ESTIMATION OF TRAFFIC FLOW PARAMETERS IN URBAN TRAFFIC NETWORKS

The basic problem addressed is the development of better software for the computer control of urban traffic. Previous research indicates that the computer software, and especially the filtering and prediction algorithm, is the limiting factor in computerized traffic control. Recently developed techniques for the filtering, prediction and control of point processes, the type of statistics that occur in traffic flow, are used to develop filtering and prediction algorithms to facilitate the development of traffic responsive urban traffic control systems.
