TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT. RTS ENGLISH ISSUE NUMBER 6. INTELLIGENT INTERSECTION: A CONTROL AND MONITORING SYSTEM FOR URBAN INTERSECTIONS

Intelligent intersection is a real time expert system architecture able to deal with (and help to solve) all the problems of urban intersections. It is based upon an integrated software system which is able to work in real time, to communicate (with adjacent junctions, central offices...), to manage many types of detectors, particularly video-based ones, to apply control strategies or work in a local maode. A mock-up of this expert system is currently designed with a real time expert system tool (G2 'from Gensym' Corporation). Herein are described the main components of the system and their linkage, the objects which model the different elements of the junction (traffic lights, entry lanes, exit lanes, conflict zones, movements...) with their mutual interactions. It deals at greater length with the monitoring function which is part of the Drive project INVAID Integration of Computer Vision for Automatic Incident Detection. the paper presents also the main features of the interface between the video-based sensor and the expert system.
