URBAN TRAFFIC CONTROL SYSTEM AND BUS PRIORITY SYSTEM: TRAFFIC ADAPTIVE NETWORK SIGNAL TIMING PROGRAM (TANSTP)

This document describes the Traffic Adaptive Network Signal Timing Program (TANSTP) of the Urban Traffic Control System/Bus Priority System. The TANSTP software package uses the executive structure, the surveillance data, and the command software of the first generation package which was installed in the original UTCS System. (The first generation utilizes a pre-stored timing pattern.) TANSTP is a second generation on-line optimization of signal timing patterns using real-time predictions of volume patterns and on-line subnetwork determination. This document is divided into seven sections. Section 1 is the introduction and Section 2 contains an overview of the entire UTCS/TANSTP software system. Section 3 provides a description of the softward routines; Section 4 includes a description of the subroutines which were constructed to interface the second generation softward with the first generation data base; and Section 5 gives a description of the modifications made to the first generation routines to support the second generation package. Section 6 discusses the procedures to be used in operating the UTCS/TANSTP System and Section 7 describes the data base. The Appendix contains a description of two off-line programs used to support the prediction. /FHWA/
