CONTROL AND EVALUATION OF TRAFFIC ACTUATED SIGNAL SYSTEMS IN URBAN AREAS

STEUERUNG UND BEWERTUNG VERKEHRSABHAENGIGER SIGNALANLAGEN IM STADTSTRASSENNETZ

Survey of latest traffic actuated signal control systems for intersections, road sections, road systems; survey of the literature. Time- and traffic actuated computer signal system selection is the best traffic control for urban networks. It should be based on optimal fixed-time signal signal selections (Siglink, Sigop, Transy OECD is urged to introduce a basis of reference for future comparative research. Destination has to be formulated as a function as a function for the optimization program. It is proposed to minimize loss of time per person transported rather than per vehicle in order to support public transportation. Optimal fixed-time selection programs will be feasible control concepts for the future. In addition, intersection loads may have to be kept below the saturation level by special restrictions on the incoming traffic and special control systems may have to be used to avoid oversaturation of critical traffic junctions.
