COMPARISON AMONG PRE-TIMED, PLAN SELECTION AND KNOWLEDGE-BASED STRATEGIES FOR INDIVIDUAL JUNCTION CONTROL

Traffic control systems are generally distinguished into pre-timed and vehicle-actuated. In pre-timed strategies, the signal plans are calculated on the basis of historical traffic volumes and implemented without taking into account the current flow values; in vehicle actuated operations, the change of the signals is dynamically influenced by the users (flows or vehicles). This paper compares the performance obtainable in single junction control using three different strategies (pre-timed, plan selection and knowledge-based). The results, produced through simulation, indicate that the knowledge-based system produces better results especially for low and medium congestion situations.
