MOTION - A NEW ON-LINE TRAFFIC SIGNAL NETWORK CONTROL SYSTEM

The traffic signal network control system MOTION (Method for the Optimisation of Traffic signals In On-line controlled Networks) which forms part off HERMES is described. The idea of MOTION is to combine the advantages of 'Green Waves' with the flexibility of an immediate response by local signals to actual traffic conditions. Three functional levels are described - strategic, tactical and operational. Network and local local strategies for private traffic and public transport priority are considered in more detail. Brief details are given of a field trial in Cologne. For the covering abstract see IRRD 865401.
