ENHANCEMENT OF THE VALUE ITERATION PROGRAM ACTUATED SIGNALS - PART 2. FINAL REPORT

This report describes the work performed in the conduct of an independent review and analysis of all work done previously in the development of the EVIPAS program. The EVIPAS program can be applied to the analysis of the performance of isolated traffic-actuated signal controlled intersections, as well as fixed-time signal controlled intersections. This work led to extensive program testing, debugging, and program modification activity which was the major thrust of the program activity. Several program enhancements that were introduced into EVIPAS are described. Also described are the field verification activity conducted to compare field-measured performance to the corresponding values computed by EVIPAS, the updating of the vehicle operating cost and emission parameters, and the work performed to update the EVIPAS User's Manual in order to make the document more user-friendly. A separate report was prepared under this project, entitled: EVIPAS USERS MANUAL.
