ROAD-TRAFFIC CONTROL WITH THE PARTICULAR REFERENCE TO TOKYO TRAFFIC CONTROL AND SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM

This paper outlines the problems, methods, and principles of traffic control and describes the state of the art with reference to the Tokyo Traffic Control and Surveillance System. The Tokyo system will cover 8000 signalized intersections. Major features of the system are on-line traffic data collection, dynamic selection of control modes, dynamic formulation of tree offset pattern, dynamic formation of cycle and split patterns, multilevel fallback structure, and high reliability design and computerized maintenance. Some of the results of floating car surveys, accident statistics as well as the estimated reduction in exhaust emission and fuel consumption are also presented.
