DESCRIPTION OF SPERRY TRAFFIC ANALYSIS AND RESEARCH (STAR) SIMULATION PROGRAM. DIVERSION OF INTERCITY TRAFFIC AT A SINGLE POINT
The Sperry Traffic Analysis & Research (STAR) Program provides a multiple-roadway/freeway simulation capability. As such it provides the required tool to investigate the dynamics of a large scale roadway system and to design and evaluate appropriate surveillance and control algorithms. It can simulate changing roadway characteristics, independent or dependent entrance ramp volumes, service areas, two component origin-destination studies, arbitrary detector site locations and local and/or global control strategies. The simulation program was utilized to evaluate several control strategies developed under the single point diversion design effort. This report discusses the mathematical theory and computer programs of the simulation.
