OPTIMUM OFFSET--I. DETERMINATION OF THE OPTIMUM OFFSET BETWEEN TWO ADJACENT ROAD JUNCTIONS USING A HILL-CLIMBING TECHNIQUE

The delays and stops incurred on the priority arm between two successive junctions in an urban traffic network are combined in a mathematical relationship. Using a hill-climbing approach, an optimum offset is derived in terms of the parameters of the system which minimizes delay, stops or a weighted combination of the two. The effect of using different predictive models of the interconnecting road on the determination of the optimum offset is investigated. /Author/
