signal controllers. In order to make general use of the PBIL program system, which operates according to the method of signal program generation, a reprogramming with division of the system into free adaptable modules was carried out, including a detailed documentation. This includes a data description, a data flow diagram, brief descriptions of program modules, flow charts as well as a program listing. By way of illustration, the program system was used in a process control computer of the SIEMENS VSR 16000 traffic computer generation. For this purpose and in view of improving operating comfort and minimizing storage and computer time, the data format was changed to meet the requirements of the computer used. In the directions for operators for this program system, the traffic engineering requirements and criteria for use, the process of data handling, the data supply, and the implementation of the program system are summarized. The data obtained thus far make it possible to apply the method by means of a widely used type of computer and/or prepare program modules for other types of computer and computer configurations.
